In real world driving I get more run time out of a 2200mah 3 cell than I do a 5200mah 2 cell. Not to mention it's HALF the weight.

Why would I want to spend $100 on a battery when I can use a $20 battery and buy new cars or hop ups with the savings?
3 cell bad idea. not legal for racing. if you dont like racing, dont buy a racing buggy like the b5m

My kit came with the new upgraded crush tubes for the steering axles..
Very smooth.....

Hmmm, I have a few 6S 5800's for my Trex 550 Pro DFC. Wonder if one of those would fit my B5M. I was also thinking I could have the fastest B5M at the track if I could figure a way to a Heli motor in it.

Even a motor from my little 450 DFC would be wicked fast.

That's funny. All the clowns around here that said people are doing something wrong. Turns out even AE agreed it wasn't right.

My XXX is a racing buggy and it's one of the best RC cars I've ever had. What's wrong with appreciating precision and finesse outside of a racetrack? Whats wrong with running a 3 cell at your local track outside of a race? I raced when I was younger, now I just want to drive. Been there, done that, moved on you know?

I think I might like the 5m because of it's aluminum chassis, something which gives a car a necessary weight and in the right place, low down. Technology allows for cars that are almost 'too' light. It seems like a thoroughbred and I like those kind of cars as long as they aren't exceedingly delicate like the Losi mini eight.

Anyway the only qualm I had was the batteries it would take. I like flexibility. In my B4 I've run everything from a 5200 hard case 2 cell, to a 2200mah 3 cell, to a 4500mah 3 cell, it fits them all.

Got my 5m out on the track for the first time tonight. Manage to get a 2nd in the main. Had 1st for most of the race but crashed couple times on the last lap and gave it up last minute. Most fun I've had racing in a long time.

Def think the mid motor is a faster car. I am getting much better lap times with the mid.

track had a decent amount of FT- Hard parts in stock. even got a alum top gear, alum D mount and inserts.
