I'm wondering if the Proline Predator or the JConcepts S2 Worlds will fit with enough clearance for a 10mm thick fan on the LCG waterfall.
I use the S2 but it's tight so I cannot see it fitting if you have the fan.

I run aluminum, also just ordered some of the Parma slot car spur gears to try out as a pinion.

This is my current incarnation of my Buggy I race down here in OZ in the stock 17.5t class. Such a great car to drive, I've only been doing this for 4 months and I love the hobby and this buggy, who I've named Betty. I got her 2nd hand with a few goodies on her.

I've the Schuurspeed 17.5t motor, turning a Exotek eliminator with the flite spur gear.i updated to a 3-gear transmission with some avid aura bearings in the case. As you can see I'm using the Prime waterfall brace so that I can run the WTF windy fan which I modded by filing an edge and notching for the battery brace.. This is a great setup it means I can practice with her for extended runs without worrying about motor temperatures. She wears FT rear alloy hubs and jconcepts ti front axles, connected to the FT alloy steering bellcranks then to a Sävox 1257. I've trimmed all her cables to keep it neat, weighs in at race weight 1530g with a brass c block. Too twitchy at minimum.

RC racing is such a buzz, though too addictive for me as I've become a RC gear head. I love the goodies, and justify every purchase with either weight savings (not super important I've learnt) or most importantly reliability. For me now though "Betty is as upgraded as she will get. I just keep her clean & tidy and maintain her when needed. I've had 2 glitches in 4months of weekly racing, ripped out a rear camber ballstud, when hit on a fast sweeper. Lost a front ballstud nut somehow, nylock must have worn I'm guessing. Tough car.

I use Ray Munday's setups, they are spot on(he races at my track so they are well suited, hah! Thanks Ray) http://www.rctech.net/forum/attachme...day-201503.pdf

It's all about driving, driving, driving now. Learnt a lot about the b5m reading this thread, so to all that have contributed a big thanks loving my RC time. I'm getting quicker too. With limited drive time I only get to the track on race days I'm concentrating hard on improving and am getting closer to the leaders every week.

RC racing has been a saving grace for me after a tough year, I don't know where I'd be without it. Is has truly been a great pastime I've turned to when things are tough. Researching, reading, wrenching, driving & the guys at all the tracks are wonderful people. Over share complete.
Buggy looks good!! I agree, this has also been a great past time and it's helped me get through tough times dealing with a couple of back surgeries and learning how to walk again. With my down time I've spent a lot of it working on my buggy and other cars as well as reading a lot of what people have to say, jotting down notes and trying things out myself.

Some of the best people are the lhs employees and others at the track, everyone is always willing to help. It's an awesome community!

We just picked up Fantom. The first batch of motors that we bought we're ballistic. Their 17.5s and 13.5s are unbelievably fast. They also have a new 5000mah 100c shorty that is very light. That's pretty good too.

I'm looking for some 13.5 gearing (running a Reedy Mach 2) recommendations for my B5ML. Indoor track, medium to small in size. Is anyone running something other than the 30/75 that the manual has as a staring point?

The manual is a good starting point usually. I usually go up a tooth or two on pinion as the recommendations are fairly conservative.
