Two good solid choices are the Reedy Wolfpack and the Promatch options. Personally, I prefer the Orion because they have never puffed or complained to me. Just work perfectly.

The Pro-Match 4800 shorties looks like a good option especially since its in stock.

Do you guys think the Pro-Match 3500mah pack will be enough? It's 60 grams lighter than the 4800 pack. I'm coming from 1/8 scale and weight loss seems to be very beneficial in this class from what I've been reading here.

Unless your running 20 or 30 minute mains, the 3500 will be plenty!
I personally have a 3000mah pack and I make 8min mains with zero fade!

Just finishing up the build on my new B5M.

I'm running B5R straight front arms and shock tower.

Where should I start with camber and toe settings?

Default B5m

Best bet is start with manual setup and drive it. Then when you make changes, you know what to compare it to. + on the B5 front tower and arms.

Thumbs up wow!

Ran my new B5m on the carpet for last weekends races. All is I can say is wow. Im sorry to say but it puts the schumacher KF to shame as far as handling. Also durability seems better. I know i clipped a corner and drove away clean from it where the I would have been replacing the front end of the schumacher.
Cant say enough about this car.

For those that have broken front bulkheads, were you using the stock plastic front hinge pin brace or the aluminum one?

The new Reedy 25c Wolf is the pack to have for mod.
