I know a few people were ordering or trying to order b5 parts. maybe that was why. There was almost enough parts on the site to buy them all and build the car...granted expensive

Default good press release

I like the latest interview much better. Looks like one of the B5m I have coming I might have to build for myself.
It was funny how all the AE guys are saying that its all about the mid motor cars and people are still trying to keep rear motor alive. It the audio interview he basically says if you run on anything other than a blown out, out door track mid motor is the way to go. Cav's statement is I have not gone to a track where rear motor is faster recently.

So are we all getting played? will there be a B5m or two at the reedy? a little gamesmanship from AE to make other manufacturers think they would be running the Centro again? If theres two, there could be 10, more people were excited about MM than the RM, so why not play it up and make everyone think they weren't ready. I cant wait to get mine that's all I know.

He must have selective memory. Anyone recall who won the sugar track 2013 Roar 2wd national title?

That being said, I'll likely have the MM B5 for 2wd mod next year

I find it hard to believe there are only a couple B5Ms in existence. Unless the photos of the parts on their site are prototypes (which they do not appear to be), the tooling is built and they could mold all the parts they need to assemble as many buggies as they wanted.

Ryan: The mid-motor platform seems to produce more corner speed on almost every surface compared to a rear-motor car. It's not for everyone, however, as sometimes it is difficult to find the right shock package for the track you are at. For your average racer a rear motor car is a lot more versatile then a mid motor, and less sensitive to tire and setup.


this is why people will run RM. I dont run indoors like many rctech driver. Also, maifield runs on nice tracks that are groomed. not everyone has that


The Engr said the MM was an indoor car with tight turns. And rm for 8th scale tracks. Us outdoor guys will still run RM. Also, I am sure the rtr version will be a RM config

Amen, I race at a non for profit race track during the summer(conditions change qualifier to qualifier). So traction can be there and not there, and its also rained during races. Rear motor for me!

So the question is when did OCRC get rid of their Christmas tree? This video could have possibly been filmed over a month ago, and until very recently even Kody said there was only "one mule". Liars, they're all liars.

So will a shorty pack fit in the center of the tray with the leads toward the front of the car or would it be too long?
