People in my area that run the SC5m, have been dremaling their chassis
so they can use regular stick packs in it. Smart idea I think.

To save money. Lipos are not cheap. They can use packs they already have
and not have to buy brand new packs.

understand that but when the sticks where out, saddle or square would be the way to go I would think.

SMC makes great Lipos and you can get a stick pack for about $30.

SC5M with in line shorty, full rear works well on high traction.

Any battery in an in line setup has less of a rotation problem.

MORE centrifugal force with the weight not as centered.

Problem is: I live in Germany. With customs duty and value-added tax it's the same price (approx. 351€) I could order it here in Germany, but I got it with christmas offer für 305€. I'm just racing it for fun and it shall replace my 5 year old SC10 so I don't reaaly need to get it in time, but waiting half a year for a almost new car is quite a long time...

I use Schumacher and I like it better than JConcepts Hazard. Hazard broken very fast. Schumacher on the same track still alive.

So, been a while since i posted here or drove my sc5m. I have been running it indoors on slicks. The truck feels pretty good over all, but it "feels" like it needs more. More what? Unsure, lol. First off, I can make it jump flat, but it takes more effort than the b5m or t5m. I dont htink it is a f/r slapping the face issue. feels like maybe it is an air issue. If the nose is a little down and you give it any breaks, it will flip and land on its roof. This is mainly when the wheels still have momentum. So i am guessing this is just something to get used to driving with the sc5m. Also, the low speed steering is terrible. Works best at medium speeds using brakes in the sharper turns. to get the weight transitioned to the front wheels. I tried softer front springs, but it was crap. way too twitchy. The stiffer setup pushes at slow speeds, but that is better than twitchy.

Man that's exactly how I feel about mine. It just doesn't have the "locked down" feeling that my B5m and T5m have. I'm about to have a laydown gearbox not being used, so I'm going to give that a try. I already run the battery full forward. I'm going to lower the ride height too and then play with roll centers to get more steering. Still a fun truck though.
