He's also super knowledgeable about the B5m (and 44), and is always willing to share his tips/tricks/secrets with everybody else. He's a class act.
My bad. A1 is what I meant to say...it is the second vid of those 2.

Nice close racing otherwise.
Its a topsoil mix, in the winter we run slicks, m4, and worn treads when its warm. Joey "the dirt" did the layout for this race, hence the signature kicker on the right. Its a bit harder than it looks because if you hit some of the bumps in the wrong spot you're easily on your lid.

Thats a great looking layout, and nice track aesthetics to boot. Which car was yours? A bit hard to make them out.

I would give anything for Michael's setup sheet. I only get to the track about once a month where I spend usually a entire Thursday there and occasionally a Saturday day. I have only met Michael once, but man was he consistent. Anyway, because I can only get to the track so often, I can only get so much info that works at TRCR (I used to lean on George). I used to see Dion quite often, but you know he switched brands. Michael clearly has the B5m dialed and it works awesome at TRCR.

Why didn't Schoettler run the Reedy Race or Cactus?

I couldn't make that race, I did the club race a few days later, I was happy that my car was still on pace to have run with the a main guys.

Has anybody run across titanium hinge pins yet? Looked around a bit and never found any.

don't like'em thats why. tight. i'd prefer a ball cup that just fits right the first time. the rpm and jconcepts cups and even the replacement ae cups for the b4 are better IMHO. better fit anyway.

I'd much rather have to squeeze the ballcup with some pliers to loosen then up than to have to pop off one every time I wanted to adjust roll center, camber gain, or even adjust my diff.

AE is updating the cups to be more free. I am told the only way to make sure you get them though, is to order from AE directly, as shops might have old stock

i've never had that issue in the past, doubt i would in the future.
i'd like cup that fit correctly instead of cups that are all goobered up from pliers. i guess i'm in the minority.
