Has anyone weighed their B5M to find the weigh distribution front/back? I don't have the car myself, but was wondering how it compares to the B5 and other mid motor cars.

There is way too many variables to answer that question accurately.
The car can be any where from 62-64% rear bias. 63% is probably normal average.

Look at the B5m FL instruction manual.

Can the Schelle d-mount be used with the +4 c-mount?

Unfortunately it cannot since it does not support the +4mm position.

It's very adjustable! Just with electronics and battery positions you can change it at least 5%. Even more with aluminum or brass parts, and with just weight. Full size or low-profile servo. Shorty, saddle, or square battery. Even clay tires way much more than super-softs. So it really depends. I'd say it can be anywhere from 57 to 67 percent on the rear with minor adjustments.

Different pitch to the tooth.

Never seen front forks that weren't chrome. Those should wear a lot more than RC shocks.

There's a few different flavors. (You're looking at the fork lowers/the uppers are Kashima coated)
