Figured I need to put together a build thread for my 5ive. I love putting together kits so it was a no brainer for which 1/5 scale I HAD to get. DDM 34cc ESP modified engine with a silenced Victory pipe. Savox servos. Killer Bee kill switch and 7200mah lipo electronics batt. I have a bunch of parts to install on her that I've been collecting from DDM. I will start posting on here as I install them. Here's a few pics of where I'm at now with her.

What is a the little digital display? Temperature?

Great to see anothe 5b to ogle over πŸ‘
Thanks.πŸ‘πŸ½ The digital display is a clock/tach/hour meter. You can see the sensor wire wrapped around the plug wire in pic 7.

WOW!!! Absolutely love the look of your 5B. Colors are spot on and the mesh takes it to the nines!
Thanks Gamefan! I wanted to try something different from drilling more holes over the exhaust so I tried the mesh. I think it came out good also.

Very very nice
Thanks Milo
very cleanπŸ‘ i like the mesh you did on the shellπŸ‘
Thanks Doug. It was the 1st time messing with Shoegoo. I really didn't like it for this application because it takes a long time to set up. I ended up having to use hot glue to hold the corners of the aluminum mesh down to allow the goo to setup with the mesh in the correct placement. :unsure:Next time I may use a quick drying epoxy.

Welcome Timetoshine. I used a small hole saw that I got from a backup sensor kit off eBay. No numbers on it but measures out to 7/8". It was the perfect size.
So Shoegoo, is it the same thing as 3M rtv 3145 ?
:unsure:Not sure Coop. Just looked at the tube and it was actually E6000. They sell it at Home Depot. I read on another forum that it was pretty much the same.

:oops::pπŸ‘πŸ½o_O That's sick man! Where are you from??

I just laid it out to what I thought looked good. I drew some straight lines to lineup all my holes then measured a good distance between marks to center the holes, then drilled with the hole saw. The small hole saw was great because it had a small drill bit to center on the line. After everything was drilled I used some Goof Off to get rid of the rest of marker that I used to layout.

TTS, I just added your car to the "Pics of you favorite builds and engines" thread.πŸ‘πŸ½
