Does anyone in the know have an estimate of the number of B5's that have been pre-ordered?

Different chassis's with different flex characteristics will be left for the aftermarket companies to deal with........

While watching the racing going on at the Reedy Race and seeing the two Ryan's leading the event with the C4.1's it's almost worth it to wonder why we need the B5M

eh, it's all the same I wish they would have done the test video for the B5M at the OCRC track so we could sort of compare the two under similar track conditions on video.

The secret plan is for all AE drivers to tank the race so everyone gets up in arms about how the B4 is no longer on par with the other cars. Then they debut the B5 at the next big race and sweep the podium to show the B5 is better than everything else. AE sits back and sells a ton of new kits.

Oh right, I was thinking about the three videos from SDRC that were featuring both buggies and the main engineers. But that video at OCRC hardly shows any actual laps, just highlights.
