Look at the diagram again and make sure all rings and black spacers are in correct order and use some green slime on the x-rings if you have it.

Hi, the order of the plastic black spacers & the seal\rings are the same to the standard diagram with the red standard seal\rings....

The low friction rings are too small (external diameter) & and too big (internal diameter) for sealing the shock cartdridge...

When i make the shock for 0 rebound (in compression moment) the seal\ring cartdridge aspirate a lot of air, and in expansion moment the seal\rings not sealing the internal Oil....



HELP ME!!

I upgraded my front last week to the x-rings. I dont have any leaking that is note worthy. I just used green slime on the rings and assembled the shocks. Nothing really special about it. Did you use the AE rings?

Sounds like someone didn't put their shocks together correctly, or very well. The X-rings are very good. Take your time building, make sure everything is facing the correct way, and coat in oil / green slime during assembly. My shocks don't weep at all with X-rings.

something is wrong. Either assembled wrong or the orings were cut but the treads on the shafts. But its no normal.

Little help, I want to try out the 3mm trailing I read that that will help with more mid to exit steering, is that correct? Anyhow can I just change inserts or will switching from the 4mm to 3mm trailing insterts require me to shim anywhere else. Sorry if this is a dumb question Im just trying to figure this out. Thanks

I found that 3mm trailing gives all around more steering. As per the manual, the required changes for the 3mm trailing are the inserts, centered front hubs, and 1mm Ackerman spacing.

Agreed. I put the X-Rings in my shocks in March and they haven't leaked a bit.

Default B5m Droop Screws?

Hi everyone. I'm new to this site but not rc.

Anyway, I picked up a new B5m last week and spent some time reading through this entire thread. A LOT of great info here!

Long story short, one of the tracks I run on is a small carpet track with only small jumps. So I was looking for a way to test different amounts of droop as we only get about a foot of air. So this is what I came up with. Hopefully others will find it useful!

If you are using the inside ballstud position for the inner camber link, you can install a screw (or grub screw) in the outer hole from the bottom. With the ballcup resting on the tip of the screw you now have the ability to adjust droop!

At the very least you can use this for testing droop settings before committing to tearing down your shocks to add limiters.

I took a couple pictures so you can see what I mean. Hopefully it'll let me attach them, being a new member...

Soak the X rings in oil for a couple of days. This should help them swell up. Its what I was told to do and it worked great.
