It's better that the FT turn buckles are shorter than the stock ones, because the ball cups are so long on these cars. FT's will be a good fit.

Yeah, especially considering EVERYBODY is sold out of the sweet J Concepts finned turnbuckles now...

Just a quick update for those who have asked the rear motor/mid motor question.
Steven Hartson ran his B5M Wednesday for the first time.
His fast lap was the same as what he ran with his B5 but his overall was 2 seconds faster for 5 minutes. This was at OCRC on the Reedy race layout. Traction was up as everyone was going fast that night. Steven says his car was ok but he still wants to adjust the shock set up some.

Debate away, I'm just try to pass on the info.

From the videos I have seen the B5M's all look sweet!
That being said I'm gonna get one of each so I can run stock and mod, test and see which is better in each class...

<---- My poor 4.2 is gonna be orphaned soon!

I'm picking mine up today in an hour and I'll be down to 702 soon. Predu - I thought you were going to stick with the RM?
