The car is just getting better and better.
Some B5m pron from this last weekend's club race. Thanks Honstain for the photos!

I don't mind writing this. I've already bank rolled it.

Saw the T5M was coming in this week possibly. I heard that the lite cars also were coming in with them, can anyone confirm that?

Would be rad if they came this week.

Besides it wasn't the wing that pushed her B5M to victory. It was the Reedy power!

Curious why you are running the "mid" tower with the flat arms?
