You can use the existing steel top shaft with the new V2 case, but you would need to use a 6x10x4mm bearing - they aren't a common size but there are a few companies that make them out there.

6x10(31404) is a common size for 8th scale off-road cars' steering post bearings I think...if that's the size needed.

This V2 case(91522), is this to be able to use the 3-gear aluminum top shaft?

This is so you can use the same top shaft when transitioning between the 3 and 4 gear. The newer cases also seem to mesh the gears together a little bit better.

Ah, ok. Nice. After I tried the 3-gear this weekend I was looking and wondering what do I do with this nice aluminum shaft now. LOL.

What is holding the motor wires together in the center? Is it just a piece of shrink tubing? I am working on installing the wiring on my new B5M and like how the wires are held together.

I have a couple b5 lite clones but I wonder how the real car is out of the box. Anybody have one yet? I'm curious. Its hard to keep up with this thread. I mention that in case I missed something.

Yes shrink tube

I used some 1/2" heat shrink for mine.

As far as I know it hasn't shipped yet.

I'm trying to catch up on this thread and noticed a couple pages back that people were saying their X rings leaked? I find that hard to believe unless somebody really did something wrong. They might be one of AEs greatest achievements with the new 5 series cars.

Hi Guys.. I'm curious how long the Pucks usually last? I picked up a used B5M setup for 17.5, and don't think I ran it more then 5-6 practice runs before they were wore out, actually worn a little to far and started to wear on the out-drives. I ordered replacement pucks along with replacement out-drives I was lazy, decided not to replace the out drives just yet, and only replaced the pucks... they lasted maybe 3 practice/batteries. So, I'm assuming the out-drives are done and I'll replace them.. but going forward how long should I expect the pucks to last? Seems to me the molded plastic is pretty soft and led me to wonder if anyone makes them in a stronger material? Anyone know if anyone has tried to 3D print them yet?

Thanks,
Robbie

Make sure to apply black grease, also if your bearings on the axles have any slop in/out or up/down it will make them wear faster.

I get 30-35 packs or 2 weeks out of a set of pucks. I use mobile one synthetic bearing grease on mine. All it takes is being lazy once to wipe a set out.
