We get around 25-30 stadium trucks on a club races up in Bellingham Washington at Mike's RC world indoor Snow series. Stadium truck didn't die up here in the Pacific NW.

We used to have a lot then SCT came into the scene and the class dwindled to an every other week class. Hopefully it picks back up with the new trucks hitting the market. I will get a T5M as soon as they drop!

If and when this thing gets released, do you think it will push TLR to respond?

Nothing wrong with those front axles, they are just a tad heavier than the old-school multipart version with aluminum hexes. Maybe the chassis is actually the same, wheelbase on the B5M and the T4 seems to be pretty much identical.

Also notice the alum rear camber mount.

Also included longer ballstuds and a nut on the rear hubs.

Anyone want to play the price guessing game?

I say $289 for the MM and $259 for the RM.

Default Spy photo question

Correct me if I'm wrong, but is that T5 spy photo showing him charging the battery while still connected to his electronics of his car? Is this OK? It also appears that he is not using the balancing plug...? Or a lipo sack?

Perhaps I am being overly cautious, but I always disconnect the battery and charge it in a Lipo sack with the balancing plug in as well.

What do you guys do?

I rarely balance, maybe once every other month. Yes it's ok to charge connected to your electronics. However, I think it sets a bad example at the track by charging in your car!! Other people who don't use quality equipment and or don't know how to use it properly might try this and have it end in a fire...

So, you're saying it's OK, as long as you don't mind the occasional fire?

No, what I'm saying is some folks aren't smart enough to use their own equipment. So some shmuck sees the "pros" do it and decides he should. Of course he has some crap charger with bad leads or old lipos... And he causes a fire in his car.

9 out of 10 lipo fires are user error!

Everything Cav is doing in that pic is perfectly fine... IF your equipment is good and set properly and you know what you're doing. I see a lot of "pros" charging in cars. I however, will not!

I was just kidding, of course.

Why does it not fry your ESC?
