Everyone knows the B5 series of cars were released with no good setup, on top of the fact that they are both just beefed up B4's and Centros.

The B5m is awesome right out of the box with little setup changes needed for stock class. It is a lot better quality than the centro and way better than the B4.2. Parts are avalible at my hobby shops locally. We had a big race this last weekend and did not see any of the B series buggies break and they did great

If they are just beefed up B4's and Centro's why not adapt a previous setup from one of those platforms? I adapted a setup I always ran on my B4 to my B5 rear motor and its pretty awesome. And for the parts....I have yet to break anything, the car is tough.

Honestly, if your sponsored, you should be able to make a setup and a car work for you. just sayin

+1 on durability. I went a little wide on a long jump landing and hit a pipe nail at full speed. The car instantly stopped, so the front arm took all of the force. I actually have a dent in my arm, but nothing broke. I broke a bulkhead going full speed into a wall....the car is not weak. And yeah,Matt. I pretty much ended up with my b4 setup with a little extra droop. If I can toon my own car, I would expect sponsored drivers to not use that as a reason to not run a chassis.

lunsford and I think exotek have axles. A "ton" of weight? no. not a ton. just a couple grams less than a lead weight

Seeing as how he only gave it 8 runs (and roughly a week to week and a half)....not a fair shakedown i'd say.

Ah, I needed a good laugh this morning. Can always count on RC Tech to come through in the clutch.

Anyways, currently building my MM car. I've built a lot of cars and usually take my time shaving off extra molding and whatnot. I literally had 70% of the car built in about an hour. It shows how much effort went into the fitment of parts with this car during development. Goes together so well and super quick.

Be running it soon.

Started my build last night. Should I go straight to the flat arms/tower from the start or run the stock front end first? A couple guys at one track I go to have made the switch and seem to like it.

Setting up my mid so I can run it back to back with my rear motor for a while.
