Medium to medium/high bite medium size indoor clay track
I am! And I still love it. It worked indoors, it's working outdoors. Oddly enough, it's fantastic for me on low bite and rough stuff. I think having the weight centered may be what's helping in the rough stuff. Also, added flex is a big factor in my setup. But inline is definately something to try

I'm sure most of you have heard of VRP (Vision Racing Products) lately. I have been testing a ballast weight chassis for the B5M for them. This is going to be a great tuning option for racers looking for that edge. You can adjust the weight placement on the lowest part of the car.

(Shown only with a few weights, Didnt have all of them when I took the pics)

Anyone have a ETA update on the B5MLites? Looks like GP distributor changed the eta date again from 4/20 back up to 4/13. Hummm can we be getting them in soon?

I'm not sure about all shops, but my local track is getting some in the next day or so.

Questions??

Hi all,

Maybe a silly question but have searched the forums, trawled the internet without an answer. Building a B5M kit and I am assembling the Spur Gear, the kit comes with 81T & 72T gear. It recommends building initially with 81T for mod or 72T for stock.

My question is around the diameter of the internal hole on these gears that enables it to slide onto the top shaft. If you look at the picture below the diameter of the center hole on the 81T is far larger than the diameter of the top shaft. Is this by design or am I missing a spacer somewhere?

One thought is that the centrifugal force may ensure the gear centers itself but I dont believe this to be true and it means you have to be very accurate in hoping it is center whilst tightening the slipper lock nut.

My first kit build in 10 years and we didnt use slipper clutches in my day :-).

Hi,

Looking at the photo you got the wrong 81t spur in the kit.
(It's a really old style of spur that you have there.)

You need a 81t spur that looks the same as the 72t that you have, having the mouldings to hold the slipper pads.

Here's the part number for the 81t:
Part #: 9651
81 tooth 48 pitch Spur Gear
