I just picked up a B5M. Looking through this thread it doesn't seem like many people like the stock slipper. I have a spare V2 slipper, would that be better than the stock one? Will it fit?
Thanks

It seems like a tight fit trying to jam an r10 esc plus a receiver into that little space
Here are a couple different configurations Ive tried. Dont mind the car...just a little dirty.


PS - With the inline setup...before anyone asks. The wires are not actually tight ; )

This is what everyone did the first week they were available. Flip the plate, then counter sink it.

Or just order one from one of the several companies making motor plates. AE's plate was in stock for...4 days or so.

I bought the case, cover and gear from my LHS yesterday then ordered the plate from Exotek. Might be an option for you if you want it now.

Does anyone know the sensor wire length that is best to use for the b5m with the electronics in the 'standard' positions?

Getting ready to order a tq flat wire and wanted to know the best length to get.

Thanks

IMO i would get the reedy flat wire. The one time i tried a TQ sensor wire i didnt like it. The plug was super tight and the wire was flimsy. I had to ruin it to get it out of a motor.
