Wondering what's the best option to go with for aluminum steering rack and bellcranks? I see JC makes nice bellcranks, but only rack I see is that integy has all three parts for sale on ebay. Honestly I've not had a problem with the stock parts in either my B5M or T5 but the parts look nice.

thanks again for the tips - new setup had me running with way more confidence on the rough track. I didn't end up getting a chance to do the brass C block or X rings but the 1.7 pistons, green springs all around and 37.5/30wt shock oil did the trick. Qualified 2nd and won the main! (top guy was out so didn't really count and need a rematch). Buggy was really fun to drive.

Looking for advice on where to start with pionion/spur running a 4.5T in a b5m. The gearing chart in the book of goes down to 6.5T

Thanks

Is it common for people to have two buggies for indoor and outdoors? I'm pondering the idea of buying another buggy with a 10.5 to use for outdoors while my indoor is 17.5....

Yes, it's common, still have a B5m for outdoor and a B6 for indoor
Useful when races alternate between (very) high and (very) low grip

Lots of people have 2 or more buggies per class, people here run a buggy for 17.5, another for 13.5 and yet another for mod in some cases.. all indoors..

Im sure they have outdoor buggies as well lol

I would like two but has anyone ever thought of running a 17.5 in mod class with some esc timing? Then when the stock class comes all you do is change a pinion and maybe a spur and you're ready to go. I'll most likely just try and find another cheap roller and set it up for outdoor

One a different note, I finally got my tires broken in and the harder I drove it the better it d

A lot depends on the track, and class rules. For instance a 17.5 class may allow aluminum drive train parts. Using those same light weight parts on a boosted 17.5 may break them. I have run smaller motors with timing in a unlimited class and had better average lap times than the bigger motor guys. I didn't even change gearing, I turned my base motor timing down did some tuning on a profile with timing boost etc. The mod motors were too much for the track, and every one knows turning the power down is not an option. Yes they got though the straight faster, etc. I was able to run a smoother lap and get better overall lap times. I actually set the fastest track lap times, it was not a fluke, I had three laps that fast in the same race.

Class rules aren't to strict for club racing. Just 17.5 motor with blinky esc and everything else is open. Right now it has the pucks, super nova slipper and all new bearingswith a reedy17.5. It would seem easier and maybe cut down the costs running what you do/did so I can get more classes out of the day (2 hour drive to track). I'll have to switch out my justock for something else so it can do timing and blinky.

Hello All,
A couple years ago I rehabbed my 30 year old Gold Pan for my, now ten year old, son. We have run it quite a bit, just bashing, and it has been pretty good. With that said I nailed a curb in the spring and ended up spending to much time and money getting it back in running order. Parts are getting harder and harder to come by and they are expensive so I set my eyes on finding a more modern buggy for us. I really wanted a B4.2 but they are not so easily found in decent shape at a decent price so I started looking at B5's. There are a lot of B5's out there and I just closed the deal on a pretty clean looking B5M with a bunch of spares, including 6 sets of tires and wheels for $125 shipped. I plan on using a none censored 3200KV motor that I am using in the Gold Pan which, even when under geared, provided more then enough speed for my 10 year old and was fast enough for me to have fun with it.....not to mention we get like 20 minutes of run time with a 4000mah pack.

With all that said I will give it a once over when it arrives tomorrow but was wondering if there are any areas that should be given a closer look or if there are any parts I should install knowing that it will be used as a basher on everything from tarmac to the beach?

I am looking forward to seeing what 30 years has done for buggy development.

Cheers
Jim
