I guess it was my fault for asking a simple question wondering how your changes effected your car for some food for thought for myself and maybe others who change our setup. I didnt say OMG Im gonna do that because obviously every track and driving style is different. Flame me for being curious i suppose..no big deal smh

I know this might be a random question but have searched multiple threads for dogbone/dogbone length/puck length/etc... and didn't see it.

Can someone measure, or know off hand, the distance from the MIP pucks pin to the center of the hole on the dogbone&hub combo?

EDIT - went to local hobby store, looks like 65mm stamped on them in the bags

i know this can't be truly answered with anything but pure speculation, but based on historical timelines, can anyone guess when an update for this truck is due.

i have a history of buying a truck and then literally weeks later the next version is announced/comes out.

this truck has been out for quite some time, do you think an update is coming soon? Maybe to cut from TLR's sales of the 3.0?

The B5m Lite came out in April last year. AE normally works on 1 year to 18 months cycles. Just speculating, because nothing has been announced. That being said, I would not expect anything major to change aside from maybe the shocks.

Hi guys I just got my b5m together. I am running smc shorty pack sideways but it is really tight getting the body on because the wires from the battery protrude so much that I have to really kink them to get the body on where it needs to be. Do any companies make a 4mm 90degree connectors so they are more of a low profile?

Reedy makes some low profile bullets. Or you could take a standard connector and cut the top off and re-solder making your own low profile.

I desoldered my bullet connectors and and used a dremel to cut a notch in the cup where the wire solders into. Then I set the wire at a 90 degree angle and soldered back up.

That's a great idea, thank you a1. That would definitely give me more clearance and look clean I will pick up some heat shrink and do it this weekend. Thanks again for the input guys.

Yeah, low profile bullet connectors. They sell them everywhere
