I use a battery strap. Works just fine. Schelle FTW.

Mine stays just fine, unless I do my motor wires really short, then it pulls off when I take out the battery. Just clean the chassis with motor spray, and on the esc, then let it dry. Then just put the 3M sticky tape on.

Then if you want it to stick even better heat up the sticky tape. This time around I ran my motor wires long and I haven't had one issue.

Use shoe goo to keep your electronics securely to the chassis. It's strong, don't have to worry about the electronics coming loose, and easily removable.

Default Almost!

Getting very close to having my b5m built. Glued up some tires yesterday, one front tire spins like it has a shotgun shell in it. Got a big pump knot in it. Using the AKA red closed cell inserts. I may have got some of the side wall glued down also. Are they ruined? Hate that little flexible tube that comes with the AKA tire glue. Had to use a hypodermic needle to apply. The push on needles work well. Use a little glue to hold the needle in place. I kept knocking it off by squeezing bottle to hard. Might need to go to 19 gauge. Is tire ruined? Please tell me it can be saved!

From MIP's Facebook page:

Quote:
MIP B5M Three gear transmission had a flawless outing as it won it's first club race in preperation for this year's JC Nationals! Rudy Rico piloted the B5M commenting that the car had much more acceleration and felt as if driving a rear motor with the same launch but none of the ill effects of having a ballast weight to deal with and all the benefits of a mid motor vehicle. Definitely the best of both Worlds. Looking forward to this weekend.

And for all the guys asking about the weight differential is about 8 grams (tad more than one of the square weights we use).

So what "inline" setup is the one to use? I only know of the Hartson one he used at TRCR or Wild Cherry's? I'm thinking of WC's just because I can use my battery strap.

The Hobbywing has been flawless for me.

I have been running the Hobbywing V3.1 for over a year now and been very happy with them.

I see you are sponsored and understand where your coming from, but did you test others other before hand? I assume using the hobbywing motors too?

I personally run the R10 and have had no complaints. It has a great feel to it. I have never owned, but have run a friends car with a rs gen2 and it just didn't feel as nice- as others have stated- kind of like driving an on/off switch. As far as the R10 goes the 160amp version is the full racing version, 120amp being more for stock/super stock. They do have a newer R10.1 that I believe is 180amp.. just fyi

[/QUOTE]

The offset bushings raise and lower the spindle height to give more or less steering in certain spots in the corner. I was just curious if anyone running med to high indoor clay had tried them. As far as your tire I would sauce em to soften them up and if it's still way bad I would cut tire fix foam and 're glue.
