Ok guys need some help. First off new the Associated since I've only driven the RB6 prior. Love this car so far. Ran last week for first time felt great, this week the car got harder to drive fast. I run on low to mid traction bumpy hard packed clay/dirt. The tires of choice are gridirons as we speak. Need alittle more forward bite. THe car pushes on entry and has to much steering threw rest of turn. Here is my setup. I'm thinking of trying green springs in the rear and a square pack., also maybe 3.5 deg of toe. Any suggestions?

One change at a time. First try the simple change from 5 deg to 0 deg caster inserts. This will help with entry and exit steering. May even solve most of your forward bite issues.

edit:
May also want to increase rear inner link by 1mm.

Because the B5 rear motor rear arms add and immense amount of traction.

I run green springs all around with 3.5* toe. Ray Munday has an extremely helpful setup guide on PetitRC and his latest B5M setup has been great for me outdoor low/med bumpy tracks.

They should add a tip box to lite instructions: "L arm goes on right of car. R arm goes on left of car. No, we're not kidding."

Default Nub question

I am now building my b5m lite. It's my first buggy i've had. I bought all the aluminum hop ups before hand. I have questions on the c and d arm mount inserts.

What are the numbers on the c inserts? They are things like 3+0, 3+2, 2.0+3L, etc. What do the different numbers mean? What effect does it have on the car. The d inserts only have arrows. I believe the numbers are anti squat?

What would be reccommended to start out? I'm running stock at a indoor high bite clay track.

Thanks

The numbers on the inserts refer to toe and anti squat. I'd start with the kit settings which are 3/1 (3 degrees of toe and 1 of anti squat. The other inserts have arrows.....unless you bought the +4 mount make sure the arrows face inward.

Alright will do. Thanks for the advice. Just curious, what does the "+4" refer too?

My b5m lite rear arms seem to be a tight fit on the hinge pins. Just enough to where the arms don't drop down freely w/o a shock mounted. Should i drill them out a little bit more?

I get confused which is which but AE makes a C mount that is 4mm wider. You need to buy narrower wheel hexes to use it. The idea is that the cars are supposed to be more stable when the arms are moved further out so your making the suspension wider but not affecting the cars width.....did I explain that right?

no, do not drill, rather, lubricate with something silicone or teflon based. WD40.....shock oil....almost anything will work. Please put the drill down and back away from the arms.
