You brag about how many kits and parts your shop gets and then get impatient after they sell out. I don't get it???

when the kits arrived they all sold quickly.Last kit was saved for me but I let it go because I still did not have the money due to having to give uncle Sam all my bucks instead.

Thought no big , more kits would arrive shortly..
Owell....
BTW
Never braged about anything, just bet Bill Trcr would get plenty of kits after he claimed incorrectly we would only get a small shipment of.

Even if my kit arrives , will not build it unless all the parts are also available for me to complete the kit.

parts I still need to build are the inserts & rear motor front tower(hard).I have already purchased most of the other extra parts .

Sell B4.2 and then convert the money over to a new B5

Not going to build a kit because you don't have a shock tower. How funny. That's almost as funny as all the input you have for a car you don't even have.
I did like the wild on wild action.

I swapped rear arms off my B5M for part # 91412 rather than the factory 91528 and my car gained a tremendous amount of forward bite and side bite seemed to stay the same. If you do this i would suggest having something in your bag of tricks that will help you get some steering back because my car lost a little. I simply moved the battery forward and it had its steering back.

My first build. Gearing is 32/72. This is my starting point and looking forward to mods and tuning. The b5m youtube series by "CJ with Comprcc.com" was a huge help since this was my first kit and I don't know anyone who is into rc. The discussions in this forum helped too, I've read every page.

Why not build a kit right the first time?

My car still had plenty of steering after getting the rear end all squared sway (including using the B5-R rear arms). I had been resistant to say anything yet, but I actually put my gullwing arms and tower back on the vehicle (again, rear end is dialed in) and the car was still as good, possibly better. So I'll be doing some more testing now again with the gullwings.

I'd suggest leaving your battery still as far back as possible and improve the steering via another method. Try front dirt web tires if you have not. They are more aggressive.

Are the set screws for front and rear hubs really not included with the kit?

Thanks for the feedback
