Anyone know what springs I should use on carpet for my b5m championship edition? I'm sure something stiffer than stock.

You are the one that ordered the wrong parts. No need to blame associated

i did this awhile back with some outdoor tires with some well worn in aka evo foams. here are pictures - you cut the bead to make them fit properly.

The front I'm using red springs/37.5 wt oil/1.6 piston/2 limiters/o mm spring cup, rear I'm using gray springs/32.5 wt oil/1.6 piston/2 limiters/o mm spring cup. I just installed the 1.5 pistons to slow compression and rebound down, but haven't tested it yet.

You're right,
I'm starting with grey/front, white/rear
and can go until red/front , yellow/rear
depending of the track conditions (grip, pack, t,use of tire sauce...)

I just got back into the hobby after a 2 1/2 yr hiatus. Upgraded from my Centro C4.2 to B5M just last month thinking I'll get with the times. After all it's only been 2 years on the B5 platform and hell the B4 went through 10yrs of updating.
Bummed about jumping back in 4 weeks too soon to the release of the new buggy. Anyway, I finally have my B5M dialed and love it. So much more responsive in handling compared to my C4.2. Gonna keep the B5M for a while as my fun factor level is at an all time high.

Same here. I just upgraded to the B5M Lite two months ago. Handles great and has helped me shave seconds off my lap times.

Depending on your track, I think the B5M will still be competitive for a while.
