Another way to look at how the caster angle affects the steering is relating it to throttle input. I think it is much easier for me too think of it in this way since in a very limited and rudimentary understanding, you are almost always off throttle when entering a corner, but on throttle when exiting a corner.

Lower Caster Angle gives you:
-More off throttle steering
-Less on throttle steering

Higher Caster Angle gives you:
-Less off throttle steering
-More on throttle steering

Sorry if I confused anyone

Thanks guys, I understand quite well what caster does just thought there was more to it since it not only changes caster but changes angle on the suspension arms. I might be over thinking it.

In my kit there were two angled ball cups but in the manual they are not indicated to use. Does anybody know where these go? I am assuming the steering tie rods?

Thanks!

Those are for the old bmax2 rear hubs that have a horizontal mount like on the stock B5 rear hubs. The switched to vertical ball studs on the option aluminum hub and stock YZ-2 hub.

You don't use them.

Caster also adds dampening.

What is a good starting gearing for stock 17.5T on carpet? I am using the stock 81T (I think it is) spur.

Thanks!!

17.5. A 72 May be a better choice. Maybe start with a 28 to 30 pinion then go up if need.

5x8x2.5mm I believe. Saw on the avid site were it indicates their bearing kit does not include it. I am gonna piece out all the ball diff parts separately too. Goin with the bfast stuff.

I have been running the buggy on med-med/high bite clay and it is very easy to drive. Once I got a neutral setup on the buggy it felt a lot better. Now if i could drive better it would be unbeatable! I will say at this moment, I have been doing better with my YZ-2 than i ever did with the B5m.
