thanks for the info.

Do you feel you will try softer tires to get it to hook up more, more toe in, etc? Basically, do you feel you can with tuning get the rear end planted.

i already run black jc tires sauced. might get better with toe but i run 17.5 and it would kill it even more.

i got it the end of february and have been tuning ever since my speedo is moved back also.

thanks for the heads up.

At your track for those running B5s I take it its rear motor?

Also, what toe settings are available for the B5M and what are you running at this time?

Thanks for the info. Hope you can get sorted.

yes most are b5/b4.2, the other couple b5m's aren't any better than mine.
current toe block is 3/1 also comes with 2.5/2 and 3/2

For the most part our track seems on the cusp of RM vs MM but seems the quicker lap times are leaning toward the RM car. It changes so much as it dries out so it's a hard place to nail down a good tire. When CJ Greaves was in a few weeks back I think he switched to his RM with suburbs and put down fastest lap over his MM? I know you were sitting with him so I don't recall specifically.

Yeah that dudes something else, he felt his rm would be faster, dropped it on the track for the first time with clay tires for round 1, with no practice with it. Still don't know how he drove it on clay tires, i tried it last night and it was like an ice rink with my mm.

during the top notch race when it was heavily watered and swept every 2 round my mm was pretty good, but for regular club racing it has been a handful

Have you tried the rear motor rear arms reversed? A few have mentioned it to get rear traction.
