Ok I have a question about aftermarket wheels. I've been shopping for wheels, and on the different hobby shop websites they only show wheels (like proline and jconcepts for example) for the B4.1 and B4.2, but nothing for the B5, am I able to use those wheels or am I stuck using the kit wheels?

I know it sounds like a retarded question, I'm just not sure.....

Or just go tapered 2X1.6 pistons, white springs front and rear, 32.5 front oil, 30, or 27.5 if more rear rotation is needed. New team tested setup via Jake Thayer. All B5 plastic suspension parts minus rest shock tower is used in this stepup. Typos or slicks used for loamy wet clay. If on a loose dirt track, switch to B5.

The B5, B4.1 and B4.2 all share the same wheels.

I can make a better video later that better describes what I'm doing if need be. I'd tried quite a number of things before to free them up, just never spinning the Dremel fast enough to where it starts to melt the plastic. That was the secret as you're basically reforming the cup around the ball, then you can see as it cools down it gets that smooth feel they were looking for when they decided to use this gray ball cup material.

Anybody tried toothpaste to free them up? That's what I usually use to free/hone some of my mechanisms. Works really well and easy to flush clean afterwards.

As soon as they learn the glory is short & time always needed to monitor and update is all they get ?

They disappear in a UTube video somewhere. Lol

I do. You have properly sized Lunsford turnbuckles.
