The square pack helps my car to get some more rear grip for sure

This is so wierd because there is lots of links here where they are selling stuff and that is against the rc tech rules.
And iam not aloud to put pics here about my carbon parts.
I think many would like to see them here.
Now i have made the rear shocktower but cant any pics here and an link i cant put here either.
So if any intrest to follow what iam doing out of carbon please pm me and ill send the link.
I think that is also against the rules..
Jerzi
Had the same issue with trying to sell my parts. Even had a thread that was simply showing the mods to my B5M, didn't even have a link to anything or an offer to sell them, and that still got taken down.

My experience is that the sideways shorty hooks up better than the square/saddles. Shorty makes the car lighter but puts more weight distribution back compared to front.

There's no need. This car was designed for lipo, so moving the battery forward and back should be all you need.

Some mod guys are adding weight.
Brass C & D blocks as well as the brass front bulkhead.

To each their own. Made more sense in the old cars designed around nimh. Nobody fast does it at our track.

Yeah I gotta say I run with some fast ae guys and none of them add weight. All they do is change the shorty position if they need it but we all normally run it all the way back or one thin pad behind battery.

I'm running that chassis and it's very nice. It takes off about 24 grams.
