I have been running 30 + 0 for about a year now. I just like it better.

Ok I wasn't sure on the kick up I thought that was why but I get confused on that sometimes and the rear I knew that he was lowering the roll center but I just wasn't sure what he was running before bc right now I am running +1 and the two hole hub inserts up and out like what Cav is running.

What is the significance of 0 casters in this case?

Is there an option to do a 25+2.5 instead of 0 or 5?
Or is there a way to fill in the hole on an insert and drill a new hole... accurately?

I know this has probably already been disscused but Is deleting the slipper harder on the gear box and drive axles I understand it works great for forward bite and no lag from the slipper but for a reliability stand point how much harder is it on parts

Think about it for a moment. Something has to give when there's a shock to the drivetrain.

Just got my b5m together out of the box.. do any of you cut out the plastic moldings behind the servo or around the battery strap posts to make more room for the electronics? Im still planning on running the 4 gear
It seems like a tight fit trying to jam an r10 esc plus a receiver into that little space

I have my r10 fitted in their flat with everything. I have the Spektrum ds4r so the receiver is pretty small.

I believe you would have to cast or cnc anything less than 5.
