actually now that i take a closer look i see that the chassis cradle has to be cut for there to be enough room for the motor and the x factory chassis has all carbon chassis rails/ craddle.

Has anyone used velcro straps to hold down the battery? I just bought one with a custom fan mount and If I want to keep that setup, I can't use the factory hold down, if you are using velcro straps, can you post a pic? thanks!

Try scotch VHB double sided tape. It's the same stuff you get with go-pro or replay cameras. But the battery will stick there permanently till you yank it off.

I didn't want to go that route if I can avoid it, I wanted to try some kind of velcro strap setup.

I thinking of doing it cos I want the flex in the chassis (by removing battery brace) for a bumpy track. But taping lethal lipo to your car permanently isn't a good option.... Hehe

I have run my lipo in my B5m double sided taped in for over a year. I have not had one problem.

what would be the key to adequate B5M performance on mid traction outside track?
brass C and D mounts? overall weight shift to the rear eg rear battery placement? something else?

Toyman, what kit are you running and/or what kind of parts changes have you done? When we know that we can point you in the right direction.

I am running B5R converted to B5m so basically the original B5M kit.
Actually, the dilemma I am facing is whether to convert back to B5R to run outdoors or try to use B5M.
Given my main concern during winter carpet season was how to get LESS traction, I assume B5M might have decent traction when set up properly.
My track is hard-packed dirt (kinda clay but not the clay US tracks are built from)

Oh yay!
Well the few who race on carpet will be excited, for the rest of us, the lite kit will be plenty good, well those who still race on dirt aka real off-road.
