Yeah a lot of people tell me this also. I'm one of the few with a b5m in the stock class at our track.

This makes no sense to me. Stock is all about momentum and corner speed. Thats what MM is built for. RM is more point and shoot. You need motor to be able to start from a dead stop every turn. Of course that is an over generalization but you get the point.

DG.... you are right on... although some of these guys are obsessed with the weight of the car and it has to be as light as possible and that's the only way they can be fast.. but you are right.. corner speed and momentum are huge....
I know people will disagree with me, but I don't care how light a car is , if you cant drive it fast the whole time your still not going to win.

yes the rear motor is lighter, but with a good setup the mid motor is faster because of what you said.. corner speed and momentum.

I would also like to know what exactly people did besides tapping out the hinge pin holes in order to run the b5 rear arms.

I have a question, where do the 2 silver washers go for the aluminum steering arms? Thank you in advance.

They go between the bearings in the composite portion of the steering rack. I installed my bottom bearings first, placed the crush washers in, then installed the upper bearings. Then you can use a little bit of blue loctite on the screws and carefully snug the rack to the aluminum steering arms. I have to say mine is the smoothest bellcrank I think I have ever assembled, it has zero slop and is tight but free also. Very good tolerances.

I took the back case off and relocated the wires to come out the back

Not sure what your talking about. I didn't tap anything. Just put the right are on the left side. I did shave the chassi down just to make sure the arms didn't hit since I spaced them foward 1mm
