are they a special order item, or is it something we need to make ??? it seems like they would have to clear the belt, and diff....

Here's your spy shot, we're working to get some of these in stock, as well as the shock mounts... Stay tuned

The second pic, view from the top shows the front of the rear arms linked together with a carbon brace..

One of my guys has been in communication with Martin. .. it seems, at least for now, that the shorties will not be an 'official' option for the 5... however if there's significant interest , we may/ could look into having the towers produced locally..

@ chief... no problem. . When they're in our hands, I'll be letting you know..

Hi guys, had my first outdoor evening racing the mi5 tonight, loved it, came 3rd overall

Edit: found out the motor issue, ive sheared my sensor wire in half haha was running sensorless


but in terms of spur, i am using a 48 pitch 70t with a 28t pinion, i dont feel its fast enough, with full timing advance on the motor, its barely getting warm, any ideas, would rather stick to 48p as the smaller style spur keeps any stones from ripping it up to a minimum.

Certainly that's a given. I'm just into taking a hit and have the horn strip and skip a few teeth, throwing the steering way off to one side during a race.

.....was just asking the question if there were other options out there being used. Thanks.

Use the servo saver but they don't always go bk to dead centre plus cause the steering to be lazy to react
I have had a servo horn or two go on me and didn't find anything that give the dirct feel and cost less if it brakes

Default Shocks

Hofer's setup has the shock length at 10mm not 12mm like the kit suggests. Is this achieved by cutting the shafts our by limiting with o rings or spacers?
