Wish they had axles. Will Durango inner shafts fit associated outers?

Those don't look like AE shock springs to me. Truck looks sweet.

Wow, nearly $20 for a pair of springs. They'd better be good!

I want to be certain I'm totally clear and correct... Will the B5 front clamping axles and hexes fit and work on the T5? Is AE using these exact same option parts on both kits?

Also will the current Jconcepts T4 fin turnbuckles work and fit? Change of threading from SAE to metric coming? New lengths needed?

No to all, bigger front clamping axles and hexes, turnbuckles are all 2.65".

Looks good
But I may just buy another ST as I want a rear motor for low bite dirt track
And I am not interested in buying a mid mount to then have to then go buy a conversion kit which will cost more money. Maybe they will just keep the t4.2 around for longer

My track is dirt track not carpet and not prep down with sagur or whatnot
I think that is the fun type of offroad?.......for me!! (is carpet offroad......not in my mind . )


It's a shame the T5m doesn't seem to share more parts with the B5. If you want the B5 and T5 it's nice to have similar parts , I know all parts can't be the same but ......

there won't be a conversion from T5 mid to rear is what they have said. I am sure you will be able to get the 4.2 used in the forums for LONG time for rear motor die hards.


T5 and B5 have a ton of similar parts, check out Amain tab on compatibility, alot of parts say B5, B5M, T5M compatible. Just a few parts, arms, chassis, axles, and a few odds and ends but most are the same so if you have a B5 then a T5 is the way to go for similar parts and metric sizes.
