The b4 had a servo saver, so not really the same. you much be much better than I am to feel that B5 plastic steering flex while driving.

I wanna call you out on this but I really can't. Being an "above average" club racer (on a good day) I can say I've felt things with different parts that I never thought I would notice, or expected to notice, for my skill level. So maybe you're right.

But you will pay for that. The turnigy ultimate's are ok for the budget racer and so it the vant stuff from dirt cheap RC.
Ya I mean I had SMC 4600's before and the Reedys dont feel that much different but idk anyways so the Orions are no good huh? Also while I really want the Trinity Revtech 100c batterys I refuse to pay that much and they're 5mm bullets thats just too big of a pain to switch from 4mm to 5mm especially when i have 4mm packs I would like to use for practice. So what would be the closest battery to the Trinity with 4mm bullets and a decent price?
