Plus you don't have to wait for the Factory Team B5m to come because the Serpent already has everything already.

I was looking so hard at the B5 I didn't take the time to compare them side by side. The Serpent is a clear winner in my eyes but both buggies do look great. I just think the serpent comes with a little better options.

But one thing I have heard the QC on the Serpent was not as good as expected. So will just have to wait on tje B5 and the MM Serpent.

If the B5 build goes good and the Serpent QC doesn't get any better ill be keeping the B5.


Just my .2

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.
The fastest people at my track all run mid motor

I have never snapped a b4 chassis since 2003...And my shocks didnt leak at all in the 11m v2 or the 12mm BB. I have seen the chassis break, but I have never personally broke one.

Funny. And about a year ago if I woulda told you mid-motor will be all the rage you'd prolly say something like "only if you run on carpet"!!!!

rm still dominates locally. Even the sponsored guys run rm. MM has not yet proven to be great.

About 2 years ago I ran a Schumacher Cougar SV and got laughed out of OC/RC, now you'd be hard pressed to find one of the fast guys not running some sort of MM setup. How the times change.

No, I would've told you that as soon as pros spend time figuring it out, it'll become popular, kinda like what just happened.

if they can make the MM work outdoors without tossing in a bunch of weight, I am in. Kinda hoping the b5m can do that.

I've missed mid motor since my Cougar SV. I'm just going to wait for the second wave of cars. I'd be nice to get an AE car with everything I need in the box.

The last few have been missing hubs, battery braces, and front axles.

My understanding is he did the TC5/6(?), 12R5.1/2. Not sure what else.
