IMO, I would say that generally speaking MM is not ideal on 8th scale loose tracks. On indoor carpet you will want MM. As for the "Lite" version. Hard to say about the chassis as the car nor chassis are out yet. They are removing 25g of material. I would "assume" is has more flex than the stock chassis. If you really want more flex, the infinity chassis has a bunch of flex. They are also coming out with chassis stiffeners that might help for carpet racing. If I were racing on low bite 8th scale tracks and Indoor carpet tracks at different points in the year, I would have the conversion on hand. Personally I would get the "Lite" car and the RM conversion. Personally I think that is the best way to go and least expensive in the long run.

I'm gonna guess that even though it's marketed as the "lite" or 'stock' B5M, it's gonna be the go to car. If you don't have a B5M, why get one and then convert it? Used B5m's are cheap right now. I just sold ONE of mine with about $125 worth of upgrades for under $200.

RM cars are even cheaper.

I'm running almost exactly the Juho Levanen setup from the AE setup sheets page. I've got the gear diff installed as it shows on his sheet and I also have the 3 gear transmission.

My buggy handles better than I'm capable of driving it right now. I keep pushing it harder and getting a little faster with it each time we race and it takes whatever I throw at it.

I also went with the inline chassis setup. I like it but I'm not suggesting you do the same. I probably should have waited before deciding to do it myself.

Here's a direct link to his setup

This is exactly what I'm doing. I was hoping I made a good decision.

It made the highlights in Scotty's post on Facebook.

Did she/was she signed with a team yet (AE?) Any other girls drive for AE? How many girls/women are chassis sponsored? Besides Rhonda Drake?

Kamyrn Ayers water fall looks slick with the fan in there. Almost looks like it's meant to be.

I noticed she didnt have the water fall screws in to mount it to the MIP case. I assume she wanted more flex

lol, Come on. Any fast girl will get picked up my AE. marketing marketing marketing. AE looking for young drivers and a girl is icing on the cake. There are a few sponsored Women, but I dont know how many AE sponsors. I am not aware of any other sponsored female kids. I am sure there are some. I dont ever recall a girls winning stock buggy at Cactus or any big race. I am sure I am wrong though.
