i also personally ran all hard parts, i think he only ran hard arms and front tower.. not sure .

also if youre not running a slipper eliminator @ OCRC with a mid motor you might as well just buy a rear motor :P
I have a B5

^^^ Those Exotek parts are beautiful. I saw them on their site last night. Those carbon fiber shock mounts are thick, but I still wonder how durable they'll be in the event of a crash. The metal ball stud mounts could possibly pull out too.

Would love to hear everyone's input!
How many turns would you run in mod? I bought a HobbyWing Justock ESC for my stock SC truck. Then I moved to mod buggy and bought a HobbyWing Xtreme Stock ESC. The Xtreme Stock ESC will do both blinky and mod. I'll be honest, I'm new to racing, but I love both ESC's.

If you want an even cheaper option that has been getting rave reviews, you can try HobbyKing's 120A ESC that apparently can use HobbyWing firmware and programming cards. Not bad for $37. http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...nsorless_.html

Especially if you need both towers as a tuning option. It would be nice if they included both towers and only one set of the aluminum ball stud mounts.

Guess I need to place another Exotek order. New tower looks killer and will round out the package since I already have all the other stuff they offer.

That exotek tower would make my CF B5m look really good.

Finally took the plunge on a transponder last night - Im all in at this point - good to actually get some numbers from my runs. First race sept 21! - I started in the spring and the track I go do doesn't do summer racing.
