Maybe somebody can open a speculation thread or something. Most people are here for the car we already have and love.
Stop being a hater, you are in denial that a new car is on the way. Ever since the chatter started you been saying no way I am sure once the details on the new car are released people will go back to on subject.

I got the PM and I don't doubt it. But it always comes down to the fact that SOME people think they need to spend huge money to run 17.5 and label it a "money" class. Which to a point is true, you need a good motor and depending on where you race you might need to invest in the "juicing" game.

Half..more than half, of the stuff that you listed you bought because you wanted to, not because you NEEDED to in order to compete. Most likely

IMO, tracks that have and want a competitive 17.5 class use ONE simple rule. 1499g minimum weight, and they CHECK IT.

You can always derail a thread when you bring up 17.5 rules!

This is better than arguing over how many screws to loosen up on the cradle pieces and how loose to make them.

1/4 turn on every other screw. If the ambient temp is +88 degrees, 1/2 turn.

Well, if a new car is incoming. Would make perfect sense why they are trying to move the B5R's out of stock, with packaging them with B5m conversion kits.

Which begs the question, new T6m? Guess the only way to tell would be to see what the B6 looks like and what parts are shared.

"Off the rails"...There's a class that's dead in it's "tracks" (stadium truck)

Why would you even ask that in here? Go bump the T5m page up from page 6 of this forum (I honestly don't know what page it's on)

I think you just answered your own question as to why I asked here and not there.

And for what it's worth, I was just asking for the sake of discussion. I have a T5m that I have driven 2-3 times. Just takes up room on the shelf. So yea.. I know it's dead in it's "tracks"..
