I hadn't noticed you suggested AVID. I like the ones from Casper because he's a small company and is on here all the time answering questions. That's all. Seems like a nice guy.

I got a chance to take some photos of WC's B5M and the individual parts he modified. Pretty interesting stuff, I haven't tried it on my car but I wanted to share the photos.

VERY clean looking too. I very much dislike the stock setup but that looks very, very nice. I might have to try that out.

Has anyone compared the weight bias between the inline vs. stock configuration?

I think he means the weight over the wheels not the total weight.

Forgive the ignorance, I don't have my M yet, but what am I looking at as far as what he modified?

Is anyone having luck using the old b4 twin plate slipper? Is there a disadvantage in stock to using the new heavier multi-plate slippers?

For stock racing, it is recommended that you run the slipper eliminator. Not only do you save weight, but it is rotating weight, which is huge in stock. It will not make the car drive poorly, you may have to ease on the throttle but you will get more acceleration. From my experience, I ran the stock slipper, then the V2 system, then the Exotek eliminator, and the Exotek works the best.

The other option is to run the V2 slipper system. It is a two pad system works better than the stock one for stock. You may use the stock three pad slipper, however you lose power as well as you have extra weight.

Hope this helps

Correct!

Just curious how much the weight bias changes...

Inline shown on my ride has more forward weight ..

Think everyone should now consider they can change the chassis flex for inline or lateral..

The mod shows its easy to do .

Already done. Not from Fastenal but a better and more fair priced fastener place. I ordered all stainless steel screws except for the ones that go through the bottom of the chassis (won't see them / chassis protector). They didn't have 22mm for the lower front arms. However, I sourced 22mm titanium screws for a fair price, and they fit both the lower front arms and are still long enough (and strong enough) to use on the shock tower mounting locations.

I have a few extra complete sets for now, and can acquire more if these go pretty fast. Had been meaning to post sets for sale, but been busy and distracted and forgot.

PM me if truly interested. I have them on hand and can package and send immediately. I will tally up a low but fair price I can sell a complete set for.

Thanks,
Jesse
