I've never heard anyone claim any difference other than this.

Yes. The red ones are wrong and not designed for use in the B5m/T5m. The clear x-rings #91493 are the correct rings for the AE 12mm V2 shocks.

Thanks for correcting that. The red are 13mm.
Looks like my next car will be the lite for the winter months.

For mod are there any must have parts?
Was thinking JConcepts 4 Ball Stud Mount

RC8B3 for the summer.

Thank You guys.

the car also rotates better with less weight in the rear...at least on high bite indoor clay. 25g out of the rear is noticeable.

that was my observation. I left my setup alone and just put the stock diff and bones in. same tires, same everything. Car pushed like a dump truck. I moved the battery forward a little and played with weight and it is better. I also went from a shorty servo with the pucks to a full servo with the steel diff, which helped. basically, I needed to move some weight forward. I have noticed this a few times when going back and forth. It has been my observation. Did it effect my lap times? No. I just adjusted my driving and car to make it better. again, it was something I noticed over the last year when switching back and forth.

I ended up picking up my B5M Factory Lite today so now I just need to decide on the electronics. I simply do some backyard and club racing so I'm not to worried about regulations. Here is what I'm thinking:

Motor/Esc - Hobbywing Justock 8.5T possibly 10.5 combo
Servo - Savox 1257TG .07 speed/138oz torque
Lipo - 2s SMC 5800mah Square Pack
Tire - Rear Proline bowties or Jconcepts Goosebumps (Loose outdoor track)
Front Not sure
Pinion - Not sure for gearing with the Hobbywing and stock spur of the B5M I guess it will depend on motor as well.

Does this seem okay? This is my first 2wd buggy and I know it can get a bit cramped inside for the electronics. Is there anything at all I need to consider on top of what I listed? Will be ordering online.

Was bulding my lite today and had a problem with one of the rear hexes. the threads for the set screw stripped out so I have to go buy a new set tomorrow. pretty disappointing. Other than that the build has gone smoothly. gonna finish the shocks tomorrow.

Looks sweet man! I see your super close to me! I will probably be seeing you at peg!

Another note I was looking on MIP website and saw there is 2 different puck systems for the b5m. Which one would be the right one?

This one
http://miponline.com/store/mip14230.html
Or this?

Top one (Regular) is for stock buggy.

Bi-metal is made for 17.5 and faster motors.

Same here. Both set screws snapped. They are only 1.6mm screws. Emailed AE...no response for 4days. Not like AE

Thanks a lot! I will be seeing if my LHS has it in stock if not I will order them and have them brought in.

I talked to the shop about the clear x-rings and he said they don't make that big of a difference. I also asked about the "fox" shock bodies and he said the same about them to. What are your guys opinions that are running them? I just want this car setup from the start. I know I should run it stock but I can never leave anything stock!

Yeah i had an old set of aluminum hexes from my b5m and they dont fit. tried the set screws from them and those are too big. I dont understand why they would make the screws smaller. Makes no sense.

I have spare axles and hexs from my B5 RM. They've never failed my in 12months. I'll only be running stock so no need for the new HD axles.

Funny...HD axles with piss weak hex set screws
