Broke a rear tower mount and they are not available yet so I made one. Used a Tlr 22 front bulkhead trimmed,drilled and filled.

Impressive!

Regarding any hooking issues, I haven't had any hooking issues myself at OCRC. I'd like to get a set of flat front A-arms to try out since I'm just not sure how much it will change the feel of the car on a nice grip indoor clay track. After putting the Pucks system in my B5M I'm struggling getting the car dialed in again.

I sold my 2nd B5M (still in box) to a friend so I'm on the hunt for another one. If anyone knows of a place with them in stock please post it up here!

Looking for an unbiased opinion on which buggy you prefer. AE b5m or tlr 22 2.0 (mm). Not looking to start a war just a simple question for the guys who have both and have done side by side testing. I currently have a 22 2.0 with rocket rc nrass anti squat and rear camber block base. Last night was my first outing with it and it was rather rough bc i was trying to break in new front tires and it was also my first time on the track with it. Didnt do bad at all, was just a lap off pace from my rear motor car, which i was very comfortable with. I know it takes a little time to get used to mid motor so im not thinking about switching it back until ive had enough time to adjust. Im all for any car that makes me faster but i have to feel comfortable with it first.

As you can see from the Cactus grid, there are six different cars in the A main. What that should tell everyone it's that all of these cars are essentially equals. It will come down to driver.
