But I wasn't testing the limits of my current setup much at all. I believe my B5M will hang with any buggy that was out there and can beat most of them. I just have to work on doing my part.

I got some advice to try the kit setup. I have the aluminum rear hubs, so what does the kit setup with stock hubs translate to aluminum hubs? What hole, and how many spacers?

lol. I am feeling the same way. I thought I messed up my set up by going all through my buggy this last week. But found out I just had the wrong tire. Our track was out of Gold dirt webs so I mounted up gold barcodes. my car was off pace throughout qualifying until I found an old set of Gold dirt webs. Then it was game on.

10th scale season is done for me so if anyone is looking for a clean car, hit me up. I haven't posted it yet but I probably will in a couple days after I get a chance to clean it up and take inventory and pics. I can sell as roller or with Futaba BLS451, HobbyWing 3.1, HobbyWing 7.5T.

Do any of you guys race on grass or astro? Or is it mainly dirt & clay?

Over here in the UK, I mainly race on grass & astro.

I'm thinking of getting the B5M Lite to race in mod mainly due to the optional extras the kit comes with. My plan would be to try the 3 gear box first and see how I get on with it then depending on the outcome, either stick with the 3 gear box or try a 4 gear box.
