I considered it on my old B5m, and went with the YZ2 gearbox instead because of the work involved. You can run the shocks in front of the arms with the YZ2 gearbox on the buggy if you use the YZ2 tower and B6 arms. In my SC5m I used the Shapeways ACRC 3 gear laydown and the 2 piece battery hold down with fan mount. It drops right in with no drilling, and It's been super reliable after about 4 months of racing on carpet.

I just got a used roller. It was only run a few times and everything looks pretty good. It does have the buggy shock tower mod and the MIP 3gear. I was wondering if any of you run the 3gear and how do you like it? The truck didn't come with the std tranny, so I am kinda stuck with it.

Guys I need a little help, I am 95% sure my wife is getting me a SC5M for Christmas. I got back into RC in the fall with the RC8B3E and RC8T3E after quitting in 2004. This brushless motor stuff I am not fully understanding. I went with the Hobbywing XR8 plus ESC and 1900kv/2250kv motors for my !/8 scale. For the SC5M I am looking at the XR8 SCT Pro ESC (I wanna stick with HW as I have the LCD programmer) and a 4000kv HW motor to run mod class. Does this sound about right? From looking around a 8.5T is like 4050kv. One more question to run stock (17.5) or pro stock (13.5) class do I just grab a motor to that spec?

That esc is overkill, it's more for 8th scale and 4x4 short coarse. Get the hobbywing xr10 pro or the v3.1 both of those wil handle a modified motor good. You can get the xr10 with a motor combo like this. www.amainhobbies.com/hobbywing-xr10-pro-sensored-brushless-esc-v10-motor-combo-7.5t-hwa38020218/p520603

Regarding your 17.5 and 13.5 question, yes pretty much just make sure where you're racing if they are using roar rules to make sure the motor meets those specs which most do. Gearing will be different for the motors but a simple search should get you in the ball park. If you plan on running stock in your sc hobby wing has a new xr10 pro stock spec v4 esc that should handle down to a 13.5 in short coarse I hear maybe more in a lighter vehicle as well.

Just seen that MIP discontinued some of their stuff for this truck and the T5M dropped in price at Tower. New 6 versions coming soon?

hey guys, quick question about shocks. My track that I run on is pretty high bite clay but they race oval on Saturday and build the offroad track with steel ramps on Sundays. Some of them have a pretty steep takeoff to them and I have been having trouble with the back of the truck bottoming out and slapping on the takeoff which causes a pretty drastic nose-down attitude in the air. I bumped the rear shock oil up from 30 to 32.5 which helped a little bit but was wondering if there was something else I was missing.

I am running the Cavalieri setup from the AE site with the only change being that shock oil change and moving the rear shocks to the inner hole on the tower and rear camber link to the inner hole on the hub. https://www.teamassociated.com/pdf/c...lieri_ROAR.pdf

Stiffer rear springs and /or more antisquat.

on a "normal" jump, this is called butt slap.

More (maybe 1mm or less) rear ride height is the normal fix, IF the rest of the RC's setup is good.

If the jumps don't have a radius or enough radius leading from the level surface to the middle of the jump surface. You will need to adjust your driving to fit the jump.

As you can see it can be done. The track owner had just watched >> LIVE << the Robbie Gordon's Stadium SUPER Truck race in St Pete, FL. And wanted the same racing at his track.

You could also try running the 3 x 1.4 pistons in the rear.

Hey Nick, Not sure if you saw my truck in the mains but it was really good. I'm also basically running the Cav setup as well. The changes I've made were raised ride height to 29mm front 27mm rear and -1 camber all around.
I also removed the under battery weight since I have it set up for 17.5 SCT.

I'll be at the track tonight trying to get this B6 dialed in. I can take a look at yours if you're going to be there or grab me on Sunday.

Yea I will be there tonight. I was thinking of trying to take the battery weights out and move the battery farther back and see what that does.

What are you guys doing to help with the chassis roll? My track is high bite clay and I've got Cav's SRS setup on it but the truck still has a ton of roll. I did make it better by adding the 3rd hole in the front arm. This helped a lot but the truck is still a handful at times. I've heard some adding B5m rear shocks and tower but I figured that is just for carpet.
I have thought about adding the front sway bar that walliebuilds offers.
