Turned break EPA up to 80%, and went from 1mm to 1.5mm on the front shock tower, dialed. Still needs a little work, but definitely is WAY faster then my Kyosho.

Just a little loose going into the corners, but might just be me over driving it.

Compromise the longevity of what? I'm running mine in mod class with a 7.5 and it's better then my 4 gear normal car was by far

Personally cant think of anything, beyond the chassis that is less than what is a B5M standard and would take consideration. 3 gear isn't necessarily weaker. Just don't crash, chassis will be fine.

Thanks. It's in my 9 year old daughter's car with a Reedy 17.5. She's learning control really well, and is complaining about power when we're practicing outside, but I don't want her to put it into the wall at the carpet track, so I think I'm going to make her stick with this motor.

Hi,

What are people experiences with the 91608 +4mm Arm Mount.

Is it a improvement in all track conditions, or just for high traction tracks.

MiCk B. :-)

What surface? I could imagine something like a 3.5 on carpet or asphalt would be pretty tough on the car.

Alright just got a fat e- cash check from tower. If you guys had to get one spring set each for front and rear, what would you go with? Mostly racing on high- bite clay (critters raceway NJ). Oh and I'm running a 10.5 in the Lite which has white springs.

By sets do you mean pairs? Go Grey then.

Or by sets do you mean the AE sets? Go with the medium sets.

Yes, I meant the AE sets containing three pairs each. Thanks David.

Word to the wise: The AE medium front spring set includes a white spring. The rear set is grey, blue, yellow. You can order the front gray, blue, and yellow springs separately for like three dollars extra total on most sites.

You got that too huh? I spent the better part of my morning trying to decide what to buy with it. It is only $30, but hey, I wasn't expecting it. I was planning on buying FT hubs anyway, this skinned that cat. It was a good time to buy the 3x8mm set screws that I found out are somehow optional in the kit too.

Now I am just sitting here trying to figure out which direction my new hubs go when I am running B5 LCAs on my B5M with the L and R swapped

Have you considered Kyosho XGS springs?

Depends on your conditions but I generally run Gold fronts and White rears....sometimes pink rears.

Yeah when I said "Fat check" it meant about 25 dollars LOL. Just using the funds to expand my tuning options for the newly bought Factory Lite. As for those of you suggesting Kyosho springs, I appreciate the input but unless I'm looking at the wrong springs these are out of my measly 25 dollar budget.

The "0" on the hubs face the shock, left right doesn't matter.
