Can't wait for the B5m to come out! I just sold my B4.1 and some tires from it for $100 so that will help as the kit with tax at my local hobby shop will be about $280. Then I need to spend $30 on a shorty pack from valuehobby.com. Cool thing about my Lhs is you get a free month of practice with a purchase of any kit.

Does anyone have a good idea how long of a sensor cable is needed for the B5M? I run a B4.2 now and I will obviously need a longer sensor cable and would like to have it ready to go by the time my kit arrives. Using my 4.2 to get a rough estimate, I came up with approx 160mm. Does that sound about right?

If you already have that length than use it. you can always bundle the extra wire and zip tie it. Once you get the car measure it and get the right size. Sensor wires are not that expensive

Its pretty cool how there is a channel in the tub to run a flat wire sensor under the battery pack and back to the motor.

What I meant was I used my B4.2 chassis (rear motor) to "estimate" where the ESC and motor would be on a B5M and measured the length. I don't have anything longer than 100mm right now, which is why I need to get a new one.

well a shorty is what square pack is what 70mm + 5mm fpr the thickness of the box, you need another 30-50mm to plug into the esc. then what another 50-60 to exit the battery box and hook into the motor. So at least 175-200mm is what I would guess.

well my math guesstimate was close, lol. I mainly use 175 or 200 for most applications. 175 for inline type configs.

Man o Man guys! When do you think there will be some suspension arms available for these cars? What the heck are the RM guys doing that may have possibly already broken theirs?

Wooooo just preordered the B5m from Tower Hobbies, so hopefully I'm one of the few that get the first set of shipments. I just ordered the 70c smc shorty lipo has anyone had experience with this battery or any of their shorties?

If you can manage to break them I just walk into the shop and buy new ones. Plenty of spares in a well managed shop.
