Can we not talk about the new TLR and agree the quality of their stuff is really poor? I have nothing but bad memories of my 22s and SCTE.....both garbage. Even if they have the best design known to man they will probably make those cars out of recycled tin. Lets move on.

Somewhere around page 750...a little past. I bet you could go to the first page and see when the pic of the Lite was posted. That may help. Around Page 700 we started talking about the 3 gear tranny.

Looking to use the slipper eliminator on the B5M 17.5 stock blinky racing. Any pros and cons? How does it wear on the diff having no slipper. Thanks for any info.

The battery compartment looks cool and AE could be there with a few minor tweaks if they wanted too. AE can now look at that car and make some changes if they look to be good changes. Nice to see updates, it pushes all manufacturers which gives us all great products. It was interesting to hear Frank Root talk about the benefit they saw from the 3 gear to 4 gear.

New B5MFL comes with all sorts of goodies. One upgrade that would be nice and worth an extra 10 bucks in the kit are the x rings and machined pistons that would make them top notch nothing better shock package from the box. Kashima and V2's not really needed but would take it over the top but cost prohibitive for sure.

Good post

The 22 3.0 is scary similar to the b5m. Like, a copycat you could almost call it.

In general shape maybe but the suspension geometry is extremely different.

I went all tlr cars recently because the latest gen of AE cars werent working out for me...

Maybe when they include the nice kashima shocks new springs, xrings, and less plastic ill reconsider. No matter what i do with it it just doesnt fit my driving style...

lol, I said the next car would probably have the updated shocks....and it does. Otherwise, pretty boring


lol, both flat and gulwing arms? both 2 pad and 3 pad slippers? And the coolaid front wing? Updated shock bodies, but crappy eclip shafts and pistons, meh. And a price tag of 325....so ae included more stuff and charged you for it all.....not hating, I think they could have done better on the shocks. ditch all the extra tuning parts and include the machined pistons and v2 shafts.
