that just means you wasted money on useless B5M upgrades.

Wanted to introduce myself. I'm Brian Henn, Or more well known as "Smiley" lol. I just recently left HB/HPI and signed with AE. I've been running the B5M for quite some time. So, If anyone has questions, I'll answer them as I can! My local track in Houston is Club RC. Super high bite clay (Sprayed with Dirt Glue).

1200 on a B5m you must enjoy wasting money. If you add all the upgrades Cav had on his national winning car it is well under half that total.

I actually do enjoy wasting money. Thanks for pointing it out, thought it was obvious.

Cav's car was a lot less expensive, in fact, I have a feeling he didn't pay 1 cent for his car, making it cheaper than anything you and I could put together.

Just installed the red's workshop trans in the B5M and have to say that it's an improvement over having the CE with the lite chassis. I could not make the car traction roll on a high bite clay track. Makes the car much easier to drive fast in and out of corners. I hope that AE produces something quick like this so everyone can enjoy what this car can do at hopefully a reasonable price.

I'm telling you, it's all a troll job for a F1 or a RTR monster truck.

Yep. My name is Joe. I like xray and to troll the AE guys. I also compare my imaginary xray lap times to my b5m....even though I have not owned a b5m in months because I was running game 8th scale. And since I last raced 10th scale all of my track layouts have changed. So my old b5m lap times are meaningless to my new lap times with the xb2......lol

I actually ran a very well equipped B5M Lite on Saturday in open practice. I can post pics if you'd like....But continue to make assumptions in your fantasy world
