The Associated one you linked says it's for 1/8" turnbuckles and doesn't have the B5 listed under compatibility. That's why I'm a little confused because I think AE started using more metric hardware with the B5.

Never use it, but on AE site it says that fit the B5M. (look in specs)

turnbuckles didn't change between the B4 and the B5 though...also don't put a lot into the compatibility on amain's site. While its good most of the time, its not perfect.

Default motor question

Just bought a tricked out b5m lite with pucks and am running stock. Noob. Currently have a lightly used reedy Mach 3 17.5. Wanted to get the right motor right out of the gate. Was looking at the fantom 17.5. Running Ocrc and a similar but smaller track locally. Is the fantom notably faster? Any good things about the reedy? Thx

The Reedy is an excellent motor. I think im at about 48 timing geared 72/31. There is room to play with it as well. Great thing about Reedy and OCRC is that many of the AE guys are local there. Sean C is out every now and then and is very quick in stock. Nick Wautlet runs mod but he's there every week and is very knowledgeable.

No problem. I asked Sean C from Reedy about the short stack and he said this:

"The 1s version is .7mm shorter stator and comes with 12.2mm rotor. Makes for really good rpm, straight speed is noticeably faster. Loses some punch and braking strength, also runs warmer. Some guys are inserting the 12.5mm rotor which should help those issues. Haven't tried it myself though, always just ran the standard motor."

Basically it has more rpm but loses torque...if you have a open, flowy layout I could see it being better if you spent the time to get it right. I have never messed with any of the short stack stuff myself so couldn't speak to it feel wise.

Yes the new Fantom FR motors are noticeably faster. But being a noob in the stock class, your speed/improvement/wins will not come from a motor that is 5% faster. It will come from improving your driving. You may actually be faster with the Reedy. However, the FR motors are the SMOOTHEST motors I have ever driven as well.

In other words, your Reedy will do you JUST fine. Worst case, if the motor were older, like a couple seasons old, a replacement rotor would likely wake it up.

Yeah - The smaller track where I am has a long single after a sharp 180 turn. I noticed some faster guys would clear the single for the whole heat. A few fast guys would barely be coming up to the top towards the end. Interestingly, I noticed some of the guys consistently making it had Ichargers. I only made it the first 4 or 5 laps. Then again I have a heavier, older b5m and probably should work on my gearing. Notwithstanding drawing the perfect line. However, in this example the jump was so close to the 180 turn most guys were coming almost from a dead stop... In any event, many situations like this. it's correct, being a noob I need to learn how to draw better lines. But, any help with the low end with motors would be extremely helpful.... Hopefully, a little extra motor may give me that umphh just to get to the top of similar jumps more often.... rant over thanks for reading....

Hard to tell without being there, but that may be in your race line.. could be as simple as you need to go a little wider on that corner? What causes the change after a few laps? Traction going away throughout the run or ? My buggy doesn't loose any power throughout a run at all. If the car can stand it, maybe go up a level on your punch setting? Also check ride height? I noticed real quick in 1:10 they don't jump well if right height isn't right.

Im definitely no expert lol. just my .02
