Default Reds Work Shop lay down trans

I am looking at a Reds Work Shop lay down trans that's for sale and I cant find any information on it. Has any one ran one or been around them and have any information or opinions about them. I am wanting to put it in a b5m for a local carpet track

I think the B5R is not going to get discontinued and will be the RTR and rear motor car like stated above for those super low grip tracks. B5m gone, now the B6.

I am going to keep my B5m and get the B6 and see what is faster for me.

I am going to use a few goodies from my B5M.

I run one on a high bite clay track and definitely like it better than the 3 gear. Dropped my lap times considerably. On carpet it would be a must.

To get more info or buy it you better have to contact him on Facebook
Redworkshop
The last Gen is very close to the B6
I only know the first Gen (4 gear laydown) the quality is top and handling is very cool on super high grip
Imagine a yz2 with more traction and a better damping

Another thing came up in a discussion about the B5M vs B6(D): The B6D will have way worse spare parts prices - image the front and rear shocktower. In Germany it's about 5-6€
Whoever thinks that carbon firbe shock towers will cost 5€ will be wrong, very wrong. Look at the RC8 stuff. It will cost at least 25€

So for me, beginner/amateur who tends to break stuff (although I havent in 6 months of racing) I'd hate the new car when every spare part will cost more.

As said before: If I loose to I b6D or whatever it wont because the car is the factor. It'll be because my driving sucks
