So really the only thing special on that car for us guys that have a built up b5m already is the chassis that's factory milled out. I wonder how much it will be

The chassis and the HD rear axles are what I'm interested in. Hopefully the axles are stronger and the chassis is a little flexier. They even updated the set-up sheet.

The battery game is FAR FAR FAR more important than the motor game at the moment in spec racing. I can see 10%-15% increase in performance when I am running my batteries the special secret sauce way.... motor of the month? 1-2%.
What is "juicing batteries" all about?

same axles. alot of the info on the new car is copied from the old car. even says bigger front bearings but they are the same. if you look closley, the rear axles are the exact same. i guess they are just saying beefier compared to the b4

Basically you are discharging the pack at at least 20amps and then immediately charging it at say...40 amps. The discharge cycle puts heat into the pack and the 40amp charge charges the pack quick while keeping the heat in. The heat lowers the internal resistance of the pack which enables it to flow the "juice" much easier.

20amp discharge rate? sorry, that's a little too low for me.I'll continue to discharge at 40 sir.

and i thought charging my orion 4000 max charge 5c, charging at 20amps was scary and hella fast to charge. i never do anything special with my batts, just concentrate and driving clean the whole race instead of your batterys

Like with Racer, this normally comes into play in 17.5 when you need that power to make the jumps the entire race. Some tracks use really easy layouts and it might matter less. You have 11 second lap times, I assume your track is tiny.

seriously why waste your battery's long term life charging at 40amps just go get a 4.5t motor if you want more speed in Mod. Although personally I think theres a tipping point where to fast of a motor actually makes me slower, when i went from 6.5t to a 7.5t in 2wd buggy I was actually faster with the 7.5t but it may just be me, Im sure there are people who can control the throttle better.

you are incorrect. That makes no sense at all. Lowering the IR to go faster, when you can boost, turbo or use a lower turn motor to get speed, makes no sense at all. Matt, you really need to think these things through
