what are people's thoughts currently on running square lipo packs and when and where to use them?

I was under the impression they are pretty much always used in mod and never used in stock. We've been running shorties in our 17.5 from the start.

yeah would get most of its duties in mod I am thinking if I went this route, but I'd be fine in stock here too if it helps with a bit more bite in general.

Insomnia!!!! I don't struggle with rear grip at all in 17.5 at the 510. I struggled to get the steering I want the way I want it.

Hey Guys! I am still running a B5RM car. I want to try the MM B5. But I been telling myself wait for the Factory Team Kit to come out. They released that Factory Light Kit targeted for the stock racers. I run Mod. So I really donít need/want all the light stuff. Any thoughts as to when/if AE will release a B5/B5M Factory Team kit?

Has to be soon.............

I'd say the Factory light kit is not just made for stock racers. There have been several good racers running the 3 gear in modified successfully. Kody Nuemendaulh won a heat at Reedy with it..

We probably wont see a FT kit anytime soon maybe next year. The factory lite car has all of the mods that 99% of mod drivers do anyways so yes it is marketed towards stock class racing but very suitable for mod as well.

I run mine with a square when the grip is pretty low. It helps a ton with rear bite. Also i run one sometimes at the other local track when the grip is high. For me it feels like it makes the car a little lazy and that makes it easier for me to drive on high grip.

How much experience do you guys have filing outdrives with the MIP pucks?

I literally just replaced the pucks two race days ago - and found one side had a rip and started to lightly dig into the outdrive. I replaced the pucks, and then took a file and filed off the ridge it made, and any sharp edges. I already ordered a set of outdrives.

Socket, you need to "sloooooow" down. Then you wont have these issues. I drive slow and never have these problems

I searched, but couldn't find what size fan people are using with the fan mounts. I just ordered an Erik's Parts mount, but all it mentions is the screw lengths needed for a thin or thick fan, but not the size of the fan. I assume they're 30mm?

Also, any idea if the JConcepts Silencer will work with one of these fans or would I end up hacking the body beyond recognition?

thanks for the info on the square pack.

I am looking at a B5M that looks like it was heavily upgraded with spares. but I would most likely just buy 1 square lipo to use for both stock and mod as its not something I heavily run personally but curious on the vehicle none the less.

Have AE in the blood lol..

There are only 2 things I dont like about this car and AE is fixing one of them. It's weight and the front spindles. Cain, I have a fiend selling a B5M also

Hi Tommy,

It uses a standard 30mm fan (outside dimension of fan body). I'll add a note to the diagram -- good input. Thanks for ordering a brace!

Thanks,
Erik of Erik's Parts.
