You definitely cannot mix and match the arms & towers. I originally didn't have the B5-RM tower in my possesion, but installed the flat front arms. Set the ride height, dropped it a few times. As Sean states, the shocks don't travel back upward properly in that scenario. The front end will remain waaaaaaay too low. Thankfully OCRC had the front B5-RM tower I needed, and it's a big difference on the car IMO.

Shorty lipo, 3mm under rear link (low roll center) 3 trailing with 1mm front and rear spacing for front caster block spacing.

I have my B5M on the way and was wondering if there are any parts i should order off the bat becuase it will break or is sub par?
I would not worry.Only thing i have had problems with are the front bearings, all else seems stout but i also dont pile drive walls.

The setups were constantly evolving every round at the Cactus. I believe BT will post the final setup on the AE site this week. I'm not sure what you guys expect to use from the set up unless you are running on a candy track though.

Oh no expectations what so ever especially since 1% of tracks in the usa have that same surface. However my shorty pack setup is close to what Maifield was just running and Im on medium/high bite clay tracks.

In the handful of days I've had the car out to the track to start dialing it in, my setup headed to something really close to what was the "AE Cactus Setup" that NeoBuggy released. This is for OCRC with medium to high bite. That setup should have been the "kit setup" IMO, but everyone has their own needs and feel for vehicles. For now, seems lots of folks are happy around our parts with something close to that.

No issues since I bought it in December. I use a glitch buster as well, though.

What about using the B5 rear arms on the B5M? Are the heights ok with the M tower? The rear shock towers aren't interchangeable....
