We have a local kid in the region that's pretty quick, he was running the xfactory chassis and square pack. He's quick with it. This was in the blown out hard packed dusty point and shoot track.

Yeah, if I was to run outdoors again and stayed with MM, I would probably look into the XF chassis. But, I have a hard time recommending MM with $200 in upgrades to a new driver on a budget. I can spend the money if I need to. However, I dont expect others to do that. So when I critique cars, I normally do it as the come out of the box. I ditched stock buggy because of all the crap involved. It was getting silly.

How are you following the Worlds Warm Up and where did you see these photos? I've Google'd a few searches but did not find photos of anything like you described. (Sorry if it is someplace obvious, been a long week at work....)

The xfactory chassis needs certain things to make work. The light weight is cool, but the flex and where it flexes is not in the testing I've done. YRMV

Sorry if I started this, didn't mean to go off topic.

I have a B5 rear motor that I could run but would rather get the B5M going better. Was just wondering if it would be a lot easier for me.

I'll keep working with the 5M and get more practice time on it.

All of you can't get your heads around the fact that you dont need half these upgrades and bling to compete, you don't need the motor of the month, the battery of the month, the Ti axles to compete.

All most people need is track time and tires.

So any thoughts on using the bi-metal MIP drives with a mod motor? I can get them for a few bucks more than the shiny and just wondering if its a bad idea, or if they may be to weak?

Bi-metal isn't always the best metal... For mod stick with the shiny.

Anyone making a better plastic puck than the oranges? Feel like I have to change my pucks after every 3 rounds of racing in mod with an 8.5. They really don't hold up at all for mod.

Check out Scotty Ernst on Facebook, he has posted quite a few photos in an album there.

Do most people run blinky with a mod motor and gear up if needed etc? Or do you use any esc timing? Thanks. I have a 8.5 geared 23/78 in blinky and seems to go good. Just wondering what most people tend to run. Thanks.
