My first go at a fan in the waterfall, the smaller fans work better than the large one I used here.
Thanks for the link! Is there a specific fan that everyone runs? Just want a good reliable one for my car. Noticed that it's for the b5m but will it also fit the lite version?

I will have to look and see if I have the stuff to dremel. If not I will order one

No fan lasts forever (at least not on the race track). The Novaks are ok and the one that came with my HW 3.1 were all good. Cant speak for other brands.

Just saw schelle making the offset topshaft kit. Anyone running one yet or not worth it with mm. I had one on my b4, definately improved on that.

For everyone racing stock or super stock, is the lite version the way to go? Is everyone faster with it?

SEF,

You cant go wrong with the lite. I built a few and they are a great kit to build and really need nothing added to race it. Go for it.

Thanks Kevin. Looking to get back into 1/10 scale and get indoors. Getting a little too hot at some of these outdoor tracks.

Don't blame you, visited Louisiana more than a few times. Wonderful people and even better food. But dang it gets HOT.

You'll dig the B5M Lite, as others have said, awesome kit out of the box. The right tires for your track/location is all you need.

Yes I am running it on my B5M and have ran it in both stock and mod and I think it helps tremendously. It helps with side to side weight transfer while cornering. After you put it on and look at it compared to the stock one you can see how off center it really is. I think it is a must for the 3 gear. And remember it uses the new top shaft so if you have an old B5M and you want to run it in 4 gear you will need the new gearbox.

I would not mind seeing some more offering of wings made out of Nylon plastic like an 1/8 buggy has maybe not as thick and have some color choices.

Also could help with a little more weight on the rear for outdoor less traction surfaces situations.

The only one I seen is 3Racing's wing.

Only drawback is it weighs twice as much as a lexan wing, and adding that much weight up high is going to make the rear want to roll a lot more. A couple guys run them where I race, and they do plenty of durability testing with them. I guess the handling drawback wouldn't be that bad of a trade off instead of having to replace a wing so often.

My daughter runs that sworkz wing on her b5m. It is 3X the weight of my JC wing. ~30 grams vs ~10g. And it does make the rear gain extra bite and it does dump over a bit more. She does not have any issues racing with it. I driver her car from time to time. I can feel the extra weight in the rear, but it is not terrible. She is still in novice and sc truck love to run her over. So a little heavier wing, is the least of her issues. Interesting thing.....8th scale guys are going to lexan wings.

The stock wing that came with my factory body was the toughest/thickest lexan wing I have ever run.

The sworkz wing has been on my 10 years buggy for 10 months...racing weekly....


Also, a friend painted his wing with plastic dip and it seemed to last a really long time. But it does add weight as well.
