Sounds like your bottoming out in the rear give your upper spring retainers a couple twists to add some preload or maybe go up a touch in shock oil weight to slow down the shock if that doesn't work go up a spring rate

Not sure if this is out of place to ask -- but I've been wanting to pick-up a new kit and Massdrop is currently offering what looks like a pretty solid b5m bundle.

Anyone see any red flags in this list? Been looking into it and everything seems decent, but Iím also still kinda new to this.

I personally would not want that. mostly because the cause has been discontinued and is missing a ton up updates.

If it's a great price it wouldn't be too bad. The only Savox motor I have seen ran WAY hot. If I were serious about running 17.5 I wouldn't want to be running a 25C battery either. Also, if MC Ions aren't the tire of choice at your track then they aren't very useful either. I guess what I'm saying is we need more info about your situation.

They have it up for $499 for all of it, with the "lowest" at $449.99. Which seems really good? At least good enough to ignore the stuff I wouldn't use, like the Ions, which look better matched to indoor clay than our local outdoor dirt track.

I could find very little on Savox motors, their servos are everywhere but I didn't even know they made motors -- so that's very helpful thank you. Less worried about the battery as I have others that would be better in the long run.

Also didn't realize the team kit is discontinued. I'll have to think about it more I guess, the price is pretty appealing though.

Thanks for the feedback guys!

Just like the 22 3.0 is for those who own a 2.0

Unlike TLR. The good thing for AE guys, the CE isn't a "new" car. Meaning you can buy a Team or Lite car pretty cheap and it's still basically the current platform. Good deals can be had for those not absolutely wanting/needing the CE car.

Yes, it's excellent. I currently run one with only the heavy chassis, aluminum hubs (given to me, I guess they look cool but aren't really worth it), and aluminum steering cranks. The car handles very well and is easy to tune.

Not to say I'm not thinking about other options, the 22 3.0 is a track monster and the XB2 looks great as well.

Take a look at Bumpsteer. Also check your shock package to make sure everything is equal.

Default B5M FL or CE?

Really like in f the B5M. So which is the Best Buy right now for a semi-novice who wants a decent car. To club race Track will be outdoors and medium traction.

CE version for sure. It has all the items of the FL version minus the lightened chassis and comes with extra tuning items. Both 3 and 4 gear transmission options are included. If racing outdoors in medium traction, the 4 gear might be the better option.
