Never liked how tall the side pods are on the Finnisher so I slammed it. Also like the back sitting level with the top of the tranny. I think I might make my own and combine the Finnisher and Silencer by maybe adding some downforce in the back of the side pods.

Might be a weird question... but does the B5M come standard with the optional bit of foam spacers for those wanting to run a shorty battery?

Thanks in advance!

Sure, you can paint it if you like. Same material as the chassis body.

It is odd...most in the states don't paint the wing, or they'll scuff it mily white, while I'll see european drivers sometime paint the wing one of their scheme colors.

Thank you... it looked like polycarbonate, but wasn't 100% sure. After 14 years or so of nitro on-road racing it is time for a change and I think i found it without breaking the bank

The Serpent Kit body is kind of like a Finnisher and Silencer combined. It's actually really nice and performs very wellon the Serpent. I would love to try something like that on a B5m.

Default Aluminum servo arms

Hey all, wondering what aluminum servo arms fit the b5m while keeping the same geometry as the stock plastic ones. Running 23t servo now. Also what are your opinions on stock plastic vs. aluminum. Any input would be great. Thanks

There is nothing in the ROAR or IFMAR rules saying off-road wings can not be painted. Once advertising took over r/c racing that rule went buh-bye.
