Associated has finally added a date to their site for the b5m, about as official as it gets but contradicts the rc box.com interview

In fact, there might not be one that will work aside from the little alum t handled one.
How about the RDRP Ultra Multi Wrench?

Default In the interview this was a weird answer

As for the arms, either will go with either motor configuration, we just put one set on each car to show they’re both available as tuning options. It should be noted, though, that each has a specific front shock tower to accommodate shock leverage.

The answer was not one is better for one platform or another but basically we don't know which is better and you might have to buy both.

I remember when JQ said wings and bodies do not need wind tunnel testing.
lol

Well if they're shipping a specific one with each kit that would seem to indicate that they think 1 is better for each.

Just like anything else tuning related you might have to expirement. I mean how many people still run the box setup?

Those seem cool but the cross member strikes things (arms, edge of chassis, etc.).

I thought that answer was a little... - I'll say not well thought out. If that's the thinking, they should ship both cars with both sets of arms and shock towers. I mean, the Centro uses straight arms, so why not go with that on both cars??

EDIT: The answer was not well thought out. Was the design well thought out/tested, or is the design the same as the answer... Hmm, doubts begin to...

why don they just ship the cars with every part available including the alum and "hard" plastic pieces........ I am sure part of it was to show them off. But he also said Kody worked on the MM quite a bit and Kody came on here and gave a reason for the gulwing arms on the MM. So I think it was both. To show off the new MM and gulwings and as Kody said, there is a performance reason. But like what was stated above. For a given track you might switch them. Maifield sometimes ran the straight arms on his sc10.2 and sometimes ran the gulwing. I am sure they will both have the place between the 2 cars.
