How much lighter is the "lite" chassis compared to the original B5M chassis?

Tower is the distributor amain byes from.....of course they can be cheaper. A main sells parts for retail in case you haven't noticed. That being said...I own a retail business so I applaud them for making some money based off rep. Just because you buy online doesn't mean your getting a deal people. Buy local..unless they are idiots they will take the sale even at slim margin.

Quote:
New from JConcepts come wing shims for the Team Associated B5 and B5M. The buggy offers the option of adjusting the wing angle by changing the direction of the shim or the height by running the shim below or above the wing. JConcepts is now offering the wing shim as a machined aluminium component, available anodized in blue or black colours. The edges are finished with a small highlight chamfer where possible to provide that all important glamorous look. The shim is light-weight and has built in screw bosses on each side which allows the driver to completely secure the shim to the wing with 3mm screws (not included) front and back. The shim has a built in rake of 3 degrees in one direction and shaped to fit around the stock plastic wing mounts or part of the JConcepts screw-down aluminium wing mount system. Utilizing the shim in one direction gives the wing zero degrees or in the opposite direction gives 6 degrees of angle. Placing the shim on top will angle the wing at 3 degrees. Simply drop the new shim onto the wing mounts for a more rigid assembly and secure if preferred with 3mm screws.

Anywhere from 7.5 to 10.5 depending on you and your track, but 8.5 is probably the most common

I started out with a 7.5 on an indoor carpet track. Halfway thru the winter, we were told that 13.5 would be max. Had to pull the 7.5 for a 13.5 that was ridden hard and put away wet. That season is now over so back goes the 7.5. It's too much if you ask me. A 10.5 would be perfect.

Maybe try:
Battery forward.
Caster to 5
Kickup to 25
Front trail 3mm
Remove washers from steering rack.
Lower ballstud on front tower
Mid arms and tower

These seem to get me to having too much steering on our indoor clay track. When traction comes up i just move these settings the opposite way to stabilize it.
