Default Motor & gearing

Been running mod and looking at running stock. Regrettably, that is what everyone runs at my track. What's everyone running for 17.5? I've obly paid attention to buggy gearing and motors for stock. Any help on motor and gearing much appreciated. Thx

I am looking for a second car. Allready own an B5m for racing and was looking for the SC5M for bashing. Is this car durable and bash proof? Would like to drive with this car on our local track but also in the woods (with mud and water!), no racing.

My first choice for a new bashing truck was the SC10B, but I think that the SC5M is more durable, because there are no parts sticking out of the body. Just because the body is so open on the underside, I think this truck would be a mud magnet.
Will probably run this with a 17.5t or 19t brushless setup (sensorless because of water rides) and I prefer longer runtimes over speed. If I would get at least 30min runtime on 1 lipo, I am happy.

Thanks

You could use an old B5M Body (I trimmed a B44.3 Body) and suit it under the SC Body. That way you can use velcro and nearly every dirt is kept out!
Even if the chassis dont fit perfectly, wht most dirt cant get in.

Its a cheap solution for me

This is brilliant! I'll be trying this when I get home.

Any issues with heat?

I've not jet tried in summer conditions. But I think you can compare it to a B5M or any other buggy which is "closed". So really cant tell. I think it could be slightly warmer than a buggy due to increased tire diameter and slightly more weight. So maybe try one tooth less on the pinion for starters?

Outerwears makes a cover that velcros on kind of like a buggy body but it is a fabric.

If you do not need to be ROAR legal, the Hobbywing Bandit 17.5 is the fastest 17.5 you can get without spending $150 on a Trinity Big Blue which is also not legal. Its a total cheater motor and its not going to be legal for the JBRL or races where they have rules but I know that where you race its a great choice. Not only are they as fast as many 13.5s, they can be run at higher temps than a lot of other motors. I use them at my home track during the summer and fall because they are the only motor that I've used that can be run 180 degrees all summer long. Hobbywing rates then to 212 degrees [which I've never tested]. I know they are good to 190.

Thanks! May have to pick one up soon. I'm wondering if I can throw in my Reedy Mach 3 17.5 in the meantime? How is your shipment of Fantom's treating you?

Guys.....Girls.....this truck is fast. Straight out of the box fast. No blue parts are needed for this truck to set new personal best lap times. I started with the kit set up- 100%. I then proceeded to best my best SC10 lap time by almost a second. Seriously. I noticed and felt that the inside front tire was compressing too much on high speed corner exits so I installed the Grey truck springs in the front. It didn't get faster but it was easier to drive. Some of these part lists are crazy. You don't need any of it to drive this thing to the front. For some of you guys that just bought it, put it together right, then try driving it. I was blown away by how good this thing is. Running multiple classes is easier too. Transitioning from my 5M to my T5 to this is seamless.

No harm no foul I was just getting the impression that some of you were thinking you needed those lists to be competitive with this truck. You don't. Spend your initial money on wheels and tires. Carry on. AR
Some of us just like messing with things so that our cars are unique
