Thanks Sean! I know on page 1 there is a Q and A about that, but I wasn't certain with running B5 control arms on a B5m if that still applied.

This answers that, thanks again for your help

Has anyone switched between lrp FLW and Orion r10.1 on their B5M and can offer any opinion on brakes and power?

I guess you can make out the chair if you really scrutinize it....I'm sticking with the midget version of a human Yoda. That works better for me.

That guy on the shirt is really him. Have any of you seen the back of the shirt? Can't recall the exact wording, but it's something like "If Jesus came back as a RC car it'd be as a B5M".

I know this is a little off topic but I think I just pee'd a little.

Default new to 1/10 buggy, b5m lite kit - electronic selection

Hello All,

I apologize if I break any rules of posting on this forum and if this is repetitive.

I am new to posting on forums and in the RC scene, well I have 6 months under my remote driving at OCRC or IERC. I started off with a RC10B4.2 and love it for how I use it and drive it, at times (which isn't pro like at all I'm constantly flipping and doing donuts but my confidence is building) I feel it can be quite a bit slower than the other drivers out there so I move out the way.

I love this hobby so much that I purchased a B5M Factory Lite kit. I was pretty nervous putting it together, being that it was my first kit and all - luckily I found some great videos on YouTube and helpful information on RC forums where they help people like me out and the kit came out pretty nicely if I say so myself.

My question to keep this short is I need help in selecting my electronics I see and believe most pro driver or advance drivers putting 6.5 turns or 5.5 turn motors. I just don't know if that is going to be to much motor for me. Can you please help guide me in selecting some electronics that will work together (Servo, ESC, Motor, Receiver).. I was waiting for RCX to perhaps purchase all my electronics there, first time going to a RC expo... If I was ever to join a race what for armatures/beginners what motor type would I need to be under?

Thanks in advance!!
