well maybe the $70 MM to RM conversion is for you . Then sell your MM parts to someone wanting to go RM from MM

Put the B5 Rear Arms on your B5M reversed... Left on Right/Right on Left

Moves Rear axle forward a bit = more rear traction.

Who else has tried this? How does it work and how does it change the handling?

might be a stoopid question but can you go from b4.2 to B5m with the conversion?

I think it will just make it push more unless your on high bite. I also don't think it will help enough,it's just not that close. I mean I'm trying to get it to go as fast as a b4.2.

The B5-R rear arms flipped/reversed on the B5m trickled out from the AE team drivers a couple weeks back (go back in this thread, I know Mr.Trimmings and I certainly brought it up). A lot of folks made the switch, and I've heard nothing but positive statements from everyone that's done it... Including myself. Added rear bite and stability for me.

Also, the B5Nation Facebook group created by Jason from JConcepts seems to consistently be having the latest tuning tips and info compared to here, so you might want to check that out as well.

Yes I read that a couple of weeks ago. You race on high bite,if you need more grip use a softer tire,I am already using mega soft and it's a long ways off. I have driven the car on high bite clay,it's a different animal on a loose track.

Just trying to help. 1 of my tracks is high bite, the other is medium+.

Quick tip for anyone using the 3x8mm set screws in the front caster blocks (which eliminates most of the slop): those little screws strip VERY easily so don't over-tighten and back them out very carefully. If they strip you'll never get that caster block off the hinge pin in one piece. You'll be hacking away at it with the Dremel like I just did.
