I am thinking of switching to run an associated, and I was particularly interested in getting a B5M Lite kit.

My question would be, what parts are required to change it to a 4 gear mid from a lite kit? 4 gear B5M gearbox, idler gears. What about the lay shaft? Is the B5M layshaft different than the light, and I assume I need a 4 gear motor plate and gear cover as well.
Also if I wanted to convert the lite to a rear motor. Is there anything else required besides the B5 conversion?

doing this from memory.. to go from 3 gear to 4 gear, you would need the 4 gear box (v2 for better mesh), extra idler gear and 2 bearings for it, non-v2 top shaft with 2 more bearings if I'm not mistaken. The v2 top shaft is meant for the 3 gear with smaller bearings.

The v2 4 gear case uses the v2 top shaft and 5x10x4 bearings

Push on entry actually. The after pic is after 2 12 minute practice runs so the weight really wasn't bad

Why switch to the 4 gear when you haven't tried the 3 gear yet? The car is amazing out of the box with no additional parts required.

Got a hold of SLRC. Emailed him through Facebook. All I can say is that if you think the Lite is awesome out of the box, you should try it with an SLRC chassis. It is not a milled stock chassis. Its a whole different chassis, made from a different aluminum, that is much higher quality than a mass produced stocker. I bought a car that had one installed already and now I've ordered one for each of my B5Ms and T5M. You can really feel the difference. They are really incredible. Best single product that I've bought lately.

Welcome to the dark side Dino I too switched from dex210 to the B5, I still have the 410 though, are you dropping all your Durango vehicles? Did they pull there sponsorship? You will be very happy with the B5/M it's a good car with lots of support.
