Wallie may not have done well at the Reedy race, but if there was a best whip contest.. He would rock it.

I know HOW to whip an RC car, but I don't have the BRAIN to make it all come together in that short period of time.

Vito, the most notable parts on the new car (in my opinion) are:

- 3 gear transmission
- HD rear axles
- Light chassis

If it still comes with the VTS slipper, that thing is pretty heavy, many run an eliminator, but I like the triad/nova style one myself.

Probably a set of pucks, an overboard charger and an infinite amount of the best batteries you can buy.

I don't mind asking the naive question.. If this is the 'next release' of the B5m and it is being sold as a "lite" version catering towards stock class, would this car not be good for mod?

Do you find the slipper to be useful for stock, other than protecting the diff? I never really have.
