Yes,

I run V3.1 with the V10 10.5 Turn on small technical indoor track and V10 8.5 on all the other tracks. On the larger indoor track I run I may try the V10 7.5 for a little more power if needed, but can't go wrong with this combo in mod.

Makes sense- I was primarily thinking of the car while jumping and in the air. So in your experience did the 3 gear mid-motor torque the car rearwards for on power push?

Just for the F-of it I bought a B5R with everything you could imagine just to try out to see if I really liked MM beter. It was interesting. My track has incredible traction. Its sugared bluegroove. It was 95 today. Days like this any tire will work. I ran th B5R and was able to run the exact same fast laps but had to drive the wheels off of it. I found the MM car to be much easier to drive and I was way more consistent. The rear motor car is well under 1500 grams while the MM is 1550 or so. I ran the same tires, motor, ESC....I tried hard to get them even. Both wheelied at the start.....etc etc. Once you learn to drive MM I just do see while you'd drive an RM car.

I just wanted to share. I've been doing a lot of testing. I also found that I'm .4 faster with my B5M than my RB6M.

Post #8266 shows they will be ok. I took them off just to be safe when I switched my car over. 13.5 "superstock" is really fun. I'm looking forward to racing that class this winter.

I run a 1258tg in all my rigs. Very fast and plenty reliable in my opinion. Never had an issue. I run a M12 radio and have to turn it down most times cause it's too fast.

I talked to a MIP driver about this. He said the issue is mainly in the bones snapping. Often they will use the alum Pucks with shiny bones for 13.5
