With the .1 coming, I'm sure the 3 gear transmission will be included

I like my Fantom 8.5 for the local med-high indoor clay track. It's plenty of motor

hmm...posted a new thread about weight differences between the rear and mid motor cars and it got buried here.

So, does anyone know where I can find the weights of the cars?

Imo build the kit box stock and run it like it is and see how the car works.

The flat front arms and rear motor front shock tower made the car work better for me and my driving style. I also use the rear motor rear arms, they move the rear hubs forward 2mm and will tend to give more rear traction.


Get the Ti turn buckles if you haven't already.

Nope all you need is the rear motor flat arms, and the rear motor front shock tower since it's more narrow.

Flat fronts and tower, you dont have to put the RM rear arms on at the same time but you need the front tower with the flat arms.
If you're good enough and don't hit too many walls, I would go with the hards, but if ya hit stuff go with the regular, they flex more and won't break as quickly.

I asked if there was going to be a FT B5m kit, not a B6 I guess I should reiterate, a 5.1 maybe?

Thanks for the replies guys! I know I can buy a lot of parts, I was just thinking if a FT kit was on the horizon, it would be a decent savings over the team kit and buying parts.

I guess if I took a step back and looked and noticed team B5M kids not discounted anywhere, that may be an indicator the FT kit isn't coming out particularly soon.

Of the tracks I've been to in my area. With the b5m being the most popular car on the track. I can't say I have seen any of them using the Gullwing arms. Everyone I have seen is using the flat arms . Including mine. The car works so good,
