I have heard that using the same pack over and over kills it faster. But I track the IR on my packs, and they maintain their numbers for a good about of time... not years... But I believe it was said is that running it over and over back to back was bad. But having 1-2 hours between rounds should be plenty of time to rest. now if you practice for 20 minutes, then 40 amp charge, then immediately run another 20 minutes and keep repeating that, I can see it being more of an issue. Also, it depends on the class. Stock buggy does not build up much battery heat. in an ebuggy, sc 4x4 or even a 4wd buggy with a hot motor, I can see that being much more of an issue.

I am not trying to be mean, but that is an epic response. It almost resembles something google talk would write, lol.

Interesting. Do you have any links or sources for the studies you could share?

What length flat sensor wire are you guys using in your B5M Lites? Just curious before I order one....my LHS doesn't stock the flat ones. I bought a 100mm round one hoping it'd work but it's too short. I found Reedy sensor wires, just wondering what length you guys suggest. I'm assuming 150mm

Depends how you mount your electronics. Run a string from the motors sensor port to the esc's and measure it

Talking

I just finished rebuilding my B5M. I bought it pre-owned. This is my first MM car. I've always raced (stock blinky) RM AE buggies since the first RC10 came out in 1984. I used most of the stock settings except for trailing arm which I have set at 2, and added CSI blue pistons. I tried it for the first time Sunday at practice. The car handles extremely well. Initially it pushed on corner exit, so added flex and a little front toe in. Now it turns very tight and has good entry and exit power-on steering. It's very easy to drive. (On an indoor clay 125x65 med - high bite track) I have a little too much pack so I'm going to soften the springs and drop a 1/2 weight on shock oil. All-in-all very pleased with my first MM car. I let my son drive it, and he wished his 22 cornered as well.

Is there a special bearing size I need to run the mip topshaft, the one I had in my B5 doesn't fit for some reason. The bearing is seated properly.
