I had to squeeze mine also, but the cups feel different than my first B5M cups. They feel a little less rigid, a little more "gooey" if that makes any sense?

Before I start this build I wanted to ask this question.

I have heard some people say that you don't really get that positive feel or engagement that the screw is tight. Is this an issue? I generally build my kits with the a Makita Hex Driver with the auto stop clutch. I usually set the clutch at the lightest setting and hand tighten by feel.

But what difference would I see by trying other brands? Better performance, similar performance for less money, or what?

Not sure why Racer is but I have some issues with Tekin. Their 1/8 scale stuff is great. Their 1/10 scale stuff is just sub-par IMO.

The brakes on the Tekin just aren't as smooth as HW/Orion. Major factor for me with 1/10 2wd (not so much in my 4wd).

Also another main gripe for me; they have an issue with their firmware. Take your pinion off the motor, add some timing (not blinky) and you'll hear an arc/missing sound from your motor when held at constant throttle just off neutral. Tekin is aware of the issue (as of 3 months ago since I mentioned it to Randy) and they still don't have a fix. They say it's not an issue but I feel otherwise.

I believe he had it done by a local company. He can correct me if I am wrong.

By far my favorite response.....I'm taking it , stock is the division I'd race in with a 17.5 motor. N that's what I'll go with....thx for ur replys there very much appreciated.

Btw I to use , tekin have rx8( d812)and a rxs (d413) combos ...n have been very happy with them. But I'm sure there are more cost effective combos out there, but tekin has treated me well so far.....

Hobbywing has some nice esc's for the price. If you are mainly considering Stock they have the Jusstock ESC ($50), you can also run a 13.5 with it as well. For more options down the road they have the Stock Spec V3.1 ($130) which can go down to a 5.5 I believe. I have tried tekin in the past and just didn't like the "feel" of them. Hobbywing is very smooth to drive, you really notice how an esc feels in a 2wd buggy.

2wd buggy and 1/12th scale will teach you how to drive.
