Looking through the kit I'm really impressed. There are some small things that make a big difference (to me). For example, they give you an older style FT 2 plate slipper and a 69 spur. It also comes with white/white springs and 32.5 oil which should be perfect. They really made it so that you could run it out of the box.
Did it come with new oil bottle?

Yes, new bottle. As a matter of fact it has a flip top like a Losi bottle and it also says 388 CST on it. I didn't think much about it.

Not sure if this has been mentioned before but Associated has released new shorter outdrives for the gear diff. About 1.5mm.

This was to eliminate the out drive cutting through the CVA bones at high compression.

It's the same as the b4.

I've got a full ball diff, still in the original plastic bags, from my T5M kit since I went with a gear diff from the start. You can have it.

I'll take it all with me to the track Sunday or you can PM me if you need them sooner to be ready for the race this weekend. I don't recognize your user name but I always set up my pit table across the track from the drivers stand and I run the three cars that are orange on top and blue on the bottom.

Assuming you race indoors with us rather than at Wildflower. I only live 10 minutes from either track so just let me know.

7677 is the correct kit. I just rebuilt one last week with it. The diff balls 6581 are a separate part number as well as the diff gear itself 91419.



manuals, manuals, manuals.

Just looked through the manual and the kit does not include wheels. I'm sorry that you got jacked on all the other stuff. I guess that's the price of buying one of the first kits.

2 left hubs, no front axles or top shaft in my kit....thankfully my LHS is the shizz and gave me all the parts that were missing from the kit...got her finished last night at the track. I'm pretty impressed with the car....jumps and turns amazing. It's a little chunky at 1570 grams race ready. My Schumacher TF2 with the carbon chassis weights in at 1515.

How do you have it built out? For electronics?

1570 is not that bad. Are you using pucks or running mod? the tires you run can greatly change your weight. 2.4 vs 2.2 wheels. ss vs clay and so on.

No it's not bad...I went through my Schumacher and put her on a serious diet. There's a few things I can slim down on. Gonna be racing stock so I want to get it down to min weight. I have a lightweight VTS2 17.5 I can drop in that'll drop me 20 grams. I haven't even started looking at wheel/tire weights yet. I'm running proline prime MC's on JC 2.2" wheels

I run on a really high bite carpet track....so much bite I have to run -2 to -3 rear camber to stop the traction rolls lol

I have a sneaking suspicion I have one of these cars coming to me in the next few days, the standard B5M not the factory lite. Should I get my hands on one can you guys recommend some out of the gate things to do to improve performance? I run indoor med. traction, smooth.

Setup wise I'm thinking:

VRP X-Ring Pistons (recommended piston sizes would be a huge help)
Tekin RS Gen 2 ESC
Fantom Pro Spec 17.5
Protek 130SS
Pro-Line Electrons F/R
FTW Reactor Body
Exotek Slipper Eliminator
Exotek Top Shaft
Exotek Motor Plate
CB Custom Cut Gears

Am I on the right track?
