He was saying the b5m works better in high traction conditions if you read farther in the post, but the b5 is more stable so hence it takes big jumps and fast corners better.

My opinion still is one is not better then the other, you'll need both if you travel to other race facility's.

Has any anybody else noticed this? On the AVID bearing builder page, if you go to team associated, then 1/10th electric there is an option for a B5 RS. ??!!!

http://www.avidrc.com/flexkit/?kit=799&kitname=B5+RS

Mistake? Or maybe it is a leak? Ready to run B5 Rear Motor?

Lets hear what you guys think

Dont do it. I drilled the chassis hoping to lose some weight. It was not worth it. I drilled some holes around the servo, front to back in battery slot, and around the motor area. Alot of holes and only shed 10 grams. It didnt hurt rigidity, it just looks like hell for no reason.
The motor holes helped with temps though, alot.
I have a new chassis on order now.
With the aluminum topshaft, screw kit, and shorty I am at 1560.

I was disagreeing with the remark about the B5m needed only at the big races... To each their own, right? My racing buddy just sold his B5 RM because he feels his B5m is just as good or better in low bite.
