I have both the B5M and the B5M Lite.

When I went to the three gear transmission, the car came alive for me. I was always looking for a bit more steering and I seem to have found that with the three gear. Might be personal driving style. I do a lot of on-road pancar, so I think the chassis runs flatter with the three gear and adds some of those steering characteristics. Keep in mind, this is stock racing. It's been suggested to me that I might like the four gear better with hotter motors. However, a 10.5 on carpet was stunningly good.

Not sure I would view the two transmission options as good or bad, better or worse, but as a tuning option.

Yes the mounts are in the way of the wirers but this servo will still work. I have used it but went back to the 6040 just because the larger servo gave it more steering. (added weight to the front). A liter car is not always a faster car!

I could not disagree anymore. I run on a medium to low bite outdoor track that develops a layer of dust. In modified I couldn't be happier with the rear grip and the on power steering of the 3 gear. Both the MIP 3 gear and the plastic setup do a tremendous job of "freeing" the car up.

Depends what you consider medium. I am sure what you would call a low-medium grip track in AZ. To us up here in Canada would be med - hIgh.

I tried the 3 gear here and hated it. Indoors worked well. Outdoors unless its a sugar track with really high grip I wouldn't use it. But that is my preference.

3 gear is superior in every way.....set your car up for the traction...that's why we have such tunable suspension...

If you're accelerating too hard and getting wheel spin, gear taller or use the slipper (that's what they designed them for)

How do the shock limiters effect the cars handling? Im running 2 limiters front and back. By going down to one in the front, will that give me more traction in the rear?

All three of those statements are misleading.

The four gear transmission has it's place depending on conditions - it's a tuning option, just like tuning the various components of your suspension.

One uses throttle to control wheel spin. Gearing is typically determined by the balance of infield (corner speed) and straight line speed. Motor temps I suppose as well.

The slipper was never intended as a traction tuning device in and of itself. The slipper is there to protect the transmission gears and ball diff, during landings.

What kind of tires and caster angle? Did you change anything else at the same time?

Anyone have the part numbers for the correct Ball stud and spacers to run the alumium rear hubs?

Same tires and shocks found out the servo was a millimeter too far forward and was barely rubbing the link.

Holy crap. The mount must have been super cramped

Default B5M traction problems

Can't seem to get any rear bite car no matter what seems loose in the corners and on the straight running on packed clay but likes to get dusty and slick instantly
