No pucks according to him. Didn't ask the weight. The schuur speed is definitely a 100$ motor but I didn't think the difference would be so drastic. Maybe my TrakPower MS 17.5 really just sucks.

Its good for everything....it allows the chassis to flex properly. I have ran it outdoors / indoors, low traction / high traction.

Rock on, the manual does tend to be a bit conservative.

My Hitec servo is a super tight fit even with the spacers removed, anyone experience binding of the linkage? I am thinking of using a dremel to create a little room.

That's what I had to do when I added the alum steering rack.

Considering a lay down from shapeways for my b5m FL. Before I do tho, curious how a b5m with a lay down stacks up against the new b6. Is the b6 noticeably better than the b5m? Or does a dialed in b5m with lay down contend well against the new car? Considering I run same power plant (17.5) setup in each chassis, does one out perform the other?

I have both... B5M Lite and B6. The only advantage the B6 has is in the corners. Now, I run the B6 with laydown and gear diff and the XB2 carpet edition on clay med/high traction track. Both are fast in the corners and easy to drive. (when setup right to your driving style)

Hey guys,

I own a B5R myself and have to do a little maintenance to the shocks, but I'm a little bit confused.

I have not upgraded the shocks in any way, they're completely box stock.

Wanted to buy the #91615 and #91619 Shock Shafts (V2), TiN, but Asso states they're for the Kashima shocks and are not compatible with the E-clip shafts.
What does that mean? Is there any difference in the Kashima shocks except the coating to the stock shock bodies?

If #91615 und #91619 fit the stock bodies, do I need new pistons or what does the term 'These screw-mounted shafts are not compatible with our E-clip shafts.' mean?


Also I want to upgrade to the X-rings - does #91495 '12mm V2 X-Ring Rebuild Kit' fit the stock bodies?


I hope you guys can help me with this issue

If I were you I would get the following to upgrade your stock shocks:

91495 X-Ring rebuild kit
91305 (X2) Ti_Nitride shock shafts Rear
91306 (X2) Ti_Nitride shock shafts Front

You're set!
