Didn't see the photo of 30 kits. The question wasn't how much is the car, mines sitting on the sofa here next to me, I just finished installing the transponder. The question was what is the wager you are willing to make but sense you only have for left and no photo of the 30 I guess there's no proof.

Doubt he got 30. great planes spreads kits out among lhs evenly. We got 4 at our lhs out of 20 ordered. I did drive a "team mates" b5m today, the box stock setup is a push monster.

I think TRCR gets some special treatment.

Riverside HP is in RC nomansland for a weird reason. Usually if Hesperia and Redlands don't have something, that one does. Very surprised the west Riverside Corona area doesn't have a track. I will run my RM until summer, then get a new MM kit for my birthday from the wife.

GTB2. It is just a couple mm bigger than a flow according to the published specs. Don't have a car to test fit it in.

So was the B5 rear motor. I looked at the B5M manual and it also suggests the 4mm trailing axle insert for the stock set-up. I switched to the 3mm trailing axle insert in my B5 rear motor and then I had more steering than I could deal with. So the first change I make to the B5M from the stock set-up will be to use the 3mm trailing axle inserts.

Car has plenty of steering with the kit set up, if anything all I notice was forward traction felt a bit low.

Hearing Ae will.be releasing brass rear arm mounts .
Something to look for ...

Make sure everything is clean with alcohol or brakecleaner and use red loctite on the screw. Let the Loctite dry and then wipe everything back down and install axle into the hub. Make sure no Loctite gets on the bearing!!!

I never use red loctite on anything I plan on having to take apart. Blue loctite is my weapon of choice on R/C cars.
