We were discussing this. I think you'll see this more for guys running on lower bite tracks, but of course nothing is certain.

Adding weight to my older mid motor cars in the same areas made them quite better when grip was down.

I probably won't run my cars much this summer, but I'll end up getting a set and tossing them in my box.

TBH, by the time I really run 10th scale again, I'll likely be buying the FT cars and then have 4 cars sitting here :LOL:

I didnt horde these. I had them back ordered at a few different places and they all came off back order within a day. Most will be shared with others at my local track.

Here's the new Pro-Line Phantom body on my B5m. I don't know how I feel about it yet. I will be getting the Sweep body when it's in the US.

Not as bad as I thought.

What spray can/bomb color did you use?

Tamiya Light Blue with no backing color. I should have backed with white to get the color I was looking for I think...

Ok well bravo to sharing them with your locals vs up-charging your peers.

wow, only $70 to convert a MM to RM? That is not bad at all. When I get my MM, at least it will be cheap to go RM if I dont like it.

anyone got recent thoughts on the vehicle for loose track usage?

more talk around here about running 1/10 2wd buggies in a spec kind of class. And got a rumor of a local track possibly opening.

ours is pretty loose, when its watered its manageable when it dries out it is a total handful. last night back to back runs b4.2 and b5m same tires,motors,esc,servos. b4,2 was .3 quicker consistantly and i havent driven the b4.2 in 2 months since getting the b5m. big difference in feeling, the b5m i feel like i am tiptoeing around trying to keep the rear under it, the b4.2 i am balls to the wall.
