I am curious as to who put my setup on petit rc. I have some updates for it and it would be much easier to supply the setup sheet properly instead of the text version.

Our layout has had a few pipes moved and has increased average speed a bit. Lap times have dropped about 1-1.5s and with only 2.5 runs on the track saturday I still feel there's a good .5s to be found on consistency basis.

I would email them directly, their email address is at the top of the setup sheet page.

This is very similar to what I run, make sure the c-hubs are centered in the arm, I have 2mm on the rack though. I also prefer long front link, and I keep my battery inline, but I have ran it sideways forward, with the speedo in the rear and it's pretty similar. (less work to try it out).

Does anyone know if this exists and can be purchased? The JConcepts Aluminum Wing mount for B5m. I see the aluminum shim is available, but I cannot find anything on the wing mount itself.

It has not been released yet...expect to see it in the near future though.

I've read through about 1/6th of this thread, and want a reasonably priced motor and ESC. I have tried to scour before asking, but don't really know what I am doing spec'ing this stuff.

I feel like Hobbywing makes the most sense from a cost perspective, and would probably run a 10.5 or 11.5 setup. http://www.fiercercsolutions.com/All-HW-Combos_c25.htm

I look on here, but it looks like all they have in stock is the Justock stuff. Can someone point me in a direction for a $100-$150 nice motor/ESC setup?

Indoor carpet track, but might play outside sometime. I am not looking to be competitive, mainly to have fun. Thank you!

With the milled chassis, what plastics is everyone using? Standard, hard or a combination?

The 10.5T Justock is great band for your buck. That what I ran for a few months until I get like I could actually benefit from an 8.5T and even now I hardly feel like I "need" the bigger motor...

I use the B5M wing mount set from Exotek, part #1438. It is very similar to the Jconcept wing mount.

So this JS2 (10.5T) will get me going? Do you have a servo recommendation as well?

Thank you!

This is very subjective. The right answer for you will be in the feel of the car.

Has anyone tried using any of the Turnigy servos in their car? Considering trying one out when I get the Lite.
