Most people at my track are running Yokomo, Kyosho and some others. I think there are 2 AE's in 2wd buggy. That's another reason I went with it.

Im coming from a 22, so adding weight to make it work was the norm. Glad to see a car that doesn't need $100 in fake gold to work. Thanks

Don't know if this has been asked before...

What is the difference between the B5M Team kit rear arms, and the rear arms from the factory Lite kit? ( PN 91412 vs 91528 ).

Thank you!

Not quite sure, they may be the rear motor arms most were putting on the B5M to move the rear hubs forward?
That's it PN91412 is the B5 rear motor rear arms.

Yes they are labeled as B5 rear arms in the Factory Lite manual. What is the benefits of one vs the other?

The factory lite also contains B5 front arms. The rear arms shorten the weelbase and the B5 front arms are flat as opposed to gullwing.

Like I said above they give the ability to move the rear hubs 2mm more forward, tends to give the car a lil more rear traction. Most people were doing this along with the rear motor front arms (flat) and front tower which are also included in the lite kit.

No problem, that's what makes the lite kit popular. It includes what everybody has found to help the original car shine including the 3 gear tranny.

Spencer had his this weekend at AZ states. So it looks like AE has some of the kits. So soon, I would guess.

drove the Factory Lite for the first time this weekend. Made me remember why I loved my B5M before The car is just soooo good.

I don't have good 17.5 batteries yet and I know my esc and motor tune was off and I still managed to qualify 4th and be within .5 on the fast lap. On the stock setup with only the alum C and D blocks and Avid slipper

btw, 1522g weight (because I know all the cool kids need to know)

I do have one question. I bought the waterfall that has the fan mount in it. The stock body doesn't quite clear it right. For the guys who are running that setup, what body are you running?

one of the guys at our track runs the stock body with the fan mount waterfall and he has cut the back 3 inches or so off clear across and cut both sides out I think it looks good better than the finisher. finisher may perform well and have room but all I see when I look at mine is a Volvo station wagon. I don run that body anymore I am going to let my kid run it lol.
