Let me know how you like them. I think I don't like them. Now I did a few changes, so I can't say 100% it was the arms. It was to aggressive for me and I struggled all day just trying not to crash. I could barely run consistant and only got one 18sec lap while it was 19's and 20's with a few 22+'s...lol
This Saturday I'm planning on going back to the M arms and tower. It just might be my style though.

I just bumped up to mod a couple weeks ago. There was a full a & B main.

This is a tuning option. you may not need it, but want for tuning.
You going to be at W3 this Saturday?

AH ok. I cant do week days at W3. To far to drive before a 4 am work day. In two weeks I'm going to be in San Diego and I'm going to hit SDRC since it's right where I grew up.. lol To bad it wasn't there when I was.

I want to get some comparison's on setups. I think I have to do some more testing as I did the Maifield setup and I can't drive it. I originally had the Steve Hartman testing setup and it was good for me.

I would like to see a picture of a clamping front hex for a b5. I don't understand how or why you would want or need them. Isn't your hex built into the front axle?

So, I got my MM car all put together last night. I knew it would be heavier, but holy crap, lol. 1600+ grams with no body and a shorty. Thank goodness I plan to run mod soon. I would not want to push that around with a 17.5. If the car drives poorly, I might do a few things to drop weight. Also, that was with the triad, no chassis tape and a smallish viper vtx10 esc. It makes a 22 look like a feather weight car. Where do you think all of that weight comes from? The alum chassis cant weight 100 grams more.

My car is 1680 out of the box with a square battery and it works great. In fact, when I ran it lighter, it sucked. Don't buy into all the hype that you must be lighter. That stuff works for 17.5, but this isn't 17.5

It may very well work great, I was just surprised. I get my first runs tonight. Looking forward to it. But I still dont see how people can run this car box stock in 17.5.

they can do it because the car carries so much corner speed. What you lose in acceleration, you more than make up for. With that said, if I was to run this car in 17.5, I would focus on rotating mass. I don't care what the scale says for the overall car. I want the rotating mass as light as possible.
