Default Thanks for the Pics!

I appreciate the pics on the long Battery configuration on the B5M. I will probably do something simular. When I get done with it I will try to upload some pics.

The final set-up would be great! To give me a starting point on the setup..

They are all identical out back. TLR, AE, Kyosho, B44, TLR22.4, and others. Look at the Proline rear rims and it gives a pretty good list. Only Xray and Durango need adaptors.

the tlr wheels have a thicker hub. like about 2mm thicker. AE brand wheels there for dont work great on tlr 22 with the narrow hex. The tlr wheels have issues on the rb6 because if its shorter axle. But the AKA and AVID b5/22 wheels seem it fit most cars well. and the tlr22 rear fits the b5 just fine.

That's exactly what I thought. Indoors I always run a tight diff or my car behaves like his. Also if you're on super soft tires and guys are on clay, you are going to struggle. I suggest you walk over and ask the fast guys what they are on, what foams and what traction compound.

Obviously I'm not there but just judging by the video I would be on clay typos or clay dejavu / pinstripes.

Just watched the MM video too. You drive the MM car like a RM and the RM car like a MM. You're total point and shoot with the MM and you try to just let the RM flow around the turns.

Fix your diff, get on the right tires, pick one car and shelf the other for a month. then record that race and show us the difference.

I'm not bein rude at all wildcat but I +1 this comment.when driving a MM car I feel like slowing down the steering input from your hand to the transmitter and creating an arch type shape around the corners will speed you up at least a second per lap without any additional throttle input. It put me from the back of mod buggy a main to mid pack it took me a couple weeks to learn it but corner speed improved in every class I run. If you can drive a 2wd buggy fast you can drive anything fast!!

Going to be interesting tommorow watching how our 17.5 guys react to learning about the lead under the battery trick.

Think they will be stubborn about using until someone does it and go faster.lol

yeah I'm not saying it to be rude. I think he knows. I just don't sugar coat stuff. I've seen his other videos. He's a much better driver than those 2 let on.

It is fine. I was already planning to not run the RM for a while. But I think I will keep temptation at bay and just leave it at home. I have a habit of switching to my RM car once the MM car does anything I dont like. I guess the RM has been my goto. I think I will spend the next month or 2 and only drive and work on the MM car. I watched the video for the first time last night. Holy crap the MM car looked bad. Man it looked super hard to drive, lol. I was carving the corners with the RM car because it will traction roll in some of those corners. It may not have looked like it, but traction was plenty good. I talked to a few locals and plan to pick up some different tires this week. It seems that clay typo and pin stripes are good. I have some typos for the rear, just need to get some fronts.


Oh, and on the diff, I think my diff is tight. But tightness is a relative thing. I will have someone that can feel the diff give their opinion.

Built my car yesterday and the front end seems really tight almost everywhere....nothing is overtightened....I used the ae ft alum. Rack.....its not binding just the tolerances are extremely tight.....anyone else notice this?

Feels like most posts are regarding stock motor setups. Most people in my neck of the woods run mod. Love to see more folks posting their mod setups. Also, I find in mod running saddles is more consistent at my track vs. shorty setups as our track tends to dry out and get a bit dusty as the race night progresses.

Running about 1670 grams atm.
