Is that the 17.5. If so you lucked out. Mines on back order due to the damn Chinese New Year. Evidently their shipment of stators got delayed because of it.
I can't wait for mine.

Yup17.5, I ordered it about 2-3 weeks ago and they were waiting on a shipment. Just got it on Thursday and installed it last night. I'm going to start with 69/30 then maybe bump up to 31 but we will see.

Which length motor sensor wire do you guys use when routing it under the battery tray? Looks like 200mm will be plenty long enough but I'd like to get the shortest one possible for a cleaner routing. I'm running 3 gear trans and my wire plugs into the ESC very near the channel that runs under the tray.

Everybody here is running 36t with that 69t spur and the motor comes off a 6 min heat with 105 degrees

I ordered mine on 2/6, so maybe I'll luck out this week and it will show up. I was told 32/72 was optimal gearing for this motor. I was planning on trying 30/69 as well though.

We sell those at the track. They are very fast. We recommend 69/32. I'm expecting our batch this week along with our 5000mah 100c shorties. Their new packs have good punch and very high capacity while being relatively light.

You stock the works editions? That's awesome and you have some lucky customers!

I ordered mine on 2/9/16 and it was shipped out on 2/17.

Troy Schroeder From Fantom said that he thought that either 69/31-32 would be the sweet spot. I had them set the timing as I figured they know their motors best and it would be a perfect starting point.

Have you seen the YouTube video where a guy shows how to use a multimeter to set your timing the best when you don't have a motor analyzer?

I picked up the SMC 4000mah 100c packs and can't wait to try it all out. I also had a boat load of stuff done including lay down trans, CF chassis motor plate and shock tower. Should be around 1520-1530 in weight. I also just purchased a bunch of different tires including 2.2 and 2.4 to try everything out. Also waiting for RC Shox tuning kit to come but also pre-ordered their Flo-Control pistons.

I've been re-building it all since I've been off of my feet. Prior to this I was pretty heavy and my rear end wanted to slide out on turns. I'm excited to get this thing re-dialed and hit some club races.

I'm trying out the new Tekin Gen 3 motor this week. These are the fast motors at my track now.

Is the standard or RPM version of that Gen 3 the hot ticket for the B5M?

RPM version and I'm getting the Hi Torque rotor for extra low end grunt.

A few guys tried these motors and they are very happy. I'm gonna try to run it this Wed if not Saturday.

Stock class is the new mod class... Motors vary GREATLY so that means if you have $$$ you can buy speed. Pretty "spec" class huh?
