Thanks, I think I'll go with the Maxilla. My track layout is usually pretty technical with not really a long straight away.

A driver I sponsor (paint) won the stock truck class at the Mid Summer Shootout this weekend at Coyote Hobbies in Victorville CA. He also just so happened to get picked up by Associated at the event. The kid is super fast. Also painted the body of the 3rd place finishers ct4.2.

Why not get a short stack maxzilla? I have the 17.5 1S maxzilla (in my buggy) and I absolutely love it.

I run the regular old D4 13.5 Maxzilla and it seems slow. I've been playing with gearing and timing but it just doesn't seem to have the umph that I need. I'm running 26/78 @ 40 degrees and I was running 24/78 @50 and it was getting a little warm. Previously I was running the Reedy 8.0 and that was way too much. The f'n truck would wheelie all the time with the 8.0. Anyway, I'd run the short stack 13.5 or a 10.5. The truck is really heavy.

Hey guys I stumbled on this while on ebay and was wondering if it can fit the T5M. Associated 1766 Ft Lightwght Outdrive Set B4/Gt. Should be nice for stock class.

Nope, they are for the original B4/T4 and GT. standard size bearings, not metric

[QUOTE=lbckevin;14040656]Thank you.

Your ST is looking good Kevin. I have one of those select V3 motors coming for my T5m. What are you gearing that bad boy to run at OCRC? Ordered one for my B5m too.

Thanks

I am running 36-38 degrees of timing with a gearing of 76/28 for my T5m

My B5m is running 42 degrees of timing and a gearing of 72/30 or sometimes a 31 pinion.

I used the std truck one (i think thats the +9mm) but you can use the buggy as well (+5mm). It really doesn't matter.

I run on a fairly big track with a nice straight, I want to go mod.

What's a smooth mod motor? Fellow racer runs a 8.0 and it flies.

Probably will run a HW v3.1 esc.

That would be pretty smooth and fast!

looking at the t5m setup sheets, it seems the rear tower settings are borked...

when you select the middle hole it actually covers what would appear to be the inside hole, while the marker for the inside hole on the tower looks like old "0" hole.
