Has anyone used the Turnigy ultimate short packs? I picked one up because it was one of few 5mm batteries I could find and I may be getting a RM soon so I wanted another pack. Probably wouldn't race with it over my Aero-Model but all in all is it a decent pack?

Whether or not one person can beat another is subjective to a lot of variables. It's never a fair comparison especially if you take into account visiting someone home track that they have thousands of laps on and know the tire game for it.

I think it's rude to speculate if a person would've beaten someone at a race they weren't at. However, if youd like me to send you some race results I can 😉

Just making a general statement that driving clean is still the most important aspect. Everyone lately gets so caught up in all this lightweight BS for stock, but if you're still clipping corners and blowing lines and having to get marshaled in an A main... You better spend that cash on more practice days and tires before dropping it on pucks or Ti screw kits or whatever.

You criticized their driving, so I was asking for comparison. Ashe Deering just took second at the top gun and tommy got first. Yeah, some of the guys in the A Main were not on the same level, and IMO they were struggling with traction. Hence, the pipe clipping. You are correct that keeping wheels down helps greatly in racing. There was a couple MM cars in that race, but I am pretty sure 7-9 of those cars were RM. Tommy won the top gun with an RM in stock and Ashe took second. I was looking for constructive feedback on the layout, traction level and flow for RM vs MM. I plan to run MM in 17.5 tomorrow on that layout. I will be running the RM car for comparison also. Some of those tracts where people swear my light weight MM cars be awesome, probably have way more traction. I dont like super light cars. But that is me. I normally like the feel of 1550 grams on my cars. maybe a little more or less depending. IMO this track also does not have a lot of good passing lines. So that might cause more pipe clipping as people try to forced it in.

Yes the track looked a little slick in mod and stock races. Any car/driver could've won. If that were me in the video I'd expect the same criticism. Our club races 10min mains and it's medium bite and bumpy on a good day... It's super tough to keep your shit together the whole race. I've ran several flawless mains like that. I've also won several where being flawless but not the fastest that day. I've also lost several from 1 or 2 small wrecks even though I could turn ballistic laps.

I really think mid/rear at my local indoor is a toss up between who's the better driver/car combo that day.

How are your Aero-Model batteries holding up?

Ive only got about ten runs through it but it seriously lasts forever. I usually can only stop by the track on my way home from work and can't spend more than an hour or two there and I have yet had to end a session due to a dead battery, simply me running out of time. Granted there is a some pit work in between there but I am blown away by how long they last.

Well I'm not quite sure how to ask this from what I'm reading your trying to cut weight off and I was wondering about buying all these aluminum parts to make it harder to break it will make it heavier but will it take away how the B5m handles on the track? Is it pretty rigid just stock out of the box?

These cars are extremely durable out of the box! Extremely! The only alum parts to run might be the rear arm mounts just to gain more adjustability and the rear camber mount which the plastic one has been somewhat weak for some, the alum version offers more tunability.

Anything can break on any car when you hit ridiculous stuff like poles or concrete blocks etc. there hasn't been any real issues with the new cars aside from rare random occurrences.
