This is kinda crazy. I was able to drop another 22 grams off the car. I normally run for 5 minutes and my temps are 160-165. Today we were doing 7 minute heats and my motor only got up to 135 degrees. I was pretty shocked. I was able to turn the timing up 2 degrees on the motor and temps got up to 150. My car should be close to the 1500 mark i think this week with the lighter battery.......maybe dropping the weight helps

Thanks BillPear for all the help!!!

Had an awesome weekend with the car. Got a hold of a few sets of b5 rear arms and the car was awesome. I think with flat fronts and the RM tower it would be even better. Hartsons car was amazing it appeared to be so easy to drive through the corners. If you are rolling the throttle on you shouldnt have any problems though. Awesome car and made for a fun a main

I've been having trouble with heat with my B5ms. I have a car for both stock and mod. I haven't seen a whole lot about that trouble in this thread but I did see where dropping weight has made it better especially in stock. My stock comes in at almost 1600 grams but I have it geared at 29/75 which is pretty conservative compared to others and with 30degrees of motor timing in blinky mode. So I don't quite get why it's getting hot. Is it the weight? I ran the same setup on my 4.2 and it used to come off just warm. I don't see how some guys are running gearing like 69/32 with 17.5 and not getting way too hot? I'm running on an indoor track that isn't big but it isn't tight. Even with my mod car I'm running a Reedy 7.5 with gearing at 21/81 and it will come off at 185 and that's with stock timing at 20 degrees. I just saw Maifields latest setup and he's running the Reedy 7.5 gearing at 23/81 with 0 degrees of timing. Does that mean he retarded the timing on the motor from the stock 20 to 0? Or is 0 in reference to the stock 20? If that makes any sense lol. Any tips are really appreciated. My 17.5 is also a Sonic Mach 2.

Default "hard" parts

Can I assume that "hard" parts would be lighter with more carbon content?

Down to 1530g running weight with a few alu screws, alu top shaft and 4000maH shorty. Pretty happy with that.

Combination of weight and lack of airflow. Try getting more airflow first.

WC runs on tiny tracks with super high bite. If that is not what your track is like disregard his advice 90% of the time. He says this stuff to get a reaction out of some. Its all fun and games but don't get sucked in. He has opinins.....but we all have options.
