Go for it! I mean I really tried this time. Really wanted to just ignore the WC BS and work out getting the car tuned up, but I just have a low tolerance for willful ignorance and drama queens.

Anyone running the B5 flat front arms with the B5m tower? Wasn't sure if that would be a benefit or if you had to have the B5 tower to go along with it.

The MM tower is wider and lower. so you would minimally have more droop unless you were able to limit the shocks enough.

You guys are so mean...lol. I am very sure if I were suspended for a month, I would be the next avatar, lol.




So honest question here. Who is still running the default cradle config? I cut mine a while ago, mostly because i wanted more room for my electronics. But I cut off the battery strap mounts. This has proved to be a pain. I often have a short amount of time between bumps. So I am forced to 30amp charge my pack to be ready. Plus, taping my packs into my cars just bothers me. The amount of effort to take my pack out, when I was rebuilding, my car was unreal. I do NOT suggest using the 3M clear tape full width under the battery. That was over kill by a long shot. I am thinking about getting a new cradle and just cutting the area between the thumb screws, to give me a little more room and still use the battery strap. I do realize I wont be able to get my esc as far back and my car may feel different. Also, who makes the best fitting battery strap to inline the electronics, with the battery strap in place? Without cutting on the strap.

What are you running for packs? I really don't have plans to run that "brick" or "cube", whatever it is. I have some SMC shorty packs I plan to use.

Any issues with shorty packs?

I run the Proteck Square pack and really like it. My car is pretty dialed with Hartsons setup.

-No ballcup issue
-No need to hack up my chassis because I think I'm smarter than AE engineers
-Box stock kit with RM front arms, tower, and rear arms

my car still has all the cradle and stuff in it. In fact it still has B5m arms on it too
