So is the feeling to go shorty on the mid motor over the square / saddle setup?

Based on my experience with the c4.2, each battery has its place and is worth owning/running. (Shorty felt quicker but I was considerably less consistent with it on tracks where we run clay compound tires. You, however, might make it work.) If I could only afford one, I'd go saddle/square, as that seems most consistent to me.

based on my limited mid motor experience, I think saddles would be the way to go. But, this is a new car and maybe it will be great with a shorty outdoors. All the other mid motor cars run locally need more weight IMO


These shorties are priced well and a few locals have bee using them without issue.

I wasn't there to see it but I am led to believe that Kody unleashed the B5m on the OC_RC modified club racers last night. With excellent results!

Im confused... To me on both cars why is the angled ball cup on the outside steering rod pointing toward the front of car rather than to the rear?
My reasoning is this; when your steering is hitting the stops that ball cup should be facing rearward so in effect it can reach around the rim and not rub on it due to hard turning forces.
Of course we have seen all the pics with it facing forward so there is another engineering reason to it but I dont get it......
Please 'splain Lucy?!

It is angled that way so the link will clear the shock at full lock.
