Maifield said they don't exist, as in there are no actual kits to send the team drivers to build. Do you want him to re-phrase it and ask for your approval first?

Pretty awesome that was filmed at my home track of Pegasus Raceway in Mountclair, Ca.

The write up for Live R/C was probably completed last week (Even Live R/C has some lead time). So at that time they probably didn't exist.

It would be funny if he did! Calm down buddy, I'm just poking fun at the different things said, kind of like when politicians contradict themselves

It was a good promo video, makes me want it more, damn promotions. They posted a picture of RMs car in the pits so let the testing begin........but wait a Factory Team driver with just the Team Kit, or is it now a Factory Team Kit until Factory Team Kit comes out .

OMG! I know sarcasm runs rampant in some of these threads. I do it myself all the time, but apparently so does ignorance/laziness!

I asked Kody point blank about a SCT he laughed. I also asked for more team setups and he kept laughing.

I'm kind of wondering how the buggy will 'weigh in.' With the Aluminum chassis it will probably be on the heavier side and I am trying to decide between shorties or saddle-packs. If the weight won't be too much of an issue I'd rather use saddles. Any of you OCRC guys seen what type of battery they are running the test-mule with?

Edit- trying to avoid double-posting.. bad habit!
They are running shorty's and the square pack. Like Sean said, if your worried about weight run shorty's if your really worried about it check out the 2s pan car shorty from amain. As best I can tell from my calibrated hands the B5m is about 1550, it seems lighter than a 22 or RB6 but not as light as my underweight B4.x, Wallnuts says its lighter than his Centro.

If Kody, Brent, and Wallnuts all tell me there is just one test mule and no one is racing it at the Reedy then I believe them. And since none of them have been club racing it at OC_RC, I still believe them!

Mm that's some good info! I was hoping someone that has seen/held the buggy would chime in! That makes my decision a whole lot easier thanks!
