Raced it, awesome machine...

On my third pack was only a couple sec short of my best with the C4..


Really impressed with the jumping & landings.

Expecting good times ahead for the Wild...

Still not a "must buy".. Extra front bulkhead would be more important.

Why would you need a bulkhead? Do you run into things that hard? My 9 year old racing mod in his hasn't broken a thing.

and have seen alot of different skill level drivers running b5/b5m.

I did see a broken front bulkhead under our pit table this past sat night race. Not sure who's it was but pretty sure it was a B5m's.

lol its stock racing. You need every single upgrade ever made. and then get out the dremel and cut everything in half. Thats how the stock guys are around here.

seriously though its a fairly heavy car. anything to shed weight would help. Al screws, ti turnbuckles, alum top shaft and one of the lighter slipper alternatives is where I would start.

I was looking at mine tonight and kinda want to have a buddy lathe some of the metal out of the one piece front axles.

Starting with this..

Cept was advised to change to 4mm under rear chassis stud.

Also not using the Kyosho springs.
Instead using Ae grey front & Ae white rear...
