I'm glad they omitted wheels and put the rear aluminum camber mount instead. I prefer black wheels. I got my body all rattle can sprayed. She's ready to rock...

I still would have liked to have seen wheels in the kit, as it costs $20 more than the original B5m kit. Also same price as the newer B5m Lite kit that includes aluminum rear ballstud mount, aluminum hexes, and titanium turnbuckles.

Hmm don't know what to think of the truck, it looked good, but it didn't.. Like almost inconsistent? Maybe I'll give the people who have the truck a few more weeks to figure it out.

Anyone else kinda experiencing similar thing?
Going to hold on to the RT6 for now!

For my buggy, the chainlinks are $18.99/ pr mounted and pre-glued.

There is no need to waste so much money on tires.
That's just LHS prices. The prices on the bags. He's usually priced perfect as far as paying a little more than online cause of shipping, owning a building with indoor/outdoor tracks, fuel and parts for track build, etc. So a little extra is no prob. But IDK. I guess I figured every place was the same way.

Most places are the same unless you buy online like his above prices stated. Price some pay to support the local guys but......saving 40 bucks is a lot too. Ha

Default Sensor Wire Routing

Concerned about battery damaging sensor wire when routing in slot at base of chassis. Had a problem with b5m using the same config and changed to running sensor wire on top of battery along with motor wires. Any tips on protecting sensor wire when routing it under a square pack battery?

I used this in my B5M and probably will in my T5M...

I've just been using tape to hold the sensor wire down. And my t5m was hooked up!

I used Mini-z tire tape. It is also called acrylic transfer tape. It is just a super thin layer of the double stick tape with out any added thickness.

No they wont. The T5m has metric axles where the T4 was standard. AE has aluminum hexes, they are just hard to get at the moment.

No way...$94?

Dude...

I bought a set of "unobtanium" Proline MC Primes for my ST and paid full retail and only spend $50 for tires.

Several at the track last night.

Stock setup looked really good, looks like the truck has a ton of grip.
