That's what most of the track here are like also. Some worse then that. That's why I ended up getting the rear motor.

Top 5 finishers were all mm of various makes. It was definitley a loose track. If you got on the throttle too hard even in the slightest you were loose regardless in rm or mm. I don't have the quals on video track was half as loose. In the end it was just to show what type of conditions we ran in and the end of the straight was like trying to stop in a sandbox

We were forced to run right after the 4wd sct main. It was the loosest it had been all day.

To me thats real off road although the mains were to the extreme of that window this track had no sugar or mag applied previously. I'd take a surface like that over heavily sugared every day. At my home track we use magnesium. Holds together nicely but doesn't destroy tires like sugar yet still gives about 75-85 percent of the grip sugar does.

Just in general, doesn't matter which arms you are using it applies but if you are changing arms make that change first then try it before trying another change and so on otherwise you will never know what effect each change had...

less frt droop will give more on power steering. It was advice given by Ray Munday. He actually made reference that he builds his frt shocks with one more limiter then he may expect to need. That way if he has too much he can just unscrew the eyelets back out some to accomodate the added spacer.

Since then I have applied the same theory and have found it work as he said it would.

Default Motor too hot

Built the b5m factory lite running a trinity d4 short stack 17.5 motor. Im currently geared at 69spur and 32 pinion. Temps on motor are coming off close to 180. Not sure what to do. Can is set at timing 50. Dont want to go down a tooth cause i dont like the feel of the car. Suggestions? And is there a way to place a fan on the motor. Seems like the center brace would be in the way for a fan

He did not attend the warm up race but is attending the open practice session that is occurring after the warm up. TLR felt that is was more beneficial / more track time this way.

32/69 is tall gearing for that motor.

With a weaker short stack, I'd stay at 29/69 or 30/72 with timing cranked to 60. Yes, run a fan...there was a layout at srs that loved taller gearing, and had two large straight aways and a big sweeper connecting them. I could run 33/69 there and run very cool.

The R1 wurks 8.4v fan is the best out there.

Why is that? On my Fantom Team Works edition V5 (basically a certified standard stack D4) and I run 69/32 pretty much everywhere I race at, hardly gets warmed up, and It's still crzy fast!

What Motor fan setup is everyone liking and running? Seems like a lot of the info on here was about talking about which ones were available but what have people decided that they like?

Also 5.3-5.5 FDR the ticket for the Fantom IonV5 17.5 short stack?

the short stack is high rev'er and likes shorter gearing with lots of timing. i'm currently running mine at 31/72 with 60 degrees of timing and it feels great.

First/easiest thing to try is moving the battery forward.

Wildcat.. I don't think I would be making comments on how bad somebody elses driving looks, if I were you. Lay off a bit.

On that track, RM cars will rule. I would never run a MM car on such a loose track.

Back to the B5M.

I was referring to the cars and the track. I said nothing about driving skill. I dont assault other drivers skills.
