yep wrong chassis it seems.

I'd move on to building shocks and the gear box and maybe they can reimburse you for a chassis if you get it locally.

Default Gear Diff for Associated B5 / B5M - Part difficult to find

Hi - I am looking for a gear diff for B5 / B5M.
The part is ASC91461
At most online shop, it is in back-ordered status. Do you know if this part is discontinued ?
Thanks
Julien

I just bought one, but had to buy the gear-set, outdrives and housing separately.

I see later on in the manual that the Chassis brace '91521' is secured also to the chassis, but those holes don't line up.

Did I get the wrong chassis brace? I checked the supplements to no avail. Thanks.
T5m chassis

Which is fine - throw it in the forsale forums and buy the SLRC chassis for your b5m.

They will, I was missing a servo mount for my 44.3 and they sent me one. Just need to send them an email with copy (picture) of receipt or fax it.

Thanks a ton for replying to me. I contacted him and he said he'd send me his setup, he seems like a pretty awesome dude. Thanks again for taking the time to help me out.

My daughters car had the same issue when out track starts to get blown out and broken up. We put the other caster inserts in and it made a world of difference.

You can also add a couple weight chunks under the servo arm ( 2 chunks should be enough)

Good luck

If you are running a super long rear camber link and low rear roll centre this may be hurting your on power steering. Normally we are running 3mm spacer on the hub, and on the inside rear hole of the hub (#2 hole as per this sheet: https://www.teamassociated.com/pdf/c...for-B5-B5M.pdf)

As mentioned below moving weight to the front (moving battery forward or adding weight at the front) will help on power steering, but can also hurt forward traction.

The 1.7mm rear pistons generally give more rear traction if its a little bumpy, but shouldn't be the difference between having on power push or not. Weight distribution and rear roll centre play a much bigger role.
