Any of guys running the Front wing lowered on this buggy ? I tried it on my mod buggy and only difference I noticed was the steering was smoother nothing else but it just collected hunks of clay if you flip over though so I took it off.

I tried out the front wing behind the tower and noticed a lot of difference especially the big sweeper turns and turn in but felt like a dog on the straights though for some reason.

Hey guys wondering if anyone has either laydown conversions for your b5m. A few guys recently got the new b6 and are running away from the rest of us. Ive read that the shapeway one really helps bring the b5ms back up to speed but not sure if i should go that route or just pony up and get the b6.

I have the wwhd tranny in my b5m but i know some that have the shapeways laydown in their car and are doing well with it. the b5m is still a competitive car.

So for a laydown tranny in this buggy I heard the Yokomo 3 gear one works in this buggy ? Do all the B5M tranny bearings and diff, slipper fit and whats the mods you need to do to fit it on the chassis ?

Default Help me love this car again!

I have a b5m factory lite, and because I think it's probably best while I am still learning to be a good driver, I am inclined to wait for the next generation of cars to come out.
I am wondering what you think I should do to help me stick with this car longer and feel good about it.


- LCG conversion (interested to hear a response to the previous post about the yz-2 tranny. OR what the most economical conversion is)

- Everything is stock and my arms and joints have some play. How do you take this out? Do I need to?

- Upgrade my radio from an entry level Sanwa Mx-v to something I can grow with like an MT-4 or MT-4s?


Other ideas? I am sure there are others in the same boat that would like to hold out for the next upgrade. What are your secrets? (even mind games could work )

Okay thank you! So the left half, right half, the battery brace, and a B6 lay down motor mount. Any other parts or modifications need to be done? Do you use the same gears, bearings and out drives fro the stock set up? Any spacers, shims, etc needed?

All the stock parts work in it, it bolts right in, I drilled two holes in the chassis for the front of the trans, but I've known guys that don't.

The 4 rear holes, there's 2 more in the front, you don't use the water fall, there's pictures in the link above.
