+1 on previous post about handling characteristics and application difference between MM and RM. I haven't ran 2WD Buggy in quite a while, but with the release of these new cars I hope to get back to 1/10 offroad racing.

I'm no expert nor have I driven a MM. But basically its like mid motor real cars. Because the mid motor has a more balanced weight distribution between the front and the back it is able to go into a corner faster and carry the speed better than a rear motor. The rear motor is able to put a lot more power down on exit. But mm is the popular right now because pro 1/10 buggies have been on clay and sugar tracks all year. People say MM if you have traction and RM if you dont, basically.

The opportunity of MM is less pendulium effect from the motor being behind the rear axle. By having a more even weight distribution more corner speed can be achieved bwfore one end of the car breaks traction.

More weight forward does not add steering, it takes it away (more weight = overwhelmed traction). This is why 4wd cars have wider front tires. As MM evolves expect front wheel/tire combos that take advantage of that.

can anyone recommend a good 5.5mm driver that is short handled and deep walled. The b5 used those screws with a nut, so I think a deep socket will be needed and the front tower is reversed, so it would need to be short. In fact, there might not be one that will work aside from the little alum t handled one.

I have one by Wiha. I believe it's something any hardware store would have(amainhobbies has them too but more $$). Socket is plenty deep and the wall is nice and thin so it clears tight spaces.

I see AE has updated the site several times, but no release date from AE on the B5 or B5M. I see what dirstributors have posted but I have not seen anything from AE. Anyone seen or heard from an AE source on release dates?

Does AE do release dates? Or just press release the car and ship it when they are in?

in the past when they have released info on new kits they give a release date, like early mid late month. But have not seen anything on this.

here is the release for the b4.2 from last january. I didnt see a release date, just the basic info like we have now. I am fairly sure, they dont say anything until they are like 2 weeks out. Or at least very close.

Here is the release on the 6.2, which has been typical of AE, with a release date at the bottom. All the new kits I have seen have a eta.

I saw the same thing on the b4.2 rtr, but not many of the others. Like the sc10B, b4.2, etc. maybe they only put it in the release if its close. That was a Nov 11 press release with a Dec expected date. With the Chinese new Year interruption, they might not feel confident enough to give a date right now. After what I saw last year, I would not give a date either. Remember trying to get the sc10b front tower and arms.... Or battery companies not have any stock for a couple months.

Watching the tower estimated arrival date is usually in the ball park.

I try to set a RC budget, would be nice to know an eta from AE..... It seems they have been pretty tight lipped about it. If the rumors are true that there are only two in existance and the team drivers wont have them for the Reedy race I find it difficult to believe they will be out in feb/march.

Also seems odd that AE is still pushing the Centro kit, via web site and facebook and the price is still listed at $199.00

Setting an RC budget is wise HOWEVER, when AE releases a new buggy... Budgets go out the window, kids go hungry, bills don't get paid... Just as long as I have my B5 and parts!! Haha

Priorities people, priorities
