Guys,

I called Team Associated on the B5M Factory Lite if they have them or not. They said they were supposed to have them easily by now, but this Shipping Ports Strike thing got in the way.

They don't know if it is in the USA yet on land either. Or where in terms of how close in the waters type of status.

Son of a B!!!! I'm trying to wait for this kit, but I don't want to wait much longer. I may go with the Hobby Pro PRS1 if it doesn't come soon.

There was some good news last week. The dock workers unloaded the standard b5m kits that were due 3 months ago, and they are shipping out from AE now.

I would pick up a regular kit over the PRs1

For what reasons? Only thing I don't like is the tight configuration with all the electronics, oh and parts support, which is kind of a big deal.

Good to know, thank you. I just have the go ahead to spend the funds and I want to buy it before she changes her mind! Plus I hate waiting. Knowing that I can get some decent hop ups plus the light chassis all in one package means I can't settle on the regular one.

I was really considering the Durango DEX210v2, I liked the DEX408 way better than my RC8.2e, but I always get sucked into associated vehicles.

Ensure you have proper/broken in rear tires. Other than that, here are things to try:


open cell foams in rear tire
3+1 toe/antisquat
shim rear hubs all the way forward
move battery all the way rear
27.5 weight oil/1.6 piston/green spring/26.5mm exposed shaft rear shock
longer front shock shaft exposed (or verify to 20.5mm)
lay rear shock down to inside hole on tower
0.5 degree rear hub inserts
cut the outside braces on waterfall mount
loosen screws that mount brace to transmission case
2mm on plastic rear camber mount
brass c mount
