Just got announced an hour ago...it will definitely get its own thread...

And I don't know where you race but We just had to start a second heat of ST on Wednesday nights, Open and 13.5 superstock...each gets 6-10 entries per night. Its one of the growing classes along with 4wheel buggy

Mid-Wisconsin. We get roughly 100 entries a night, and about 3 ST's..we have a competitive stock SCT class and our biggest class is obviously mod buggy.

I'm wondering if they will just release the mid motor kit only and just sell a rear motor conversion kit for those that want that option.

The parts listing for the T5M indicates a V2 4 gear transmission case. says it's for the T5M but has B5m in the wording. What was updated on the V2?

Good catch. Maybe a geometry change for more rear bias while still mid motor (allowing the mid motor to work when it traditionally wouldn't - a la X Factory).

I drove my boys t4.2 today. The first since my rustler 15 years ago. Really nice truck. I was actually impressed with how it handles. Luckily the st class here is about 15 drivers strong. I put one on preorder also. Can't wait to run it.

My "guess" is, the slightly altered the mesh of the gears. The tranny says it will fit the B5M also. I like that the truck comes with low friction rings, alum topshaft and alum ballstud mount. With the B5M being out a year, I kinda thought that the ST would be a FT since all of the parts exist now.....

Could be. Looking at the side view of the new transmission, it doesn't appear to be drastically different. I wonder if it is a rolling change? My B5M is just a month old and has the same gears as pictured in the T5M transmission. Too lazy to go to my hobby room and check the top shaft...
