How can you tell the old crush tubes from the new crush tubes?

I love the Schelle bearings! I have them in both my B5 and B5M. Absolutely no issues. Also run the tranny ceramic kit in my stock B5.

Looks great Don! How did you mount the battery posts to the chassis so far back?

The guys at our track haven't had any trouble with heat running this way my ESC is just getting warm after our 6 min main mine heats up to about 70 DEG. and i'm running stock class 17.5, just take your time and get your gearing right so your motor don't over heat and you will be ok.

Thanks! We run outdoors in South Florida here...so heat is always an issue...just have to weigh the extra bite in the front end vs. temp.

Thanks. Cut the cradle, screwed the thumb mount screws all the way through to mark the chassis, Then just drilled the new holes. Still need to countersink on the bottom as all i had was a cone shaped dremel bit but its ok for now. Need a chassis protector anyway.
