How does Hartson keep the battery in the car? Velcro, double sided tape?

Inexperienced drivers may not notice, experience driver can .

Problem is worst when having to much weight towards the rear of car and chassis roll is limited.
OK, I understand. I was battling that this weekend.

*IDEA*

I noticed when installing my motor today in my build, there is a small gap underneath it once tightened down. The chassis would be a great heatsink! I'm sure someone can tool a piece of aluminum to fit between and transfer some of the heat to the chassis to help keep temps down. Putting a "curve" to hug the motor would keep it from moving around.

Please remember this post to whomever makes this and possible sells it, I want a demo

I have a friend that has a machine shop. I having a aluminum top shaft drop shipped to him. He's going to machine off the gear teeth on the top shaft to match the width of the cut idler gear.

I lose a bit more rotating mass and gain just a bit more acceleration and RPM.

A few RB6MM guys at my local track went B5M and like them. Cheaper parts and durable. Both are great cars, pick your passion.

I already have a RB6 I just wanted to know is it worth getting the B5M and buying all new stuff. However, if this car is that great I don't mind changing.

I don't think a B5M would be so great you should immediately change. When your RB6 is ready for replacement, then consider it. The price point of the car is very appealing, but you do need a few upgrades here and there but it still ends up cheaper than a RB6. And finally AE went metric

hello people! so i got my B5M a week ago, i came here to learn some racing setups/tips. After reading a few hundred posts, i noticed that people were having motor temp issues?

So, as of now I am only concerned about my B5M running its motors hot, because my driving style- is aggressive and i run 8.5 turn for 2wd modified class at our indoor dirt track.

I thought I saw somewhere- someone suggesting that we cut out the stock B5M body's side scoops? The scoops' positionings look right and the right side scoop looks like it lines up with the motor so should it stream cool air straight on the motor? OR would it be disastrous, weakening the body? Any tips or advices will be appreciated! Pic is attached for reference.
