Ok....

Don't beat me up too bad lol....

What do you guys see in the B5m that would make it better buggy over the C4.2?

I know the price looks very good but what else?

Thx...

To show off the new MM and gulwings and as Kody said, there is a performance reason. But like what was stated above. For a given track you might switch them. Maifield sometimes ran the straight arms on his sc10.2 and sometimes ran the gulwing. I am sure they will both have the place between the 2 cars.
C'mon, that's not what I said. Of course, they are two different platforms. I will probably, over time, get both. The answer was a joke. He basically said, "Well, we make both arm/shock tower sets, and we wanted to take some pics.". Not to insult, but I thought that AE would go all gull wing as most have gone. Give me a tested, tried and true engineering reason plz. Tony, who I quoted, has been in the biz for a lil' bit.

EDIT: I'm not asking for a FT version off the bat.

SORRY FOR THE DOUBLE EDIT: It looks like we will be the beta testers.

My money is hard earned and I have been fooled by companies before, How soon we forget the 1/8th scale car that was designed by a guy who had never even driven an 1/8th scale car previously.
I am just glad I can finally I sale the cars again since I could not sale the centros. I will be selling these at a players price.

Honestly, I'll wait for his reply. His first sentence was straight up perfect English. The second one, I'm guessing Russian immigrant. I don't even understand your post since he mentioned the Centro and you never did..I'm still

IMO, there's a lot of things to consider before listening to people who say go mid motor or die. Any RM guys still doing well at your track? Are the MM cars faster than the RM cars were before (would have to be on the same layout)?
Fast guys will always find a way to be fast, whether they run mid rear or front motor.

IMO, on REALLY high bite, a MM car can be better. On the average club track that doesn't eat a set of tires every run, either car can be fast with the right driver.

Timeout!

I'm not sure what "unknown" you guys have been arguing about over the last page and a half, but Hartson was testing the car today. Last week when I saw Kody testing it, he was running it with a shorty in the "longitudinal" direction, and the Reedy square pack, He was also running just a plane burnt red shell. Today Steven was testing the car with the battery in a parallel to the motor setup, FWIW he also had a shell painted in his scheme. I asked Kody point blank if that was Stevens car or the same test mule, and he looked me straight in the eye and confirmed it was still the mule.

Time in, carry on with arguing over speculation.

SMcD..your original post (which I can see) would have helped answer my question..you didn't need to edit it.

I'm not bagging on his post, just trying to fully understand it.
