Holy crap, I take a couple days off and the train falls off the tracks in here

1. No you won't see any sub forums.
2. Read the first page.
3.If you're answer isn't on the first page, simply ask, Even it's likely been asked and answered somewhere in the last 12,000 posts.
4. One of the 2,3,4,5 or 10 active members in here will politely answer even the most redundant questions.
5. Forward all complaints until September to Cpt.A, it's 1/8 scale season for me

question for your rc10b5M guys.

If I wanted to pick up say the rc10b5M or the soon to be released "lite" version or whatever its called, what parts are needed specifically to convert it to a rear motor when needed?

Now, I know they have a conversion, but what I am wondering is are there things that you probably don't need from that, or are better not getting like say (this is just an example) the front a-arms, etc.

I am basically looking for so to find if there is value to just getting the parts needed separate if there are things that aren't needed.

Based on the classes this would be potentially used for, it would be outdoor rough 1/8 tracks loose (so the B5 rear setup here I am thinking) and then indoor carpet.

The former probably mod class, later stock.

I currently have a durango dex210 that i am happy with so far, but as is my curse I am always looking around at new things, and I do have AE in the heart.

Another newbie question.
Are 'hard' parts better and why? I've got a pretty stock B5M and want to order some spare parts.

Also looking for a screw set, thinking of the rcscrewz kit.

Thanks

Correct. Exotek and a few other companies make these nice fancy wing buttons they look really sharp. Also, i think jconcepts just came out with an alum. and carbon fiber wing mount system that looks awesome.

I think "better" is very much a personal preference thing and I believe you would need to be a pretty darn good driver to tell the difference.

The hard parts might be a little easier to break though, especially in colder weather.

On high grip the hard parts give a more precise feel and reaction, but they are more fragile. So if you crash frequently they may not be the best option. For the money the protek rc brand ti screws arent to bad, but they are not of the highest quality. Lunsford would be the best quality imo but they are not cheap. I think they are around 100 bucks for the whole car.

IMO, just by the conversion. It's cheap compared to the B5>B5M conversion and you'll actually use all the parts, most likely. I can't think of anything you wouldn't use, other than maybe the 3-4 dollar esc/receiver bridge.

Locally on med. grip indoor, nobody uses hard parts here. If you run on high bite/really high bite some of the guys who run on those types of tracks might suggest specific parts for you.

cool thanks.

I take it no one runs the mid car on the loose conditions I mentioned?

I am curious if the new light mid car with its chassis milling if it would have more flex. not saying it would, but be curious.

Are you using the right tires? I can't imagine a buggy laid out like that could have a lack-of-steering issue.
My conversion kit only arrived after the race, during the weekend the B5M was almost straight from the box, except for a Phantom body, LMR wing and some X-rings and springs.

With the B5M Lite having RM arms and tower, those wouldn't be needed to convert to RM, but they are good spares to have.

Cool thanks, i'll have to give AE's site a look to see what the vehicle has that is diferent than the B5M Regular. I am assuming they have a good breakdown of the difference there.
