I've got your weekly M chassis speed tip: Reducing the amount of gear contact surface also reduces wasteful friction!

And, if you're like me, first barrier you hit, that sukka gonna strip faster than drunk chick winning the lottery.

You been hanging out on the B5M thread or what?

The B5M guys that run 17.5 stock class do this, and a bunch of other crazy/expensive stuff...

Take out the 5 and all you've got left is BM. This is from an old Malaysian mini thread. It's tame compared to some of the bizarre chassis hacking they get up to. Saw one M05 with a 35t pinion jammed in it. Motor was moved so far back, the battery had to be moved too.

I wish I could as Kady has been begging for a race day. Unfortunately we had already said yes to birthday parties so cannot on such short notice. I hope all the other have fun if it does go.

No buggy this time?
If not I will try to build something, although I do have a dentist appointment in the morning so depending on how that goes we may or may not make it

Anyone need two Sakuras and an M05? Striking resemblance to Chuck's cars. Will have with me on Saturday...
