Yup, part #ASC90001B.

Both the B5 and B5M won the 2014 RC Car Action Readers' Choice for Electric Buggy and Editors' Choice for Car of the Year!

Narrowed composite tub chassis with centralized mass, optimized motor position, metric hardware, and fits R.O.A.R.-approved 2S saddle packs, 2S short packs, and 2S square packs

Factory Team V2 12mm Big Bore threaded aluminum shocks with 3mm shock shafts and updated O-rings for improved smoothness

Factory Team VTS (Variable Torque multi-plate Slipper) with three drive surfaces and high-resolution spring

New transmission has stronger gears, precision ball bearings, and a 14 carbide ball differential for increased life and torque capacity

New front suspension features heavy-duty steering and caster blocks, while the insert system allows for easy caster and trailing axle adjustments

Adjustable front suspension mount angle kick-up options of 25 deg. and 30 deg. are included

One-piece front axle/hex adapter and larger front wheel bearing for added durability

Heavy-duty lubricated ball cups and optimized ball studs allow for maximum suspension travel while reducing binding and friction

B5 clear body and wing included.

Better driving skills is a joke we can skip.
I put the aluminum front bulkhead on and broke 2 front chassis plates within a month. Had never even seen a broken one before that. Took it off 2 months ago and havent broken another plate in since.

I have been down the Xray road, car is the best build ever however is not even close to the driveability of a Associated or Kyosho. The parts with xray cars must be lined with 24k gold as well when you look at the prices. Diff rebuild is 80.00 or buy a whole new diff for 71.00. The ONLY thing i enjoyed with the car was the build.

My $300 xray runs the same lap times as my $1200 B5M did.
