Alright, so I have been out of the offroad thing for a small while now, but have my hands on both B5 and B5M. Debating selling the RM, perhaps.

Since I'm in LA, what do you local LA/OC guys recommend I keep if I only keep one car? I'd be going mostly to OCRC but I do want to try out other tracks in LA/OC.

Look what the postman just dropped off. Looks like the daughter and I have a long night ahead of us. Need to head down to Burger King, grab some Whoppers and start building!

Those black wheels look pretty good. I'm debating whether or not I should dye the stock wheels black once it gets here, just to be a little different.

Definitely run the B5M indoors. If you have both cars keep the r for revelation, hot rod hobbies, controlled chaos and other outdoor tracks that can get loose and rutted. The M will not be ideal there.

Hey J !

I'm heading to LRH tomorrow for my B5m maiden voyage. Didn't LRH just re-do the layout not long ago ? Those guys are usually good about keeping the track in nice shape I thought.

contact AE, and have a copy of your receipt handy.


I like AE and all, and the car seems to be better made, but their employees in Taiwan leave a lot to be desired in the QC department. I am sure AE will get it worked out, but jesus.

LOL, I just noticed that!

Just got done with the tranny, just gotta do the shocks and turn buckles. What a nice build, I love the aluminum chassis!
