Cool, just checking so you don't waste time. The 56, according to the chart, will have a low speed feel about between the 1.6 and 1.7 pistons and is something I would like to try on my car. In a pinch, you can also glue one hole shut on the 54 piston and make a 3 x 1.4 piston out of it.

basically what im trying to say is do the washers go there? im guessing they dont. i would guess they go between the cranks since they cam with them...previously someone said they go between the bearings in the rack. so maybe i just didnt understand or read wrong.

With the alum cranks this can make the screws get loose and fall out. So in order to snug the rack onto the alum cranks, a crush tube is used to allow a tighter screw and not bind on the bearings.
corrected

Losi 55 piston is what the KYO guys are running. 4x1.3. 55 drill bit = approx 1.3.

Tebo setup (before he went crazy with 1.5x2 for Reedy)

Just got done testing the inline setup. Seems to be working good. They didn't have the lap timers on today so won't know till Friday races. The car enter and exits the corners way better. Also more move ability in the air. Still getting used to it.

Thanks again Wild Cherry

Yeah, 1.32mm. I was just making sure George knew how much more hole area he was going to try - from the oil he was planning to try, it didn't look like it given the chassis slap the B5M seems to have. Nothing wrong with trying things of course, at least not in my opinion.

And I think I'll give them a try too - I have a ton of them.

losi pistons are thicker then ae, so they hold between the clips without shimming better.

Odd question? Does anyone know exactly how wide the clamp on front and rear hexes are? I have a bunch of misc. ones kicking around and am curious if any of them work for this car. Thanks
