Is the mid motor going to be a handful to actually drive? I drove a few rear motor buggy cars during a club practice. It was definitely faster than my sc10 in all aspects, but I did experience the swinging effect in the corners. Any suggestions? I'm pretty fresh when it comes to buggy, but do you all think it would be a bad choice? As I stated on page 72, I actually like the quick response in my steering.

Might want to chk on the B5R chat since they've been running the car for awhile and would probably hv a better feel of what are the weaker areas.

30-32 degrees. I have run both 33-69 and 34-72 don't know that I can tell a difference.

I will have to play around with that a little this weekend. I have always ran my Mach 2's in the 38-40 degree range. Thanks!

I personally think that is too much timing. For sure too much for the type of gear ratios we were talking about. I prefer to keep the timing lower because I think it make the power curve broader. With more timing gearing must be spot on or it doesn't run right.

That's actually Brent's setup from the JC Indoor nationals and it is a B5 setup not a B5m.
