Same as avid setup
Just the schelle comes with the spring adapter to fit over shaft on b5 so you need to use the stock slipper spring setup.

Default B5M setup

Hey guys, one of the best Pacific NW driver's setup sheet for his B5M here.
There's actually 2 setups on there to try

The VTS always seemed fine to me. I've never tried the Avid / Schelle. What makes it better exactly? I run mod.

It was originally released before the VTS so many got it, I stay with it because, say it with me, it's lighter. And in MY OPINION(!) more consistent.

Yeah I never grabbed the old Avid slipper setup for my B4.1 (running stock at the time). I was running my B44.2 a lot which had the VTS when it was brand new from AE, and it was way more consistent and easier to set than the old style slipper on on my old B44.1 , so I was happy.

Just bought a bunch of other new goodies for my B5m, so I'll have to yet wait again to try the Schelle slipper setup.

Luke Smith is a monster... if you have a similar surface to TRCR, this is the guy to follow

Most good indoor clay setups I've seen have been pretty similar, with very slight tweaks in oil / spring / roll centers
Team Associated RC10 B5m Mid-Motor Thread

Seems a lot are gravitating towards 3 x 1.4mm front pistons, and oils are getting lighter. Also the inside rear shock tower hole on the rear seems to be a popular option.

+1, the guys around here are running box stock set-up and loving it!

Is anyone adding weight? I noticed on the Yokomo thread, they are adding 11g to the nose when in mid motor. They also seem to like the gear diff.

I kinda hated the box setup. IMO the rear end was too loose (again, indoor clay). A few small changes really got the car more locked in.

as of late how dare you mention adding weight lol, im jk but alot of peers on here are doing everything in their power to shed weight. Car comes in at roughly 1550 gr. which in my opinion is pretty good. If i need a lil more steering or rear bite i will transfer a weight stack to either fron or rear and it seems to help. I run mod though, stock driver would probably frown on this tuning option.

I run mod also. 8.5turn feels great in this car on my track. Still curious about gear diff also. One guy with a Centro runs one and his car is always locked in.
