So I just bought a b5m with a carbon fiber x-factory chassis kit

I was just wondering if anyone here has experience with that upgrade and could comment on the benefits and draw backs

I'll be racing stock (17.5) on medium to high bite indoor clay (SDRC)

Also - what is better ? 3 gear or 4 gear tranny?

Associated doesn't make a factory carbon fiber chassis.... Do you X factory

I always run 3x1.4s in the front I think it gives the car a little bit more steering than the 1.6s
Sold on that idea as there is a part of my local track that gotten pretty rutted up from being there for so long. Should I use the offset bushings as well with axles up? Or keep the front hubs middle.

The mount itself is 3. Shim with hole in front is 0 and shim with hole in back is 6

Ok cool. I just wanted to make sure. So what spacer or what do others use to take up the slop as if the shim wasn't there?

I started converting a rear to a mid last night, opposite of you, but I am using the online B5M manual and going through the steps as if I were building a mid motor.

For some reason I was thinking the wing needed to stay at the same height. LOL. I'll just keep quiet in my corner now.
