B5m

Post by thodgez28 »

Just bought a B5m. Putting an Orion 10.2 pro and a 7.5 turn vst2 Orion brushless in her. Anyone else ran this combo? What did you think? Any suggestions on different combos? Also using a 5000 mah with a 110c lipo

It's going to be very fast.

If you haven't driven it yet, the B5M is a very easy car to drive. Huge departure from the B4 series. I doubt the B6 can be nearly as much of a change as the B5M was.

I was blown away when I first drove my friends B5M, and knew I had to upgrade from my B4.2 to the B5M. I ended up with the light-weight version, and have been very happy with it. Pro-Tip, do not use the hard carbon arms, keep the regular plastic ones. The carbon ones snap on a regular basis.

Kinda sucked because I had a LOT of upgraded parts on that B4. I sold it to a friend, so it's still kinda in-the-family, so to speak.
