Ya they are fast but the D3.5 is illegal tho my local tracks wont even let you run them for club races. Idk why Trinity would tell you to get it when they know its illegal theyre just trying to get rid of the ones they have bc no one wants them anymore. I would return it to them and get a D4 bc you may have trouble running the d3.5 at certain tracks and events.

my local track is selling them and they recommended that motor also...so Im thinking Im going to be ok for this track that I plan to race at. Trinity asked if I could run that motor first before they recommended it.

So this new c block will move the arms further apart from each other and then you use the smaller hexes to bring the wheels back in. Will this really make a huge difference over stock on high grip tracks?
what will this improve on the car and what will it take away?

sound like they made this just for carpet track since the worlds is coming up

For club racing, you don't really need to do anything to this car to compete in stock. For a new racer, get your car, drive it on the track until you can keep from crashing for an entire race and can feel where you are slow because of the car. Then tune. Don't feel like money needs to be spent on anything right out of the box other than practice fees and tires.

the kyosho guys do/did this with the RB6 with the narrow and wide hangers. Honestly, I never understood it and sold my RB6 because shit was getting too freaking complicated lol. I am sure time will tell on what works beter and next year AE will release a new car with the then best items, lol. The year it is the Rm arms and light weight chassis and 3 gear...next year who knows. I guess it is good that AE is still working to make the car better across the most surfaces.

just asked my buddy that runs kyosho and this was his input

The narrow setting creates more exit grip.... The wider you go the loser the rear end feels entering and exiting corners

Wide is useful on high bite
Narrow for low bite

Team Associated has new Factory Team aluminium option parts for the B5M, T5M and B44 available. First up is the +4mm aluminium arm mount for the B5M and T5M. The part makes the rear pivot 4mm wider for improved stability. It required flipping the insert in the D plate and is recommended with the use of the second new part, the 5.0mm clamping wheel hexes that reduce the width by 4mm from stock. Combining both parts alters the rear suspension geometry and they come blue anodized to match the remainder of the Factory Team options.

So essentially with the +4 mounts, it moves each arm and hub out 2mm, the 5mm hexes keep the track width the same and the upper link is either made 2mm longer or moved to a different hole to keep the same length. Did I miss anything?

THis doesn't really affect traction, it's geared towards stability. Move arms out and it rides better over open bumpy tracks. Keep at stock location and gives more steering, better for flat, technical tracks.

Now if you keep arms at stock location and use the narrower hex (5mm) this will give more traction over stock. use a wider hex vs. stock hex (7mm) this will take away traction.

Am I the only one who uses Kyosho springs? If not, which do you run? I'm running gold fronts and white or pink rears. It just seems like the Kyosho springs work better. I've found that Kyosho whites are about the same as AE whites. I'm looking for a tool to test spring rates so that I can get a better idea of what I really need. Anybody know of one that I can buy....I don't want to build.
