You're set!

Thank you very much, Chris

Didn't see #91305 and #91306 in the parts list for the B5, so thanks again for pointing me that direction.

I would do a YZ2 gearbox before the shapeways. Its a bit more work but alot better quality.
Are you running on clay or turf/carpet?.

Also, if you run the YZ-2 gearbox, you can use the YZ2 shock tower and B6 arms to run the shocks in front

After spending all this on a new gearbox diff arms and tower might as well just move up to a b6 imo. It is designed to be able to better run at the lower ride heights needed if you are running carpet and turf. On clay the laydown route is best put into the b6d since it is an 25.00 upgrade.

Gearbox conversion is aboit 60 bucks, front mounted shocks are not really needed on all but
the highest grip tracks, 60 bucks is a long way from 310.

4 gear is a little more stable and offer a little more on power traction
3 gear is more directive on brake/off power, and more handy on jumps

What is the yz2 conversion? I did the shapeways conversion and it's ok, but would prefer something that feels a little more solid . . .

Thanks everyone for your input and information. I should have mentioned in the initial post, but im running on high bite clay. I believe the yz2 conversion is the gearbox from the Yokomo yz2, as well as its motor plate....could be wrong.
I think if i do end up converting the car to a laydown, ill go yokomo for quality sake.

Basicly your installing a YZ2 box in your B5. The front 2 gear box holes need to be opened up a bit with a dremel. You can still put your old gear box back in if you like.
2 More rear gearbox holes need to be located and drilled, you will also need to drill the new holes for the water fall brace. Last you will need to fabricate a small plate
from the gearbox to the shock tower. The gearbox comes as a kit(YOKZ2-302C3) with the 2 halves, motor plate,and idler. You will reuse your topshaft and diff.

No problem! I did this to my T5M (granted different shafts since I didn't want to buy the Kashima shock bodies and all that is required for that. Made the shocks SUPER smooth!

What all do you think is require for the kashima bodies?

You can use v2 shafts/Pistons with either the stock bodies or kashimas. Every part is completely interchangeable with either.

When the Kashima shocks came out it was announced you had to change to the V2 shafts and pistons. That's a decent chunk of change for the broke guys out there... Either way the kashimas are stupid pricey and not totally necessary IMHO. I could get some kyosho velvets for less $ and they were always expensive to guys on a budget! But with the ti-nitride shafts and x-rings I think they're almost as smooth as velvets.

Hate to have to tell ya, but you broke your right rear arm and lost your left rear swaybar link. In case you hadn't noticed...

That's a false assumption. You do NOT need to use v2 shafts with them. All parts are completely interchangeable.
No matter if you use the kit shock bodies or the kashima's they both accept the same internals(kit or machined) same orings or xrings, v2 shafts and Pistons or kit shafts and v1 pistons.
The kashima bodies are a better coating and they do provide slightly smoother shock action. Value or worth is up to each user.

My bad; nonetheless the kit bodies, ti-nitride shafts, and x-rings make for a smooth shock!
