Hello T5M knowledge. I am about to run a 13.5 series in my town, and was looking for some good places to start with on my new rig.

Running the same series... 13.5 is more a stock style class where lower weight and rotating mass is important. Good motor and battery is critical as well.

If possible, run 3 gear with a shorty pack to try and save as much weight as you can without blowing the bank and work from there.

Right now 702rc has a center double to triple, should be able to clear the triple with a decent setup and run about a 18.5 second lap time if not better.

I'm running the Cole Tollard setup on the AE website with one step lighter oil front and rear and it's pretty spot on for 702rc. Grab the ultra soft chainlinks for rear tires, seems to work the best for whats available right now. On the fronts, i'm running M4 suburbs.

Awesome! I will be seeing you there then. This is my first time back to 702 for racing in over a year so it's been a while, but really want to try out the stadium truck scene.

Thanks for the info that will be a good base line indeed. I actually bought someone else's truck off RCTECH(low usage roller, nice add-ons) Saved me a bit of dough so I can slap on the 3 gear and get a decent motor.

Are you running MIP stock CVD's for dropping some rotating mass?

I picked up a set of MIP pucks but haven't installed them yet. The way the track is laid out right now I don't think ya gotta get too crazy. Should have the same layout for a couple of the rounds or with minor changes. I've got a white, orange and gray T5M. Come say high if ya see me.

Just recently adopted the same mode of thinking. I think realistically coming from years of layoff from rc on-road and coming back to off-road it's better mentally to be realistic than to create a mental environment that I back out of the racing again. Minimize mistakes and learn more and go home happy.....

Go to 3 gear as soon as you can.... I know you are not running those tires! Looks like you have a chassis protector... Who makes that battery strap? I love copper or as Hyandai calls it: Vitamin lol!

That looks like the same color as my truck, and it called Candy Orange of all things!

Bubonic-X, why would you go 3-gear? because of the tires? i build mine 4 gear with a 8.5t and also using stagger and mini spikes. it's not finished yet. should i switch?

I'm assuming he didn't realize you guys are running in Europe where turf and carpet are run more often using the spikes. Rarely see spikes here in the states with clay and dirt tracks.

I am running on a indoor carpet track. We will be moving outside starting in June. I will be using proline calibers.
Schumacher Racing "Stagger Rib" 2.2 1/10 Truck Front Tires
Schumacher Racing "Mini Spike" 2.2 1/10 Truck Rear Tires
This is the spray paint color Tamiya PS-61 Metallic Orange
This is the battery strap Jammin Products RC10B5M/RC10T5M Carbon Fiber Adjustable Battery Strap
I am using the JConcepts clear chassis sheets $8 for two.

There is no need for the 3 gear transmission for myself.
