Well, it's only gonna run this one race weekend and then live out it's life on the shelf. Whatever it looks like afterwards, so be it.
I am having second thoughts about using it though. Before I had the idea for this build, my plan was to complete a B1.5 project that I had hoped to use at the 2016 race but knew I wasn't gonna make it. So the project has sat idle. But when A-main Hobbies was blowing out Worlds kits before Christmas for $150, I figured I might as well use one of those. It would cost me a lot less money in the long run. Other than getting some titanium turnbuckles, better ball cups and bearings for the bellcrank, I could run it straight out of the box. Obviously I'm not doing that
, but the total cost to build it will still be quite a bit less than the B1.5 would cost.
All that being said, I still kinda want to build up the B1.5 to run this year.
