I don't think ill ever run anything but this type ever again. So much easier to work with and seem to stay more consistent as well.

Over the last few pages, thanks guys on the 2.4 rim diameter discussions, I appreciate it. Since the B5M Factory Lite has no rims and tires in the kit, I was looking at a lot of wheels 2.4 size in the for sale forum but will stick with the 2.2 rims and tires for now.

Better have it and not need it, than need it and not have it. U can get a low turn motor and turn it down, time it down or adjust your throttle. I run a tekin redline gen2 7.5 and it fast. Some others have down to a 4turn and gear it and or turn it down... It all depends how much u ride the throttle.

Why would you run a 6.5. No wonder your having handling issues. a 10.5 is fine for most tracks.

Hi all, I want to install the aluminium shock mounts in my B5M.

Could someone tell me which reference is the correct one for the B5M? Is it 91446 or 91533?

Thank you in advance!

Go with the Schelle or the Avid's - they're much better quality bushings than the AE ones.

Thank you! The problem is that where I live I don't have access to avid or scheme and it doesn't make sense to order abroad for this small thing. But thank you again! I will keep it in mind for a future order.

In the meanwhile if someone has knows the rigth reference from AE, I would appreciate it.

Thanks!
