BTW, do NOT buy the RT6 mid motor/Centro CT4.2 body for the T5m, it will NOT fit right.

Ask me how I know...

Which body...?? the Proline Body or the Jconcepts body?? Because it looks like the JC body would have a harder time working vice the Proline.. even if the rear shock tower sections are moved slightly back..hmmmm

Now how about throwing us a bone here on a "release date:

Rouna said it best on his podcast, or it was Kody.

The body just isn't long enough, it doesn't fit over the front end at all.

Tower's release date is pretty accurate...

I noticed the kit doesn't come with wheels? Are the wheels the same as the t4.1 wheels or should I get something else? Thanks for the help.

Same as the coming T5M, it's 10mm longer than the b5m.
