i usually run mod at other tracks. but there is some big jumps, very technical track. makes alot of people fast. because of how tight it is.
im the bright pink buggy starting in first. lost position midway race and then regained first in the last lap

Exactly

I started reading this and was thinking you thought I was serious...then I sensed the sarcasm.

Curious if the b5m light has different spindles or is a one piece instead of inserts, or if they just will ignore the bearing eating problem lol

Stock is for people with too much time on their hands and money to burn. Spending money to go faster with all of the mods and anal retentive weight management when they can slap a mod motor in and run the car stock and save that money for practice time.

my mistake.... I misread the axle pin part number, lol.

I never bent and axle. Is that a real issue? Or just a precaution for the T5M coming and standard parts.
