Check into the mono wheels, great deal and work great. I've had great luck with AKA impacts and PL holeshots on the rear and just ribs up front..

Most definitely newcomer the Orion and Trinity in 5mm post pods. Just a soft rear tire something that doesn't like to load up.

You should look into SMC or Fantom packs, Orions are way overpriced for the same performance. As for tires you should ask the locals what is a good tire to run. Pretty difficult to answer that online.

Hi there!

I asked a couple of days ago if the PL-body for the centro-conersion kit will fit the B5M: well, I did not get an answer so I ordered the body and tried myself:
... it does fit! okay, it does not fit exactly but it is quite okay, it is just the chassis part around the servo that is not perfect.

Now I have two more questions (I red almost 200 pages of this thread and did not find answers, so I apologize for not reading the hole thread first):

1: my shocks tend to leak; any recommendations on what o-rings I have to use?

2: which one to prefer?: screwed pistons (V2 shock shafts) or the the std ones (clipse)

thx for an answer!!

I've had good luck with the Pro-Line Holeshots for the front and the Pro-Line Calibers for the rear, best to ask the locals what tires work best though

I would recommend associated x-rings. Since I installed x-rings in two cars none of them have leaked a drop. Good stuff.
The shafts with the screwed pistons are better, you can use machined pistons which are more precise, Not a deal breaker, the other shafts work fine. Your call.

Leaking occurs most likely due to old/swollen o-rings that have been torn up/split. Just get a shock rebuild kit (they are just the seal parts) and rebuild them slowly. Many people coat the o-rings with the green slime product offered by Associated. This helps keep them from swelling. So smash some of that on the o-rings before you put them in. You could go without the green slime and lube the o-rings with shock oil. This causes the swelling to begin with. It's naturally going to happen anyways. Lube the shaft before you send it through as well. Make sure you get the rest of the parts in there in the correct attitude and in the right order.
Beyond that, there could be a problem with the shaft itself. There's no fixing a shaft issue outside of replacing it.
Last but not least it may be possible but unlikely that the shock body itself has an issue at the seal end but that would take one heck of a massive hit to cause that. I have had somebody land on my shock causing the shock body to dent enough where it couldn't travel.

... I'm going to rebuild my shocks with new o-rings (x-rings)!
Thanks for your advice!

X-Rings are the best. spend a few more and get the machined internal spacers that were release for the B6. It's like butter.

What do you guys do for more turn in with this buggy i run 3 gear /mod motor on med traction to high clay ? I have tried to use 1mm spacers on the camber link on tower but it was to aggressive with it was higher grip anyways.


I been running mostly Dirtwebs, Typos on rear and Dirtwebs up Front . Ride height is 23mm/24mm rest is stock accept the slipper clutch .

It's all in the inserts and the front hubs. Go way back somewhere near the beginning of this thread. Back when guys were just getting their cars. Out of the box the car is set up with mild, easy to drive and stable turn in (initial oversteer) I can't remember off hand which insert to change but your answer will be found there.

Ok thanks the stock setup was good on a faster more open layout but now its a technical track with tight turns .
