Looking for a little gearing help. I have a B5M that I am going to run a Reedy 17.5 motor with a LRP speedo in blinky mode. The track is a high grid hard packed surface. I looked in the instruction manual and it suggest 23/78 or 31/69. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I had pucks and a nova slipper and ran 33/76 with temps at 140-145 with no fan. This was with the reedy sonic m3 17.5 at about 36-38* timing.

Wanted to build up a 1/10th scale buggy for the first time for the "off-season" and I actually don't want to spend a lot of money.
There are still shops that carry spare parts for the B5M but I don't know for how long.
Would be nice to get some answers

Just get a B6 instead,
there's no reason to choose a B5M instead of a B6.
I went from a B5M to B6 and think that B6 is a much better car.
Buy a B6.

How is the printing consistency, specifically the bearing clearances on these shapeways laydown transmissions? Do you have to Dremel them to fit or do they come pretty much good to go?

I like the B6 and I also like a XB2. But a guy is selling a B5m for just $110 shipped. I m new to off road. Price is very tempting.

the clearances are very tight and had to lightly dremel it out. Obviously donít do to much but just dremel a bit and test fit. I had to just barely take off the black printing to get to the white for the bearings to fit

I had one side of the case fit perfect and the other side I just did a little sanding with sand paper and then it was perfect as well. I would be afraid to use a dremel and take too much off, it really didn't take much,

One thing I found handy was I wrapped the sand paper around my driver and then I could just run that around the bearing circle. It seemed easier then trying to bend the sand paper and get it evenly in the groove.
