Although the B5M seems the reational choice, I cant decide what I want to buy
I am racing just a few times a year (lets say this summer) and 5-10 times in winter on high grip tracks (carpet).
I am not any kind of racer, so I really dont have to be 100% competitive (I am nowhere near of beating constant fast laptimes). So I think buying a used B5M (FL incl. all Hop ups would go for 170€) would be a good choice.
Even if I would attend some races (1-2 or at max, and I dont plan on doing so) the FL should be as competitive as I would need him to be) should be the way to go?

For the rmaining 75% of the year I am racing/driving at a dusty clay track, so the B5M isnt the best option. A friend tried to get his B5M to be as fast as my B5R on our outdoor dusty clay track but he got nowhere near of being as fast...so he gave up


But on the other hand, the B6 costs just 299€ - and I really like putting cars together

Nothing like the smell of a new kit.

So I'm wondering if using the b5m would work well on a lower grip surface, say somwhere where holeshots and ribs are the norm.

It can be at least as fast but will require a bit more tuning to keep it there. I liked the way the mid motor felt on lower grip too. It was a bit more forgiving as long as you don't try to pitch it into corners and go.

Ray Munday (AE team driver here in Australia) has setup sheets for the "low" grip outdoor tracks typical Down Under. Check out the first page of his "Ask Ray Munday" thread. link

I had that problem to, my pinion gear selection is from a few brands and noticed some pinions are thinner then other. The thinner ones don't rub, guess I have to get thin pinions now.

The finnisher body fits. I ran that until my fan broke.

Greg, with the Finnisher body and the R1 Works fan, I had to shave off just a bit of the top of the fan and add just a bit of shoe goo to the top of the body to keep it from hitting with the Shapeways Prime waterfall.

Just an FYI: The trinity fan mount is way easier to use and you don't have to find a body to fit it since it mounts on the side. Others will say is a fan necessary? On mine I can barely get my motor over 120* personally.

Not sure what kind of fan or waterfall are on the car, they came with it. Not even sure I need a fan.

Could you post up a pic? Yeah in buggy I never really needed one, I did have one but the 3D printed waterfalls were pretty weak and mine broke.
