Use just one or two bars ..
Place the wing pad on top of wing for more strength.
Pardon the newbie question but what is the real purpose of that wing pad? Do you put a hole in the wing and run a screw into that piece to hold it on the wing? I'm sure its something really simple that I'm just overlooking

My limited newbie understanding was that it was installed under the wing and provided a place to mount a screw in it to force the wing up in the rear.

Its an angled wing shim to adjust the wing. no shim...3 degrees, with shim...6 degrees and reverse shim...0 degrees. if you use the 3 degree (no shim) then you run the shim on top of the wing.

It's tapered, you can use it to increase the wing angle by placing it under the wing on the wing mounts. Nothing more than that. If you want you can put a hole in the wing and use a screw to attach it to the bottom of the wing so that it doesn't get lost when removing the wing.

The screw is to give the wing a third point of attachment so the wing doesn't move around on the mount. makes it more solid.

Ahhh!! Thanks guys, that make way more sense. I didnt notice it was not flat.

So what mounting position for the stock wing is best to start with? Forward or Rearward?

I put an Al button head screw in mine, didn't think about the angle, could be where some of the high-speed push is coming from in my car.

6 degrees so run forward (screw hole towards the back). This is the baseline setup. To me, trimming the wing lip is more effective.

I added a gear diff to my 13.5 car over the weekend. I'm also running a slipper eliminator. It is very smooth and predictable. Since we run sugared bluegroove there is enough traction for the eliminator, even with a 13.5. The car was smooth as butter with 5k in the diff. I would do the same thing for my 17.5 car(s) if they made pucks for gear diffs like they do for the Kyosho cars. Bottom line is that the gear diff was worth at least a tenth or two in my average lap time, meaning that it did not make my fastest laps faster, rather, it made my lap times more consistent and helped me make less mistakes.

I have to say, working on the B5M is much easier than working on the RB6M. I think that in this case the way AE designed a specific MM design is very apparent. I was able to get the diff swapped in a few minutes. There are a few things that really stand out, small things, like the fact that the tranny uses 4 screws that are all the same.

I'll also add that AE's parts quality has really improved. I definitely can't complain about any of my B5s wearing parts fast. I've done a lot of racing and practice lately and the outdrives on my non-pucks cars are all still near perfect after a couple months.

Never seen someone go faster on clay with a gear diff till now.

My kit should be arriving in a few days thanks to all of your input. Thank you very much for that.

I have a question about build/progress/journal posts. Should i do that in this thread or start a new journal thread? I feel like i should start a new thread but i just wanted to check on the "culture" of this forum.

Thanks again!

Aluminum vs Plastic shock caps. Please discuss. I see that most everyone including the pros use the plastic caps. I found the plastic caps got play in them rather fast and my alum caps have stayed slop free for months.
