The ProLine Trifecta is pretty durable. However I like the design of the Upgrade RC Vortex wing.

Honestly, the stock wing is the best. It's strong, great down force and inexpensive.

Thanks for your replies Even though I'd like to hear different. On thought I had:
The B5R has more weight on the rear axle (RA), the B5M FL should have nearly the same (or most likely) a little more weight. So the added weight would be partially at the RA. So if a (just a example) B5R weighs 1500 and the B5M FL 1650 it could be possible that both share (nearly) the same load on the rear axle. So the difference would be the longer distance between the wheels (dont know the english term) and that most of the mass (motor) is nearer to the center of rotation (which I think is good).

Are my thoughts wrong? What do I miss (as you can see I am looking for reasons that are pro B5M )

And ragarding the track: It's my first year there and I cant tell if the track is most likely to be that dry (like dusty dry) ore more likely wet sticky clay.

The stock wing never lasts very long for me. The sides of the wing seem to break the most easily. The Proline Trifecta wing lasts a long time though. What I started doing was use the Proline wing most of the time and use the stock wing only for racing (due to slight weight savings).

I've been using my stock wing since I built the car and it is hanging in there. I spend a lot of time on my lid too. My finnisher body came with a 2 pack of wings so I think I am good for a little while.

+1 on the pre-trimmed b5m j concepts wing. I was going to order one from my local hobby store. I'll most likely buy that one at rc planet

I had pretty good luck with my kit wing from last June til now. I just finally replaced it with a JC Finnisher wing to match my front wing.

Looking good and welcome back to the hobby! Great job soldering, the more you do it the better and easier it gets. Nice job bundling up the wires and keeping it clean too.

Body painting is something that I used to do but I just don't have the patience anymore for it. I found Diggity Designs and he does an awesome job for $35, worth every penny!! I just keep the single paint color body for messing around.
