You need the 2.65 all around. The t4 has 4 2.65 and 2 2.80

Rear motor 3 gear, and mid motor 3 gear, both have the pinion and spur on the right hand side, with the pinion shaft rotating opposite direction of the tires.

Mid motor 4 gear, has the pinion and spur on the left hand side with the pinion shaft rotating in the same direction as the tires.

The shaft always spins the same direction inside the motor itself. I do not understand why this is so hard for everybody to follow along with it.
Right on. Nice explanation. Bedtime.

Hard to say.....but if I was a betting man I would think it would be about 3 weeks away
So 60% of the time I am 100% correct

The only stadium truck I drove was a old losi lxt with a 13.5 brushed motor and I thought that thing was fast. I cant wait to feel the power of a brushless system in one of these trucks ...

Who knows .. but one thing is for certain... Associated has their hands tied with the Port issues and waiting for stuff to get off the ship's .... that's not to say that parts for the T5M have not been trickling in......

Either way... we are all in for a treat as soon as this truck get's in our hands
