TLR makes nice light aluminum nuts plus you get 6, not gonna find anything at a hardware store.

Ok, just imagine the "stock" setting is +1mm. They give you a -2mm side with 3mm of spacers makes "stock" or you can run the +2mm option to get 1mm higher than stock without spacers... Fwiw the stock piece also has -2 and +2 sides. Unless you have an earlier standard B5M and not the lite or CE.

I guess I didn't explain myself well enough as I could barely understand what I wrote myself. The stock has +2 and - 2. I was running +2 with 3mm of spacers. It seems the exotek has - 2 and 0. So I am running the 0 setting with 5mm of spacers. Is that correct? Seems like a lot of spacers on there!

Use the 0mm option on the mount, add 1mm shim for smaller indoor track, or 2mm for larger outdoor track and tune from there.

For the B5M on low traction I did some stuff according to ray mundays setup sheets.
I put up my B5R's shocks, added 25g in the rear and the car was pretty much nice on low traction dirt.

But I found this (I havent really looked at this, but as I read the hudy setup guide). Shouldnt be the shims at the ball stud mount? This would raise the roll center and give me more rear traction, wouldn't it?

Lower rear roll center (more roll)= raise the inner, or lower the outer ball stud locations.

The aluminum ball stud mount you show in the picture is already installed in the "+2" position in relation to the plastic mount that the original B5M had.

How do you increase steering in a high speed corner without slowing down? I have grey and 35 wt in front right now and white and 32.5 wt at the rear.

Got a Team Driver Colleague who sells his B5m. Car is kit, seems to be in pretty good shape.
Comes with a Reedy Sonic M1 7.5T, Nosram Pearl V2 and 1015DS Servo.

He'd like to have 180$...Any thoughts on that? Is the electronic still capable?

Good price IMO. That's still a pretty good electronics package too

Thanks, just had a look at the esc and it seems that it's at least 6 years old?
