after looking them up, i was amazed at the cost, the WWHD and Anders Lind....RC10B5M laydown transmissions are $200. one looks machined, other looks printed, they don't seem drasticly different. i take it that gears and diffs are not included

any word if associated is planning a RC10B5L as a kit? for racers who race only high bite clay and carpet

The Anders kit is nice, it's 3D printed, and it's meh.

The WWHD is CNC'd machined delrin, 100% made in the USA perfection.

No word yet from AE, only internet speculation. The rumor going around is a "new" car. What does that entail? No idea. Minimally, it would mean a new cradle, transmission, motor plate, waterfall, chassis, maybe a new rear tower, camber mount, rear arms and more. It really just depends on what AE does. So a conversion kit may be pricey. You would und up buying a new car probably.

Or there may be nothing new in the mix. Until AE releases details, we are all guessing.

Good for high-grip, adds stability. AE makes a +4 rear "C" mount that does the same thing but with the Ghea, you don't have to swap out the mount, just the insert.

The AE version adds 4mm total (2mm per side). The GHEA is an in between adjustment and doesn't require the axle spacers like the +4 mount does.

replaces these? Part ASC91385


They look identical, how would you not have to take off the mount?

(Tried to post links but I don't have enough posts I guess)

You just need to remove the rear arms and you can gain access to the inserts.

I thought it was the same offset 2mm per side but your saying it's 2mm total? I have them but haven't used yet.

Correct....that's what I was told by an AE driver at least...let me see if I can snap a pic real quick.

Edit: the blue mount is an AE +4 with standard inserts, the black is a standard mount with the Ghea +2. They definitely aren't the same.

Default LCG Tranny

Well I was planning on putting an mip aluminium transmission in my b5m I'm building but after talking to mip support it is now discontinued due to poor sales. I heard only good things from the lucky people who got them in time. Ive seen a couple shots of b5m's online with a custom 3d printed one or machined aluminum. Im sure that there are gona be plenty of upcoming options with the amount of success the b5's have already had. That being said is there any company mass producing these lcg transmissions? Ive got the mip aluminum shaft,gear diff with fast eddy bearings and want a lcg tranny

Check on ebay for the WWHD transmission or contact Hobby Action in Tempe, AZ.
