I don't know what C&D mounts is though.

They are both the rear arm mounts. You will need to order the inserts also.

What would you guys get for a B5M for $20 or $50? I have some spare front arms already but that's about it.

I'm running a 13.5 motor.

Racing on a pretty tight carpet track with pin tires so super high grip and I already have the stuff below installed.

Gear diff
3 gear tranny
Aluminum rear hubs
Aluminum hexes
Ti turnbuckles
Ti front axles
Sway bar kit
Red front springs
Blue rear springs
Aluminum steering set
Rear Camber Block

I just pieced a 3-gear transmission together this week. You will need:

3-gear case
3-gear motor plate
3-gear spur cover
3-gear top shaft
(2x) 5x10x4 bearings. The 3 gear aluminum top shaft rides on smaller bearings compared to the 4 gear transmission which uses 6x12x4 .
(2x) diff shims (#1733). The B5M Lite manual lists 2 diff shims and they are correct because when I installed the diff in the three gear transmission case there was a lot of lateral movement between the diff and cases. The shims eliminated most of that play.

I have been running them without issue. they definitely make everything more free and smoother. I run on high bite and have had the same set in for months.

I think shimming is a tolerance thing. I didnt have to shim mine, but other have. I had to shim my 4 gear, but with the same diff, I didnt have to shim the 3 gear /weird

Thanks. I meant where did you get yours from. Like do people have a preference for someone's cut gears. A google search only showed CB's cut gears. I don't know if anyone else out there makes them.

cb's are the main one. the guy that does it is local to me. u can do it yourself if u feel like you can. lay the gear flat on sandpaper and go to town, belt sander helps alot
