I would guess it changes the angle of the hinge pins to adjust toe?
The C mount is on the front side of the transmission and controls toe and anti squat. The D mount is the rear most mount at the back of the car. Every car has a C and D mount

Default Battery wars

Maybe ROAR needs to introduce a minimum size and minimum weight of batteries stop the battery war that is now going on with smaller and lighter packs.
Will dumping return to racing??
Longer mains, smaller batteries, higher costs

No serious 17.5 racer would use one of the small packs.

The small packs are more intended for mod to save a lil weight. In stock LRP now makes a lightweight LCG 4300mah pack its called a stock spec. The ultra shorty is intended more for mod.

Voltage.

Although Lipos do have a relatively flat discharge curve, none the less, as you deplete a pack in a race it provides less voltage.

A higher capacity pack will provide a higher average voltage over the duration of a race as compared to a lower capacity pack.

+1
This can be the difference between making a double double, or having to make it a double single single. And if someone else can still make it at the end, you're gonna lose some time to them there. Best thing to do is drop the weight elsewhere and run a bigger mah pack. I can run a 5000 and stay near minimum weight. Can really feel the difference over a 4100 pack at the end of a main

IR and MAH.

Weight is not everything, but it's certainly something.

speaking of the C and D mount, How much of a difference do the brass mounts make? I lust got the set but have not put them on yet.

I have tried the brass C mount, and actually like it on my t5m. The D mount doesn't make complete sense to me personally, but I'm sure there are several people that like it though.

Is there any reason a servo saver should not be used with a B5M?

less steering feel. I've never had a problem on a 2wd buggy running no servo saver.

15 years ago, definitely you needed/wanted one. Today's servos are so good and durable, that I just don't see the need.

The alloy racks, and the servo horns are suspect though on the T5M - I've even seen a stock plastic rack get broken. Remember this - you strengthen 1 part, then the other parts have the load transferred to them. Eventually this will affect the servo - Alloy rack, alloy bell cranks, alloy servo horn, and I'd bet you'll see broken steering blocks and broken servos.

I suspect AE will need to beef up the alloy/plastic steering for the T5M. Probably an HD version.
