Check it out:

I would get this one, since they are the same battery and the 100c rating on the protek is fictional.

I just bit the bullet, and ordered a Trinity Titanium XL shorty w/4mm. My B5m is my only car with the 5mm connector, so I may use another ESC for stock.

Anyone else seem to notice, what appears to be a cut rear motor guard on Cav's B5M? Look closely, and you will see it.

Rivkin's B5M is missing the screws in the motor guard as well.

Yes, on the 22 platform people running carpet in mid config are loosening the bottom screws of the waterfall to gain flex...

White/red/white for those conditions.

The 4mm/5mm bullet is probably the best compromise if running the two battery types., but I am not too sure about that extra 5mm being exposed on 4mm.
The 4/5mm bullet combo connector weights more too. I was running them but decided to remove them and go with straight 4mm bullets on my B5M and save the 5mm shorty packs for my SC truck. Also the 4/5mm combo plug sticks out and causes fitment issues with the body, and as you mentioned can short if the exposed ends touches something conductive.

Definitely the right price. Hope they perform as my rebuild with ceramics is now complete. Had to do it twice because I did not clean parts 100%. My guess is that folks who are having issues rebuilding ball diffs are not aware that all parts have to be perfectly clean. The least bit of contaminate will bugger the whole rebuild. Motor sprayed and compressed air all parts and broke in with my drill motor. Smooth as butter and ready to roll. I purchased ceramics from local racer who does not care for ceramics. So far, I am totally pleased. Will try to post after several races to update on wear.

Just rebuilt my diff as well. Did the lift test and could finally hear the slipper slip though I did get a the slightest bit of chirp and then just stopped. The schelle slipper is coming tomorrow so I am going to wait to do any more tooling around. The diff rebuild went well. and I made sure to put it on the tight side for the slipper testing. I dunno if I am just giving it too much gas. running 79/21 (i think) and a lot of boost on my esc I'm wondering if its simply just too much power for the lift test and am in fact blowing it out. regardless... one small chirp won't kill anything (if you say it does I think ill live for a few runs and then do another rebuild, and i tightened it about 1/8 turn after that. who knows maybe I'm not exactly sure what the chirp actually sounds like.

Thanks for everyone's help as always. You guys are a great resource and have taught me a ton in the last few weeks. Always appreciated.
