I put the AE aluminum screw kit on and used stainless everywhere else. Haven't had any problems yet. They're cheap at the hardware store.

Finally got my kit on order so I can do a direct comparison of the AE B5M and the TLR 22 2.0. I am stoked, do you guys think I should leave my 22 the way it is which is close to stock but has a few things. Or do you think I should put it back to bone stock to do a comparison of them stock. I'm not sure if that will be a very fair comparison but this is what is done to it either way:

TLR 22 2.0-
Stock springs front and rear
30wt up front 27 wt in rear
20 grams on top of transmission, 10 grams under motor( meant to simulate the rocket rc parts)
waterfall removed, battery up against motor
electronics mounted in front of battery on chassis (r10 pro, airtronics rx)
aluminum camber block front and rear
Exotek rack
Lunsford titanium turnbuckles

Or should I bring the b5m up closer to those standards and leave the 22 2.0 alone? Possibly Lunsford turnbuckles, aluminum topshaft if I can manage getting my hands on it etc.

Both would be with shorty of course, but I plan on also testing both with saddles.

I have not had good luck using aluminum in high stress areas or areas that you are going to be taking the screw in and out a lot, especially under a chassis. Just something to consider.

I would leave your Losi as is, I tried the 22 2.0 before getting my b5m and right out of the box my associated car was superior. Even with the rocket rc parts and titanium turnbuckles on the Losi I like the way the b5m is stock better. With the same upgrades added the b5m it will only get better.

What would you use the shorter aluminum shock posts for? AEs site shows both the standard and short variations of the aluminum shock posts for the B5M.

normally short is used in the rear and long used in the front. but on the b5m i believe the idea is to use long front and rear.

these are parts for other cars too, im sure a t5, sc10-5, b54 are all in the pipeline lol.

finally got around to building it... just need to settle on the electronics layout, glue some front tires and get some paint done. I think I want to wait for the new Proline bodies though. RM car is just about done too....
