You're right, it has been mentioned about 11234543 times in this thread...and probably another 11234543 times in the B5 thread as well.

I agree, but I like the idea of having aluminum back there for suspension mounts. And once the regular top shaft goes back in it will pretty much be setup like my mod car is with the exception of the V2 slipper on the stock car, and the Nova going on the mod buggy today for racing tomorrow.

Only mid-motor car I ever ran that had plushness with little to no anti-squat was the Hobby Pro PR S1. Was a tank too, but could run 3/0 and no chassis slap.

Default Shock Set Up Tip

Measure the shocks stroke length.

Front = 20mm

Rear = 26.5mm

With the shock eyes screwed on all the way .

Front = 18mm
Rear = 24mm

Adjust to the correct length .
Will gain more grip & improved landings ..

New front set up

Hard front B5r arm
B5m tower
Shock
1.4x3 flat piston,35w, green spring, 4 mm internal limiter, 18mm shock travel
Shock position = inside on tower & outside on arm.


Personally really impress with this set up.
Car gains a lot stability on the turns, finish's the turn on exit really good.

Highly recommend to try....

I have two questions:
1. How often do you guys change your Schelle slipper pads on the b5m
2. Are getting new front tires done as often as the rears?

Ordered the mid motor conversion. Tired of getting beat in the corners on a high grip indoor track with the B5RM. Hopefully the difference is substantial.

Does anyone know if the diff rings that come with the MIP puck system are the same size as the AE stock rings?

The B5 versions of pucks dont include a gear or rings.
