However, the geometry is different and you will mess up your bump steering and ackerman angles. It isn't a suggested modification.

Someone could make different bolt on steering posts for the b6 hubs to mimic the ball stud location of a b5. There's a free aftermarket parts idea for anyone with a cnc mill.

Does anyone know if the RPM front wide bumper will fit on a B5M? The 4 hole pattern looks the same. If not do they make a front wide bumper for the B5M?

Or a way to retrofit the b6 steering section into to b5m would be cool

Completely different design. You guys want to but B6 parts on a B5m...buy the B6.

I have a basic b5m chassis with the shapeways laydown. Is anyone using the shapeways with the factory lite chassis? From the pictures of the chassis I dont think it will work because of the holes that have to be drilled for the laydown and the locations of the chassis cutouts. I just dont want to spend $50 on a chassis to have to put my standup back in.

I ran that gearbox in my FL chassis. Just didn't drill forward holes. You could always drill the holes and shim the difference if you felt like you needed to.

Shapeways.com
