Any body have a CAD file of a B5M chassis they could share with me for a project?

Many thanks

Recently picked up the MIP pucks kit #14230. It has the aluminum outdrives and shafts. Ive read a few places that the aluminum upgrade kit is "too light" and drastically changes the balance of the car, and decreases performance in some cases. Also, I noticed it is stated for best use with a 17.5 stock set up. Im currently running a 13.5 M3 with a reedy blackbox 800z. Has anyone had experience with the pucks upgrade running with a 13.5? Or experience with them in general? any tips would be appreciated. thanks!

Well, I haven't tried it with a 13.5, but I did try the system in mine for the first time last Sat. with a 17.5, & honestly, I couldn't tell any difference in car balance, felt just as good as the previous Sat. with the kit diff & universals. But I did confirm that the little orange pucks themselves do wear pretty quickly, mine are not ready to replace yet, but I did notice more wear than I would've expected from one race day. But aside from that I'm pretty pleased with it....

Nice! Glad you dig it. I suppose ill just keep a good eye on the pucks. Maybe the 13.5 with go through em a tad bit faster but i guess we'll see.

I'm running the ful Al system and added a 25gram brass d mount. The net weight gain was 6 grams with 25 gram brass d mount.

My pucks seemed to wear faster too. I was not planning on replacing them yet but I had to check my diff and while in there I noticed my orange pucks had more wear on them than I've ever had. I'm glad I caught it because at that rate they would have split on the next race day.

Dang, by the looks of it...pucks seems to be the exception to the upgrade. Im running aluminum c & d mounts. Ive got a decent setup running the stock components at the moment thats gotten me a few podiums, so Im a bit reluctant to swap anything. But am i missing out on performance that the pucks could deliver? I suppose I should install the pucks and report back.

looks like an m3 2mm set screw, don't quote me on that though.

So I'm putting a mod motor in my B5M lite (to try it out) since I have the B6 for stock racing. My B5M was pretty dialed to my driving style when I didn't have the B6 yet. My question is ... since I have all that power, should I stiffen the suspension a bit to compensate ?

like how much? maybe keep the springs and piston setup and just go higher on the shock oil? or a bit more drastic?

I ran stock with rear(green springs, 2 hole-1.7 pistons, 27.5 oil) ; front (white springs, 2-hole 1.6 pistons, 30 oil)

I would start out with a lil thicker oil for starters.

For those running on high grip carpet, what's a good starting point for oil weight in a gear diff?

I see 3 setup sheets on petit that show 2k for mod, and 1 setup sheet from Jeff Helms showing 5k in 17.5. So I would use that info for a starting point.
