Any chance the mods would allow car-based or manufacturer based sub-forums? Having a 12000 post thread for a single car that's only been out for only a year is pretty freaking insane.

There's so much more being done that the article didn't even get close to touching on.

I noticed one of liverc's early-in-the-event pit pics of Cavalieiri's B5M showed the 3 gear transmission installed, while the podium pic show him using the 4 gear. Any specific reasoning why the change back?

I just build this kit for my son and will be running 17.5 at IERC and Coyote Hobbies in SoCal. Anyone have any suggestions on gearing? Thanks!

What motor? How heavy is the car? 3 gear or 4? Which slipper assembly? How much timing? Fan or no fan? Which fan? 8.4V or 6.0v fan?

What is the preferred method to get it to fit? I suppose I could sand down the wing angle adjustment shim until I can get the pins through the mount. Is that what most of you all do or is there a better solution?

Any suggestions would be much appreciated!

Thanks,

I remove the shim and then use tlr wing washers on top and then it fits perfect. A lot of people also cut the nubs off and use exotek or jc aluminum screw type wing buttons.

How would a different "sub-forum".. for a single car.. be any different than a single thread for a single car? You would have just as many posts to go through, and even more threads to search through for what you were looking for. Everything you need to know here is on page #1. Most new relevant stuff.. just the last 20 pages or so. You don't need to read every post to learn all you need to know about this car.
