Team associated b5m factory lite paint project

The B5m Factory Lite edition has been a super popular addition to the evolutionary stable of Team Associated “5” series vehicles. It contains a few upgrades over previous models but I wont rave on about that, you can find out all that stuff here. When I added one to my fleet it was a proud moment. Spencer Rivkin had just won the 2wd World Championship with the car, the 28th WC for AE. The win solidified my choice of buggy. The stock body is pretty cool, unlike the SC5m this one isn’t advertised as a Pro-line body so I can only assume it’s an in-house effort. I like the shape, not too cab forward though the roof line is a[…]

Monday January 4th – Sunday January 10th, 2016 2 weeks until Reedy. With one last local club race on the high traction carpet before I hit the California clay, a good result would go a million miles for my confidence. The Ozite carpet of Outlaw RC has been a forgiving and nurturing surface to learn on but I’m not expecting the same treatment on the OCRC clay. After a frigid early morning start on Saturday I arrived, setup and had the B5mFL on the track for practice by 8am.  Things were going well until an awkward tumble snapped a hard rear arm at the hinge pin. I only had a standard replacement, it didn’t seem to make much difference on[…]

team associated represented at diehard rc

Week 11 Monday December 28th – Sunday January 3rd 3 weeks until Reedy.   Another week, another chapter of, “Going Toe-to-Toe with Terry Yeo!” Happy New Year everyone! The week between Christmas and New Years was uncharacteristically slow to start, what with no travel that weekend and therefore no recovery I had all kinds of projects to work on but very little desire to do much at all. It must have been the Christmas dinner coma I was enduring! VRC did continue to be a big part of my training and I spent a good amount of time working on that. An hour and a bit every day, it soon builds up and my improvement is still solid. I was[…]
