Nicely done, how did you get the sensor cable out without kinking it?

It's pretty flexible. There is some space on the 410. The wires are on a board that sticks out past the case.

I haven't. I thought it looked pretty well balanced.
I'm recently back into the hobby so I'm sure I'm not seeing it the way you are. Why dos it look like more on the left? Thanks

I was thinking the same thing. Esc is almost centered. The only thing that would be pulling it a bit to the left would be the motor. Maybe that is what he is referring to? Keep electronics far right to offset motor weight?

Thumbs up Arms on the b5m Lite

I just started running the B5M Lite and really like the car a lot but I broke a front arm on a landing at the track last week!!! I was thinking of changing at least the front if not both the Fr & Rr arms over to the optional Hard Arms. Then I wondered if the harder arms might change the handling or are the harder arms just for durability which would serve my purpose for changing them? I have noticed guys running the hard arms in a lot of set-ups posted on line. Anyone else running the hard arms?

My understanding is that the hard parts are less flexible and more brittle than the regular parts. They're more of a tuning option to make the car more rigid and probably not a good option if you're looking for more durability.

Yea keep running the stock A-arms most of us will make mistakes land wrong or hit a pipe hard . If you want to make the buggy more responsive there is more than one thing that's easy to tune to do it .

The Pros can get away with running harder arms . But I've had some hard pipe hits getting into loose dirt I dint see nothing happen .

i have run one of those the only reason i got rid of mine is because i cut the holes wrong so eventually it was too wobbly. great wing though

That might be the ticket, remove the bulkhead between the screwdowns. I could slide everything back a touch.

Thanks for the info on that. I was thinking of cutting the foam and having a gap, but that's an easier way to do it.
Cutting that piece gives you that extra touch of room you'll need.

Typical arms breaking, it happens just make sure to roll the pin on glass or something flat to make sure it's straight.
