You can but it is tough, get the app on the iPhone called batchresizer. Make picture small and attach.

You don't even need an app. All you have to do is sometimes crop the photo down in size

Man...I put in some practice yesterady and today I raced. Second day with the car and I've had great results. I've never been in the top of the "A" but today I was 1 second off TQ and the car is awesome. I put the B5 arms and shock tower (regular plastic) and it was much better than stock. I can't wait to try the "hard" compnents. Never been all that much into off road but I am pleased to say, I AM NOW....Great Car

Drove it with the inline shorty.

Very good, weight balance is improved & more steering.

I really believe this will be the hot ticket mod


You grind off may be 7 gr of plastic & loose more weight from the shorter motor wires.

How did the flat arms/tower help the stock setup? Did you still have 4mm trailing axle?

Had a really great evening of practice with the car last night. I just love this darn thing, so balanced, so smooth, so predictable, and man can this thing take a beating! I got into a few hairy crashes and came out unscathed. Unfortunately 10 min before the track closed I clipped some chain link fence in mid air through our big triple. The fence grabbed my left front tire and yanked it to a dead stop. You could here a loud crack and everyone on the driver's stand cringed. I knew it wasn't going to walk away front that one. Carnage report, bulkhead snapped and pulled through the top plate and kick up plate with a bent front left turn buckle.

So, tested my B5M yesterday for a lot of packs. Here's my report:
The motor gets hot in this car. Dunno why but much hotter than in a RM B5 or a RM 22 or a MM 22. Same motor, same final drive. Not damaging hot but much more than normal.

Oh, and if try to run the hard rear shock tower and camber link, you might break the camber plate in less than one lap without crashing like I did. wtf?

Anyway, I started with the kit setup. We have a medium-high clay track here and what I ended up with was:
3mm inside rear camber ball stud height. This added a significant amount of side bite
Gray springs all around. Kept me from traction rolling and made the car more consistent. white - white was good but just a little rolly polly.
35wt front and 27.5 wt rear. More viscosity out back lost traction and didn't help anywhere else useful.
OH, and the big thing for me was to lean the upper rear shock mount in. This made all the difference in the world - moving the upper location to the "inner" hole.

Anyway, really enjoyed driving it for multiple packs yesterday. Sorta wish I could go back today....

Sweet. Why do you have chainlink fence there anyway?

It's ran all along the back of the track as a barrier between the track and the pit tables...
