This is an answer to a PM......

Here was the question
Quote:
Hi jason, just saw your post about the b5m vs the b5 rm. what type of traction is your track? Looks like medium to high bite?

What about he b5m do you like better other than the obvious that it's probably faster for you?
Answer:

My track is generally medium to medium high.....almost never totally high grip...when it gets dry I'd sat medium low....in the video its medium-high

Overall the buggy does feel faster and it does NOT seem to have the on power push i couldn't get rid of in my RM......could be the weight bias could be the gull wing front arms...who knows. Its gonna take some time for me to know when i have a set up that works best for my driving style....but for just running it one night....I'm pretty stoked

Nope, if you get them anywhere close to the ball cups the ball cups will blow up.

Yes. They work.

I believe they are the same but everywhere was sold out so I went through Lunsford website and they have a set labeled b5. I saw a lot of ppl saying ball cups where hard to thread I just did mine with Lunsford and went on easy but I use Chapstick on threads also.

Anyone..? Or is it the onroad genes in me thinking crazy stuff like this

If it would be a possibility, I'd do it! Would make things a lot cleaner and easier to swap batteries!

I will give it a try when I get mine at the end of the month when my track gets the rest of their order in.

New Jconcepts silencer body. Redrc.net
Proline looks better, but jconcepts looks to have better airflow.
