I just want the trans. Hope it's a package and not a kit. That is definitely for the b5m, direct copy of worlds.

definitely looks close. The picture looks like the rear tower could maybe be mounted front or rear. I would expect them to make a conversion if the front clip is the same.

so what does the laydown do for the car exactly? it looks like its pushing the motor and battery foward more so its just pushing the weight towards the front is that all its doing weight distrubution?

which is confusing because i see a lot of people in the b5m putting there shortys towards the rear not the front ..

In short, it lowers the center of gravity allowing the vehicle to be pushed harder through corners on high traction surfaces with much less chance of traction rolling. There's quite a bit more to it, but that's the main benefit.

Avid just released their updated bell cranks for the B5/T5M/SC5M Series.

Default If I were Associated?

It'd be real simple...

gearbox
shock tower
rear camber link
battery box
same chassis - re-drilled for waterfall moved north

B5M CA - Carpet / Astro conversion

$99.00 for those that race on such conditions

Yeah I recall the B5 leak in the online manual.


But in this case, I have never seen a pull down text box like that on the AE site. I just went and poked around and was unable to get any text pull downs to happen. There may very well be a B6/B6D coming. I suspect AE will release more info tomorrow, since they have been letting the info come out slowly over the last few days
