On another note, I won the A tonight. Pretty big accomplishment for me, even though almost all the WWHD guys were in Tucson haha.

Wow, I sure would like to see video of this!
I have literally never seen that part break.
Could somebody figure out how to do it? Yeah perhaps.
How can you make it stronger? Idk apart from not hitting stuff...

Okay...does I have the wrong part, I got the B5M Lite version.

Does this bulk head have a cause to it?

I cracked one around the screw heads after more than a year on it. I'm thinking its related to few really bad hits. It could be related to temperatures seeing how you are in Sweden but only you know how cold it has been.

I have managed to break the same part but this was on a track with the nasty corrugated pipe and was hitting the same section (nasty tight chicane after a high speed section) at least three times. Running the AE aluminum bulkhead. Running a metal part instead of the plastic will transfer hits a lot harder since the forgiveness of plastic bulkhead is gone. My solution, just be careful.

I have broken one and my daughter broke one. I came up short on the triple and faced into the jump and snap. My daughter hit a pipe....but that is around 18-24 months of racing on each car. The solution.....dont hit stuff it is not fragile, but it will break.

I have also broken the hard version of that part, shorted a big triple. All plastic parts with no aluminum will asist

I caught a nasty pipe on left side and snapped a few bulkheads at An out of town track. Coming off the straight to a right hand sweeper then try to straighten out a slight s section to a right hand turn put you into this left Side wall pipe if you pushed to wide. Guys were snapping bulkheads, some other were ripping the full left side off in 4wd. Took about 5 minutes to get back out there but not hitting stuff is the key to going faster. Alum. probably would have then broke front arms.

Yesterday was cleaning car and went to an alum for the front pin conversion and
went back to the BR rear arms since I put the b5m on initially. Hope to square up a bit faster. Home track has great new layout with a few high speed 180's.

Going back this is a B5M discussion and the banter about the future of the B5m makes sense to me to be here. Also how many times AE B5m questions asked and on the first several posts by Buddha would be answered, if you don't like reading then a newsgroup is not the place to be in general.

Read an article on sharing of information. Can't remember the exact numbers but you will get my drift. Use to take over 300 years for something on another continent to get across the world, how do do something better etc., then that has reduced over the years and the age of the Internet has dropped faster to the point they say our collective sharing of information is now at something of 72 hours so 2 years of sharing information across the world just on the B5m leap frogs advancements. I remember when I use to wait for magazines to come out to see all the new stuff on whatever I was into, which in this day and age is already ancient. My kid doesn't even get on the Internet before the walking dead finale because New York might blow the ending for the west coast peeps which is a few hours ahead. So a few years on one car is a long time in the collective sharing of Information Age. A new car or updating of major shit ain't no crazy thought when the world shares our hacks and changes daily.
