Not yet, just finished it up. I suppose I could go to the 8th scale track 7 minutes from my house:nod

For the record, posting from my phone using photobucket was a pain in the butt, enjoy!

Grind all the tray off flush to the vertical sides of the brace . Be careful of the screw locations, don't remove. Cut each thumb screw separate from the tray then remove middle plastic between thumb screws.Each thumb screw is separate and uses the one screw for attachment.
Remove inside legs off water fall.
Slide Esc under water fall, only a 1/4 of Esc fits under the water fall.
Battery in front of Esc.
Receiver on right side of battery.

Note:
Grinding the battery tray is for more flex in front of waterfall to achieve more traction.

Jmoney, test each and tell everyone your results. Prove your theory...

I already done, and posted the results however..LOL

I cut the middle screws out of the cradle, if it doesn't work out it's a 6 dollar part. I cut it like you said, the piece pretty much tells you where to cut... Coincidence or AE Area 51 stuff built in?

Easy and fun to do.
Cost nothing as everyone already has the parts.

Not sure if Ae planned on these parts being modified.
But we would of waited way longer for this info if not for our own efforts here at Rctech.
Can't find info like this anywhere else...

Just decided to order a B5M.
And now I am reading in this thread that it seems it is not as robust / durable as the competitors (TLR 22 v2, RB6). A few pages before people report that plastic breaks without big crashed and on page 280 somebody mentioned that he changes kit plastic parts by hard plastic, because of durability.

Tell me the truth - what is your experience in terms of stability / durability?

Thx

Had mine 2+ months and haven't broken a thing, and I crash more than I like.

Most durable 1/10 buggy from associated... I feel ever.
Also had several b4's and RM 22 and MM 22.
Only thing I have had to replace is the stock wing after too many rubber side up landings.
Great buggy period.

Closest inside hole on hub if looking at hub mounted on car looking from above.

Only part I broke on either of my cars B5 and B5m was a faulty ball cup on my B5 and that lasted a monah before it finally popped off! Haven't had any breaking issues period! Nothing like the b4.2! Hitting poles head on and having crazy crashes will break any car! If your a decent driver you will not not break very many parts!
