Since it is all keyed, is the b5 screw kit more complete than the b3 screw kit was?

Build went well, electronics packaging was TIGHT! Can't wait to hit the track

I have the TLR22 Lunsford kit, same EXACT length as the stock parts.

Hobbywing V3, with 4 bank caps
Airtronics/Sanwa RX451R reciever, had to mount on its side
Lunsford b4 Shock mounts

How were the shocks compared to the old ones, I always hated the old ones.

Default B5m

Those B5m buggies look so damn tough. Might have to get one to go along with my Centro.

So you're using the 22 lunsford shock mounts? How do they compare in size to the stock 22 shock mounts?

Stock ones are half the cost, and I wouldn't feel so bad if I broke one of 'em.

Oh, ok. Misunderstood your other post.

I bent one pretty bad on my 22, but then again, shock tower is behind the shocks on that buggy.

I think shock mounts will be my first upgrade on my B5r, I loved them on the 22.
