Someone send me a RIGHT steering block so I can run again! Had way too much fun whipping off a big triple @ OCRC. I'm down for the count until parts float in. All good. I ran a lot (for me) in the past couple weeks.

Wont that make the push worse allowing more weight to move to the back?

Its Reedy's 14 gauge , has thinner insulation and is a little lighter then the other wire commonly used.

Very trick, what's going on my ride ....

Since the actual B5 gullwing arms don't have the right geometry for the flat B5 shock tower, and vice versa, I'm guessing the B4 ones aren't going to work out. It might fit and work, but suspension travel will likely suffer. Guess we all won't know because you'd lose 20 seconds of your life to find out! J/K
Using the flat tower with the b4 arms is 100% correct.

Are there any specific tuning tips anyone can give me for the mid motor chassis? Are there any adjustments that are made on a rear motor that do one thing but when done to a mid do something else?

Looks like Amain has gotten in more of those pan car shaped 2S packs. Better order quick to beat the rush!
