Same design but the 91533 (shorter) is used on the rear of the B5M and the 91446 (longer) is used on the front. On the B5, the 91446 is used front and rear. You also have to get the 91447 bushings for the mounts.

That seems a little bit odd since both cars you the same plastic mount/bushing.

I originally bought the shock pump for my Tamiya TRF sedan shocks, but it works well with any offroad shock.



I was skeptical at first, but it does work, and I look at it like shock pliers...not necessary, but nice to have.
I have the same tool, which I highly recommend. Put shocks in, pump, get a doughnut, coffee, hit the head, pop lid, build shocks no bubbles - ...

hey pumpkinfish..

on your setup its hard to say as tracks around country even though yours is hardpack its a different surface then what ryan ran on at cactus.. and I am sure your driving styles are not the same either.

what are your jumps like? big ? small? is track smooth or bumpy hard pack? all make a difference.

go back to a 1.6 pistion front and back, 35 wt front, 32 back with whites all around, arms level front and bones level back. use the 30 deg. block instead of the 25 with the 0 inserts.. here are the tricks.. take the 2mm spacer out from behind the front hub and replace with 1mm spacers on each side of hub, this puts more weight over front of car and will provide more steering. run battery in middle, use a 81 spur and go to outside hole on tower in back with hub in mid position. shorten your rear camber one hole in on hub. 1 deg. neg camber front and back with 0 toe. and the 3/1 block..

this should be a good start point

kinda my thought they should both be the same...on tower it says the longer ones are for both though and the short are b5m specific but in the manual they all have the same part and the skinny nut mount

Rickster, our track has one group of triples that are "big" and the rest of the track is smaller jumps. I only used the Cactus setup as that was the only one out when I built thecar. I'll try out your setup this coming week. maybe I canmake changes and get some prctice time before race day. With all the spring sports starting and two kids time is getting short!

hey pumpkinfish...

try the setup and see... that's just a start point.. then let me know what you want the car to do more of less of after you try it and I can help you fine tune it.

Default WING Replacement

New to buggies and need a new wing for my b5m. Looks like I may need a few so wondering if there are wings that hold up better than others.

the losi wing works miracles. They are the most durable and they also come pre-cut.

I moved battery all the way forward and still couldn't turn too well on the 90 degree turns or the 180. Once the track dried out some after the mains the car was feeling better but still had the push. Any ideas on what to start with?
If you want to try a quick change to see if it loosens up your rear, change the anti squat to 1deg. This may be a simple fix to your problem.
