Any setup sheets around yet? I thought I saw one floating around on the internet, but can't seem to find it. I can't remember if the one I saw was Rivkin's or Cavs. Hmmm... or are you guys building it mostly box stock. The box stock setup was supposedly for OCRC which is my hometrack, so it should be fine. But curious what you guys are doing and if any sheets are out there

What battery configuration should yield the most rear traction? Brick/saddle pack or shorty shoved all the way to the back?

+2 on this. I will be on a loose track dominated by rear motor configs so I am hoping I can piggy back off some setup tips from someone else.

What we're the results of your setup? Did you make any changes?

I would think this question would be relative to set-up and the class your running, but I know when I ran my b5, i liked the brick better. made my platform more stable for Mod class.

Looks like the front axle is different than the T5m, anyone know the difference? I bought some fancy light weight exotek ones that I want to still use when I convert to SC5m.

Its on the sheet, Im running stock 17.5 in a couple weeks so setting up for that. From box setup, i moved rear arms forward and upper rear shock mounts all the way in. Rear was a bit loose and had all kinds of steering, this seemed to help. 3 gear, exotec plate, schelle slipper and strap, shorty pack. that's all.
