let us know how it worked out.


Say still keep it , instead go tapered pistons & B5r rear plastic arm.

I found that the added weight was not helpful. Once the car gets to sliding. Which it will. The assed weight tends to make it harder to recover. The car seems to get dragged around by the weight. I didn't make any changes besides ride height adjustments but that's what I found. Take from this what u will.

Here's a pic with the Proline phantom body with a spray bomb paint job I did at the track. Body looks cool and I like the way it worked. Big jumps no prob. Fast sweepers no prob. Body was on point.
No idea y my pic posted upside down. Lol

I just picked up a B5M and a square pack to race Mod buggy. Anything I should be looking at adding to this buggy? I plan on racing mostly stock chassis to get the feel of it. Local on road track is gone so I got to make a transition.

Extra weight brings more grip & stability.

In this case going from a short pack to a saddle will increase the cars weight by about 2 oz .

At first a shorty. Then I went to a square pack. I didn't like the square pack.

Mostly shorty. I was surprised to learn I liked the shorty in it.

What are people finding when running the B5RM rear arms? I have both and geometry looks to be the same.

I have a lot more rear traction with the B5RM rear arms then I do with the B5M rear arms, I found using the the B5RM rear arms when the track is new and once the track breaks in and traction comes up i switch back to the B5M rear arms.

Max traction
and
More scub on the rear shock for improved landings.

Mxracer
Just get both including Hard. Use um as another tuning option in the pit box.



When using the B5r arm you move the arms including the bottom of the shock eyes forward.
This also makes the shocks travel up & down at a steeper angle.

SCUB
The sharper the angle the shock has to travel up & down makes more scub or resistance to movement.
If you have the shock perpendicular or straight up & down ?

Makes the least scub...
or easiest to travel up & down

Not the same as PACK..

* explains why the car lands a little better with the b5r rear arm
