Yeah my GF has a Yokomo and I really like it. Smooth but oversteer-y. I just got an XRay 2wd out of curiosity, but if it isn't fun, I'm going to make it 4wd and get either a Yokomo or B5M. Just curious how they compare.

Why is everyone using the orion speed control? Is there something special about it that I dont know about?

Pretty much what Matt said. matt has been a "Brand" name shopper for a long time. He is "trying" out some of the more economical stuff. I am sure if you PM him, he will give you feed back. I have been preaching it for a couple years and no one listens and over spends. lol. I tire of talking to walls, lol. I just let people over spend and if they ask me, I will give them feedback on the many many esc's I have bought and sold over the past 1-2 years. I have pretty much owned every major and high end budget esc. But I find most people will buy the shiny stuff or their personal brand they are loyal to.

I think you're mistaken?

From what my eyes see, "The Ryan's" were not running a B5m tower w/ flat arms at Cactus. They have the correct B5-RM tower to go with the flat arms. The AE setup sheet that NeoBuggy released, as well as the pics of Maifield's B5m reflect this. Check out the pics.

For the same reasons people buy 300w power supplies for $100 when they could convert a 575w server power for $15 and 20 mins of their time. More money than sense, and snobbery (ohhh, look at me...I gotz de bestess). I run Speed Passion and Toro ESC's. There's nothing the over priced big boys do that they can't.

You basically just said...

They weren't running a B5-RM tower with flat arms, they were running a B5-RM tower with flat arms.

Not mistaken at all. I said WHEN the ryan's do it. Never said they DID

I guess it went over your head, Point being evrything the pro's do people who don't have their talent will try. kinda like all the crying over cactus setups, who races a sugared outdoor track weekly???

It cracks me up that i say a guy i race with did it and liked it , and you keep saying it won't work cause sean said so...lol


And i am also racing a b5m on a low traction track, but it won't work for that either,right?

Thanks for the correction ; I knew what I meant, just typed it out wrong

Edited my original post to be correct now.

I am going with what Sean Cochran says he works for Team Associated (he took over for Mike Reedy when he retired!), and I experienced exactly what he said the problem would be with running incorrect tower/arms. If whatever setup worked for your bud, great.

Have fun with your B5m

Wildcat doesn't the HW 3.1 come with the 2 caps similar to the Orion, that you can use?
If you break open the orion caps to shrink wrap them, make sure you find a way to keep it together. They aren't soldered, or glued to anything. They are held in place by the top plastic case. So if you do shrink wrap them, make sure the pos/neg of both caps are still touching all of the metal tabs. I would suggest going with the hobbywing cap pack instead if you can verify that the specs are the same. The Orion has 2 16v 330uF caps in series.

(The orion and hobbywing cap packs are indeed the same, or very similar. I would just go for the hobbywing one instead of messing with the orion one.)
