ME ME ME! Cant wait until the upgrades hit stadium truck. A stadium truck with the durability and adjustability of the B5 will be very nice.

I thought about doing that. Since the week point is the front caster blocks I am sure the durability became way better. Now upgrade to the 14 ball diff and you'll be on the money. I think the rear can be done too but you might have to run 22t dogbones

ME ME ME TOOO. Love my B5 and want to race ST as well (class will pick up right?) I picked up a 22T but would prefer an AE car.

Edit: but I would guess the SCT version of the platform comes out first. I would also guess that AE is struggling with Mid vs Rear for these two. If they ran the same chassis it would be easier but with SCT being longer it means 4 more chassis and with ST barely holding on I would think the business decision would be tough. Same deal with SCT, how many places really benefit from a MM design with SCT? How many units would be sold vs the cost of development?

I tried MM on my 22sct. The box stock RM setup was best on that truck. I don't think MM is a nec evil. I run down MM buggies with my RM B5's no problem. Quite a few local to me are finding setup is way easier on a RM too. Most who bought B5MM's sold them for RM B5's. I think a SCT and a ST in RM only will be just fine. Ah hell, I am gonna find a T4 and convert it now. What else should I do on my week vacation?

I have talked to a few people with the MM centro style sct conversion, they all say it is great, but just has too much weight for stock, i think a mid ST would be killer, my Super stock truck has to have a super loose slipper to keep from wheeling down the straight. although my B5M will wheelie if i get enough traction out of the turn, not as easy as my b4.2 did though. the b5m just feels so much easier for me to drive hard and consistant, hence why i want a T5M even though the market isnt really up right now. I want this class to explode again just like the SCT did.

BTW buggys were looking good wednesday at Coyote

On par,not on par. It doesn't matter as long as your having fun. I am a career mid pack racer. I used to get frustrated because I let competition get to me always trying to get a Amain win. Now I just show up to drive and set a goal to minimize mistakes. I have had a few nights now with no mistakes in the mains. That is winning to me.
