My B5M lite setup for high grip, fast carpet track



Tower side front camber link is in the 1 position...sorry didnt check that one

Gobs of steering, on and off power

Here's the track, my first practice day with the car clicked off a 20.1, 18.8, 18.8 and 19.0 Blue buggy with white wheels

No, it's a small screw in aluminum..gently tighten it until you feel it bottom out then give it a small turn just to make it snug...I've heard from a lot of people that they've stripped them out

Questions?? Switch to B5M Lite?

I currently race a 17.5 blinky B5RM. I race strictly 17.5 on an indoor 125x65 med - high bite clay track. I am an average driver at best, but my lap times have dropped over 2 sec/lap in the last 6 months because of a combination of switching to the B5RM from a B4, switching to a Tekin RS Gen2, and then the biggest improvement came from switching to a Futaba 4PKS-R from a 3PM-X. I was going to buy a B5M lite as the next logical step. One of the hot multi sponsored young drivers had driven my car at practice a few times. He raced Sunday in stock buggy with his brother's maxed out mid motor buggy. His lap times were the same with the mid-motor as with my rear motor. Will the B5M lite be a waste of money? I hate to invest the $ and time getting it set up if I won't see an improvement in lap times and more importantly to me, consistency.

We will get the Spencer/Kody set up from the JC Stock Nats posted soon, it's pretty standard stuff. Also no pucks were in the top 4 Expert buggies, guys tried both and preferred the standard parts.

do you sense your car could be faster transitioning into and out of the corners? Are you trying to free up the rear end so it will rotate faster? These kinds of questions may lead you to a mid motor car.

If you're happy - stick with it.

The mid motor car for you will be slower. It won't get off the corner as hard, and it'll be difficult to drive at first. You'll get frustrated, but if you stick with it, you'll go faster. Most get frustrated before they learn to drive a mid motor and sell it.

Even outdoors on medium grip a mid motor car is easier to drive fast. You just need to relearn how to drive. The corner speed is insane.

No prices, no sales pitch. Just a manufacturer giving an update on production status to those who are curious.

Most of us will understand this but jerzi......will not.

Almost all of jerzi's posts are related to the parts he makes. But when a manufacturer comes in and answers a question regarding production numbers (not selling, or sales pitch) it ruffles his feathers. I have now put him on IL as I don't want to buy his carbon parts and that's the only information he offers.

Yes you are right. I dont understand.
I have realized that this VP site is not worth to show of my carbon stuff.
I have put my carbon parts to rc10 talk and never had any problem to show my stuff overthere.
They liked my parts there but here is the otherway.
No showing off because if you create parts at home as i do and i want to show of them here i have to pay this rc tech some fees like the other firms/manufacktors do.
So if you want to follow my parts i do please pm me and I tell you where you can find my parts in the net.
Maybe someone allready have seen my kickup carbon chassis. Thats the newest one but the next chassis will be an 40gr chassis. Wy well because it is fun.
