IMO, based upon the motors / gearing / etc you've mentioned, you got something else going on somewhere. Timing isn't going to affect your temps that much.

I'd reset all electronics to default. And take the pinion off your motor and check your car for good free spinning movement on all wheels, etc.

Always better to get help from a local knowledgeable person who can physically assist.

I am looking for one too. The money I have set aside is burning a hole in my pocket! If they don't get more B5Ms in stock soon, I may just pick up the B5R instead. I can have that in hand in 10 minutes if I get impatient!

What Jesse said. I had my transmission out yesterday for another reason and I was pretty amazed at how freely it spun. Make sure all of your bearings are spinning freely.

I contacted AE customer support just to ask if they had an estimate as to when more B5m kits would be released. Here is the response...

Quote:
Thank you for contacting customer support. The kits should be coming in towards the end of this month. Unfortunately, we fell a little behind but, we are starting to get caught up. We apologize for the delay.
Name omitted to protect the innocent!

Sad panda...

Let's hope they are just being conservative and we will still see this thing starting to hit shelves in another week or so like the hobby retailer sites suggest.

I don't myself, but some people do, it's a matter of opinion.
But I race indoor only though.

Been out of the loop for a while, so can you elaborate on why people punch homes in the tires? I image it is partly due to moisture?

Back in the day we used to drill holes in the rims, but we didn't use foam and our tires were never glued so it wasn't as big of an issue.
