Week 3 or 4 and the truck has not broken yet. I swapped out the 13.5 for a Reedy Mach 2 8.0. Its a bit much for me but the truck doesn't feel pokey anymore. Our new track layout is pretty technical and has a big tripple that leads into a double that has a turn immediately after....I had some spectacular crashes and the truck help up great. So far the T5M has been excellent.

I too have been impressed with the durability.

[QUOTE=Socket;13979939]You can not beat a properly built and tuned carbide based ball diff. It should and can last at least a year regardless of the motor and application it's in. The B5M/T5M diff is one of the smoothest around, and most durable when setup correctly. It continues to sound like you're not able to setup the drivetrain correctly, and are faulting the diff for this.

There is no way you can get a year out of a ball diff on high bite with a mod motor racing once a week. Lets set reasonable expectations for the ones that dont know any better.

Yep, they're almost close to a M4 or black. Almost.

Anyone have a link to a good spring comparison chart, with lengths included? I want to try out a set of stiffer springs that are also a bit longer than the AE springs.

New to st and wondering what mods are necasary and what is just bling. Also wondering what kind of battery set up is optimal. I'm thinking about going square but have no experience with these, so any input would help. I know a lot of this is matter of opinion but feedback is appreciated.

IMO, the only necessary upgrade is better turn buckles. Somewhere between necessary and bling are the aluminum hexes .

I run a square in mod. If running stock, get a shorty. I am getting a schelle slipper clutch since I am not happy with the kit slipper.
