nah thanks. I just race @ one track at around 15 minutes away from my hometown. (Carpet/highgrip)I was just curious if I "could" race on a low grip track if I want ( there is a Forum Meeting ~ 100km away)or if it ll be shit.

Thats why i prefer the B5M so far ( only driven a B44.1 so far, so I don`t know anything about the handling) but i`m not sure yet.

I am a Little scared that the RM jumps very difficult becaus of the engine at the back, making the nose go in the air at every jump. Jumps have always been my whackness with the b44 xD but at the end I got the way to go with the 4wd. It will be funny to see if itll work with the 2wd as well.

thanks for help though

You just need to learn how to jump a car. Just because the motor is in the back doesnt mean it will go nose high everywhere.

Does anybody know if the C4.2 body will fit the B5M?

No one on here has a B5m so they can't answer that.

Rear motor jumps & lands better then mid.

Nose high is all a driving issue..

The shocks and suspension were really really good. The buggy landed the step on step off smooth and you can get back on the power faster ... The stock setup Sean had was just as good as my Centro. I know with some more laps I will be faster with the B5m. I cant wait to get the new buggy.

I was wearing him out last night, he told me I could have aspin at it afterwards as well but I didn't stick around, as you may have noticed. (I'd been up since 3:30)

Kody is still changing his setup, even between rounds. He did say that he had submitted one to be posted on the web site so look for that. Sean was running a pretty stock setup he said, he had just finished building the car earlier in the day sao he didn't have any laps on it. Sean had already modified the "91512 Front Chassis Brace" by removing the crossbrace, I didn't get a chance to ask why.

I took a long look at both of their electronics packages comparing them to what I plan to install. Both Sean and Kody the Reedy ESC, that thing is huge, bigger than my R10, but it does incorporate the on off switch, both are running newer Rx's that are smaller than my RX-381, but I think it will still fit, a RX-471 will no problem. Kody had installed his transponder all the way up front under the steering rack and top plate, I didn't notice where Sean located his. Kody was using the standard XP servo, Sean had a s Sanwa 94647 shorty installed. In a nutshell you should be able to fit most high performance electronic packages.

Looks like I'll be camped out at OC_RC next week...

C4.2 body won't work. At least it didn't seem like it would when I set it over the chassis.

I removed the rib behind the servo just to free up a few extra mm of space for electronics.
I mounted my transponder in the front of servo. I choose to go with the short servo due to weight, it saved me 21 grams over the full size one.
Car weighed 1520g last night with short pack and servo. Only other changes was a few Ti and aluminum screws but everything on bottom of car was still steel.

Great info there Sean, thanks!

Anyone know the current setup sheet settings that Kody Numedahl is running at OCRC? He's FLYIN on that REEDY Race track and I think he has a great starting setup point for high grip clay setups.

Default B5M Setup

I will try to get the setup I have been running posted. It is very neutral to drive and is a great starting point for most conditions. The entire setup can be achieved out of the box except for spring/piston/oil but most people have these as tuning aids.

Thanks, Sean and Kody for bringing some sanity to these posts. Thanks Especially from me for putting up with my nonsense! Sean what spur/pinion are you running now?

Definitely get the MM and I am quite positive there will be setups for lower grip tracks for the other track you could try. The RM jumps like a dream the nose shouldn't go in the air all the time. But I'll say it will be VERY different than the B44.1. Completely different...
