Most guys who use them are running on super high bite, Astro turf or carpet tracks. Some might use them on really high bite clay tracks but most don't.

Ok i have a b5m on the way , without going through the whole thread it seams many are using the rear motor front arms and tower and rear arms . Is this correct ? Are these the main mods that people are doing to get there b5m to work better . I will need to order the parts and would like to do it in one go . Anything else i should consider ? Is a full size servo ok ? I will be using the hobbywing 3.1 stock esc

All of the above, and front axles, hexes, aluminum rear hubs. You'll have to research the servo I dont like the way my low profile servo fits on the mounts or the very close tolerance of the horn linkage with the servo body

Full size servo works fine, have a spektrum 6040 in one and a savox 1258 in another. Hobbywing 3.1 fits perfect too as long as you have a small enough receiver.

I went to install my shock bushings tonight and saw that I had purchased the "short" B5M Factory Team bushings.....they look too short, how or in what circumstances are they to be used? My B5 has the standard length FT bushings, why two sizes?? Do you just use them on the rear shocks?
