Those shocks look good but I am happy with the stock shocks...

Default Different arms for tuning options

Guys, new to B5M.

Need some advice on when to use the different front and rear arms please.

-Front flat arms
-Front gull wing arms
-Rear B5M arms
-Rear B5 arms

Best combination for the following conditions
1. Super high grip like carpet or astro turf
2. High to medium traction on indoor clay
3. Low traction like loose soil

Thanks

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

Default Associated J & A Servo Horns

J & A are 23 tooth. J fits my spektrum 6040 servo but A does not. Anyone know why? Thinking inner diameter of horn must be different.

This is just my opinion....I like the flat front arms better everywhere. To me, they just supplied more linear steering in all conditions. In 17.5 racing, I have not had the need to try the B5 rear arms because I have not lacked for rear traction. I have a set in my pit box that have never been used.

I got called out for not giving too much really useful information, so I'll take a crack at this.


Gullwings - more turn in, more aggressive feel, a little less on power steering. I prefer these everywhere so far - and I used to LOVE the flat arms as they mellow the car out.

B5R rear arms - give an immense amount of rear bite by shortening the wheel base, and allowing you to go I believe 5mm (Don't quote me) shorter than you can with the mid motor rear arms.

After living and breathing (And spending a ton of cash...) I made the move from 17.5 to modified last month.

How Do limiters on the shock shaft front and rear effect the cars handling?

It limits the amount of weight transferred. If you go to far with it the car becomes very darty and hard to drive.
