I agree--I don't think you should get those--cuz when I do then Ill look cooler than you!!!!!
Seriously tho--was checking out our Pro's B5 (Chad Due) and am really impressed. AE has really upped the quality of this kit--I'd put it up there with any other top notch MFR--very nice!!!!!

It's 3" wide. My LHS has big rolls of it but Protek sells it in 2' strips. http://www.amainhobbies.com/product_...-3-wide-2-long

Oh didn't realize you were so pro that not even a gram makes a difference for you and as far as heat if your packs are getting hot in a 1/10 buggy you got other problems. I use it even on my packs for my 1/8 and never have heat issues.

I like to keep my stuff nice too. In my b4, small pebbles would get under the pack and make it look like crap. Plus the carbon battery strap was not so kind. So I approve of this to keep things looking nice. I put left over vinyl sticker on the bottom of my servos to keep them from getting scratched up too. Left over chassis tape works good too,

It's cool to hear they will be running the B5M at the Cactus Classic.

Looks like we will see the B5m at the Cactus classic. After driving the B5rm I was going to cancel my B5m order now I'm not so sure. Can it really be any better?

Our AE pro (Chad Due) has been running the RM and feels it's as good as his Centro. He further stated that he thinks the B5M will be like cheating.

The hidden advantage is that it insulates the battery helping keep it warmer and improving performance.
