Magazine Review
With so much competition, you need a car that competes and having one that can do so out of the box is the best way to start. Team Associated's B5M Factory Lite is a buggy that can do that. The racer is loaded with equipment that racers want and it has the geometry and tuning that can get it dialed into today's highly prepped track. I was simply amazed with how the buggy handled and how much faster I was with it with little effort. AE hit the mark again, this time with the B5M Factory Lite; no wonder they have so many world titles. --RC Driver, Sept. 2015
