Hello all 1/5 scale racers.
After 20 years in 1/10 2wd/4wd buggy I made the switch to 1/5!

I Thought I would start this post because I could not find a post as such, where experienced 1/5 racers from RC acres could pitch in helpful info to get the new racers started. 


What does a Baja 5b need to have to be race ready?

Slipper clutch? is it necessary?
what parts brake and should have spares?
outerwear's for shocks, filter, pull start, flywheel?
aftermarket clutch bell and clutch bell carrier?
What tires for that track work best?


On a last note, ...  the baja 5bss  does not seem no where near as fun as the losi 5ive-T.  The losi is my next venture so I do not want to make this baja a money pit but would like to have some fun.  I noticed those that converted the 5B to the 5T/SC , handled better - at jumping, and seemed more fun to race in 2wd truck vs buggy class.  Is the change to 2wd truck class more fun than the 5b class?

Thank you for your help. Hope to see you guys at the track this year, since I live local.

This forum does not seem to be used much. You will have much better luck catching the racers on RC Acres Facebook page.
