actually, that is not a bad idea. but sadly, you will probably have to wait a year. I do wish they would at least release and optional light weight chassis

Yes, this helps a lot. Get your dremel, cause theres a lot of grinding to do.LOL!

What do you think??
I run even lap times with my stadium truck as I do my buggy. It is way more forgiving, just harder to get nimble feeling. Just pick one and run it. I went back to 17.5 short course and am having all kinds of fun with it!

How much different you think it'll be compared to the B5m?

Not much... but would be nice to figure out the turnbuckle lengths.. but from the looks of the pictures it more than likely take two sets of 2.65" turnbuckles and one set of 2.80" turnbuckles... slightly different from the T4 stuff...

Has anyone else noticed that on Amain the estimated arrival date is March 27, but on towerhobbies it says late February? Wondering it's possible tower will have it that much earlier or if they're just being optimistic to get the sale. I've had good luck with tower on my b5 pre order- got it pretty early.
