I haven't heard of any e-clip problems lately but you could try traxass e-clips. We did that before when we were having a problem with them breaking.

Is there an aluminum servo horn that works well with the new steering setup?

thanks for the info Sean. i think the added pressure on the e-clip just caused them to stretch out.

its been nearly 20 years since i seriously tried (i'm awaiting the jokes..) to race 2wd buggy. i gotta say it is a lot of fun. my b5m is more than 1/2 second faster than my b4.2 --- just got to get it to survive the entire night. i was happy to see i could move my shorty pack forward a bit too without massive loss of rear bite.

@ the track

Just got here, putting the hard rear arm & tower now.

I never even started with the kit plastic on the front .
Also the
Hard plastic is proving to be popular with some of my other team mates.
Thus why I'm adding the rear tonight.

On higher traction the Harder plastic car is more consistent & preditable when hammering the corners.

BTW
Only race mod , can't stand slow motors...lol

never tried -- just went w/ the 'suggestions' from rctech
grip has been improving week over week after putting down a new layout 5-6 weeks ago. track is all dirt. http://www.rctech.net/forum/racing-f...ldwick-nj.html

I know a few ppl that are using the TLR alloy servo horn and it fits very nice. They are installed on both the kit bellcranks and the alloy bellcranks works great. I will probably be picking up an extra one to put on mine.

I am 95% certain they are using:

TLR 22 servo horn (I can't post links zzz). [TLR1557]

They just pulled the one off their 22's and used it on the b5m at least that is what I was told. Both previously owned and raced the 22 platform. I can double check tomorrow night at the club race.

I am using the alloy horn that came with the protek 130ss servo and i have to shim the crap out of it cause of a funky angle and have to use the higher hole to keep it from rubbing. The guys that are using the ones from the 22 do not have to shim the servos because the horn is shaped better. Instead of being straight flush with servo it kicks out a little then comes up. Hard to explain.

I just finished building my B5M and I noticed I have about a 1-2 mm gap on the rear arms. Anyone else experienced this?
