Think I might end up getting the M after all. And before anyone ask yes, this is simply because of the article about MM taking over. Haha

I converted one of my RM cars last night. Sadly a few screws were missing so I will need to hunt for some in my rc piles. I am looking forward to running it back to back against my RM car for comparison. Now, I need a body and wing. Also, I built the car with the f/r RM car arms. The MM conversion overall went ok. The fit and finish was not great. Many of the screws that mounted the plastics to the chassis had screw holes that didnt line up. So I had to flex and manipulate several screws to get them in.

I have changed just the inserts too and could not tell a whole lot of different from all 3 changes being made in tandem. With only the inserts changed, you are running a longer wheelbase, and a more aggressive ackerman setup. (less ackerman washers = less aggressive steering).

I am going to run the 3mm on my car because....something is wrong with the 4mm inserts. My bearing barely function with them, yet they are smooth in the +3.

I just put on flat arms and shock tower and switched to 3mm inserts to try at the warehouse so if I make it tonight I'll let you know what the difference I felt

sounds good. I am looking forward to running MM. I tried the TLR and didnt care for the edge of my seat driving. I am hoping the MM B5 work well indoors on medium bite. Plus the new mist system at w3 seems to keep the track consistent.

God those are ugly mills. I'd definitely polish those bad boys up a bit.

It looks from pictures that it's just the stock plate with some weight milled out.

Wonder if I could take my stock plate to a machine shop

Personally I rather see the finned design come back.

Well I'm FAR from the best driver but the warehouse has awesome traction now even if it does get super humid I'll take it. Even with my limited driving skills the b5m hooks up great. You gonna run stock or mod? Only a few of us run the mm in stock but I still love how it handles

We used a set of those fancy scales for weighting the car at each wheel.

Turns out if you go with the inline short battery ?

Whether you mount the esc in front or rear of battery ?

Same weight distribution...

Also will share the same weight distribution as the RB6 & TLR 22 when using inline short pack.

So ?

Get the battery forward and loose the spaghetti look & weight from having all that wire.

I plan to run mod with it, but for now I will run 17.5, just because i wanted to compare the 2 cars. I am still trying to decide what mod motor I want. Probably a reedy, and somewhere between an 8.5 and a 10.5. I just sold a reedy 8.5 /face palm
