I hear you on limited time. I try to get to the track as early as possible and do my testing before quals start.

Also definitely reccomend the AE app. RC Cheat Sheets app. Will help give you a guide of what tuning to try under limited timeframes.

I've had mine for awhile now but have only ran it a number of times. I'm just starting to test some things and possibly fine tune it. I just have a hard time leaving my stock M for some reason. I did however race it last week and was pretty happy with it.

Gents.
Just bought myself a kit to build. Looking for any tips you gents have gleaned in the last 603 pages and counting on RCTech for the B5M build. Going to run the car on medium traction clay dirt outdoors. 8.5turn motor. ANY SUGGESTIONS and TIPS on the build would be much appreciated. Thank you in advance.

Yes it is! Thanks to all for the distillation of all the knowledge on this car.

Got me some research to do.

Slash dad, I would recommend addressing the ball cup issue during the initial build. Chuck the ball studs in a cordless and spin them in some scotch brite and make sure they are free. Also when building turnbuckles, I used a drill to run the turnbuckles into the ball cups and then backed them out. Seems to make adjustments easier without ball cups popping off. Remember ball dif adjustment screw should be opposite the motor plate. Also if you are not using front clamp hexes and axles, use a dab of remove able loctite on the screw on the backside of the front axles... They like to back out.

Build slowly. Think about what you are doing, how things are suppose to go together and how they are suppose to act. Do not just slap it together. Don't RTR it.

Not necessarily necessary. You can check to make sure they are free before doing anything with a drill or scotch brite. My build had 0 issues with any ballcups or ballstuds.

Only worry about this if your ballcups cause binding on your ball studs.

Yea, I second this. I built my kit and never "prepped" the ballstuds at all and have had zero issues so far (knock on wood)

True.
You guys are lucky, I didn't have one arm that fell under its own weight. They were way too tight on mine. Anyone ever here of this pinch method? I can't see how pinching the cups would be the way to fix it... But maybe?
