FLAT front arms & tower
4mm trailing
1mm under the front inner ballstud on tower
32.5 oil / 1.6 piston / AE White spring / middle shock hole on upper tower
24mm ride height
-1 camber

Rear End:
0 or 0.5 hub inserts
0 washers under inner ballstud on "tower" mount
30 oil / 1.6 piston / AE white spring / inside shock hole on upper tower
23.5mm ride height
-1 to -1.5 camber
Standard hub insert position for outer ballstud link

I prefer the car with saddles vs shorty so far. Batteries all the way pushed back.

Good luck
+1 on this setup.

I run a shorty however. With the large pad to the rear. I run on a tight indoor track. I also do not run a washer under the front inner ballstud.

Anyone know of someone or any place that has the 90-100c 155 gram shortys for sale? Wanted to give it a try in my B5M to see if its really a big difference for lap times since my battery is coming in at 212 grams.

Finally got my low profile servo to fit but I just noticed it doesn't center correctly. Like I powered up the servo and I set my controllers trim to 0 then put the servo horn on and I noticed the servo turns to the right farther than the left. What would be the problem? Oh and yes my travel is set to both 100% left and right

Next things I'll be trying one by one are:

30 front / 27.5 rear oils
0 washers under front inner ballstud
3 x 1.4 pistons in the front shocks
Go to outside hole on B rear hub insert
2 degrees anti-squat
B5 rear-motor REAR arms

Got my hands on the aluminum rear ballstud mount yesterday. Now just waiting for the dang rear C & D inserts so I can install those aluminum mounts as well. Got some stainless and titanium screws on their way too

This is the only one that I can find anywhere....I am hesitant to order it though....I would rather wait for the trakpower or promatch to be available.

Oh yeah... all the AE team guys were at OCRC yesterday doing some B5m setup testing, and some other testing I cannot mention. Cav, Hartson, Kody, BT... even Cliff Lett was there for about an hour (not driving). Always good to see those guys out there pushing the limits

so why mention it?

but since you said it, We will start guessing. Here's a small compilation of possibilities:

front sway bar prototypes
rear sway bar options
different front axle set up
different caster blocks/ballstud mount locations
variable arm mount pills like serpent
different center tray mounts relating to electronics mounting options.
