They'll still need the b5 & b5m (unless they are bringing out 2 or 3 cars, lay down, mid & rear) just seems excessive. I also believe that the b5 with b5m conversion is to get rid of the b5r's that haven't been selling for ages. Everyone choose the b5m (most everyone)

On a b5m 17.5 setup question. I'm in Oz low-medium high grip dirt/clay tracks. Outdoor and predominantly larger then U.S. Tracks. Ok that's the background.

Has anyone who races stock tried the Spencer Rivkin stock setup he posted last year. Love to hear people's feedback on how it drives. Was thinking of trying, though I'll keep the shocks a bit softer.

Lastly, do many of you guys tune with FDR at different tracks/grip. I've got a double that I'm just a tad short of taking. I've been single-single. If I raised my FDR I suspect I might make it. But also will increase chances of wheelspin. I won't take the doubles unless it's a 95%er. It's close and with like 5% more speed and some practice it could get there. Thoughts?

I'll give both changes a chance at timed practice this Friday, just interested to hear thoughts.
I have always had good luck using Kody Numedahl's setups.

I did the math,
$199 b5 w/[email protected] tower hobbies minus discount of $30 = $170
$85 b5m to b5m CE conversion @ Amain minus $10 discount of $50 order= $75
add that up and you get a B5m CE with rear motor option for $245
Sounds pretty damn good to me!!!

Despite getting my hand slapped for derailing this thread more.. Source? I only saw one leaked photo of the entire car. Kind of hard to tell from the pic that I saw what all of the changes were. Looked like just a new rear shock tower and new transmission.

It was clear [pun intended] to us that making a transmission for the #B5M would have been a compromise, we are not comfortable with that and have WAY more in the tank that we want to share with all of you! #FullFrontal #SLA #WeAreAE

I read on REDRC about this weekend EOS race that Associated was using this season to prepare a full assault on the series next year. So I would expect a full out carpet car to be announced as well as an updated dirt car.
