None. They work identically.

Totally not true at all.

Does cutting the brace between the the battery strap at thumb screws have any negative effects on the car?

No. The chassis itself is very rigid.

As usual, some others have their own opinion.

Hi all. Noob here from south central WI. Been away from RC for 23 years and looking to make a return. I've done weeks researching, read the past 50 pages of this thread and its clear things have changed quite a bit from a technology perspective.

Back in '93 I bought a new RC10T, dyed the white nylon arms with food coloring, upgraded to titanium turnbuckles and had to clean or replace the brushes in my stock motor between heats. I'm looking at a 10B5M now as I'm told stadium trucks no longer rule (at least here).

I look forward to asking you several repeating questions

A lot has changed for the good. Brushless motors almost last for ever. You only need one lipo battery and simply recharge it between rounds. No more frequency conflicts or glitches with DSM radios, just turn it on and go, no worries.

2wd buggy will always be a strong class. You can't go wrong with a B5M, I have two of them.

Look for stadium truck to make a comeback. The two leading manufacturers have released new designs in the past couple of months. Short course truck seems to be fading people are moving to stadium truck.

What good gearing for the stock spur for a 8.5 ? This is a medium sized outdoor track. Also If I go to a 78 spur what would be good gearing? Thanks

Just built my 9 year old daughter a factory lite with a 17.5t Reedy motor and it is stupid fast! She's smoking my 10.5 team car around our sidewalk oval because her car is so easy to place. Car drives perfect and it's hurting my feelings.

Switch bodies with her. Maybe she won't notice.

No by all means. Some just feel it makes their buggy accelerate faster.

Top 5 in Expert in Stock Nationals didn't have pucks.

Its not necessary but I like them for other reasons than the weight savings.

Anyone know the difference in weight between the b5m and b5m lite chassis?
