Currently using 3-1 rear arm mounts. What would I gain or lose going to the 3-2 on the B5m? Would 2 anti-squat provide more traction or less? Medium bite track that gets real dry by mains.

I haven't tried it with the B5m but generally more anti squat makes the car more sketchy getting on the throttle initially. It'll also give more on power steering and will transfer weight forward faster.

More anti squat is less side traction and more rear lift on jumps.

Less anti squat more side traction and more rear traction on slippery or lower grip tracks

Your talking about asc91383 right cause that part doesn't say it fits the b5m just the b5.Is that the part I need for the b5m?

For the M you need:

91385
91389
91522
91524
To do the whole rear arm mount swap.

For easy reference go to RC10.com and click on cars&trucks, click b5m, click parts and accessories. That's everything for the M.

Is it pretty rigid just stock out of the box?
suggest the alloy rear arm mounts & rear hub , both offer a huge improvement in strenght. However the alloy rear camber mount bends.Use the plastic version when using alloy rear hub for some give & flex.

Hadn't heard that - so you guys are using the "soft" inner camber mount now?

You can find some using the alloy mount & hubs

Still recommend using plastic because with alloy on both sides there is no flex so the next part to fail will be the camber stud on the hub or the chassis mount itself bends.

Can't even give you a good reason to use it , if it was stronger and did not bend ?

Then it would be usable..

Cameron, none of the alloy parts perform any better then the plastic.

The only reason for using alloy is for extra strength.
