Already race a B6. I love my B5M lite and would love to go faster with it in the corners.

Depending on what body you run, you may have to trim the top portion of the motor plate as well. I've had mine for almost a year and have had no issues. Some people have reported small fitment issues, but I didn't have any.

I have heard a couple of times that the B6 laydown gearbox won't fit the B5m, but I'm still going to try.

The kit came with a few different ones but the manual says use the 3+1 C mount. The D is fixed.

Hi,

In the stock kit the rear d mount is moulded and a fixed setting.
The c mount, that sits under the gear box, has a couple of options from the kit.
(3 or 4 different c mounts are included in the kit.)
The toe and anti squat are marked on the c mounts, so run the c mount that gives the toe and anti squat that you want.

MiCk B. :-)
