Default Team Associated RC10 B5 Rear-Motor Thread




+ YouTube Video
ERROR: If you can see this, then YouTube is down or you don't have Flash installed.


Update:

Build Tips: TURNBUCKLES - consider using either a 7/64 drill bit to remove just a tiny bit of material from ball cups to make threading the turnbuckles in a bunch easier......or grease the threads using chapstick...

Build Tips: - FRONT AXLES - some people have had problems destroying front axles......it looks like the crush tube is just a bit too narrow. a 5 x 7 .2mm shim should fix this issue...Please check the B5 Nation Facebook group and see Chad Dues' Post.



A few quick UPDATES:

1. The B5 will be using the same turnbuckles as the B4.2 although the ball cups and ball studs will be different.
2. Both Mid and Rear Motor Buggies will use all METRIC hardware
3. Saddles, Shorty and Square Batteries WILL fit! Original long stick packs WILL NOT fit.

As soon as aftermarket parts, set up sheets, videos and manuals are available they will be posted here.

To the member who posted the 25 off coupon code at tower, I tried to preorder it, and I am not sure the code works for the B5.

Also, I saw somebody mention that super saver club members get it for around 200. Super saver is only 10 bucks to join right now, can anyone confirm the price of the B5 for super savers?

The item needs to be instock to qualify for the discount coupons. It does not work on pre-orders / backorders.

Wow only $239 for the rear motor & $259 for the mid motor from Towers website.

With that price these should be flooding the market.
Thank you AE for not putting another $350 +++ dollar buggy on the market.
Some 2wd buggies cost as much as some touring cars not cool...

So is that a saddle pack in there? I donít see a seam between the two cells. Think they will have a Shorty option in the build? Like the SC10 4X4 has different battery options?

That's a single lipo with the same dimensions as a saddle pack.
