wonder if xfactory will offer a longer version of that chassis to let people make a "t5m" sooner lol then a rear tower to make the shocks stand up like they need to be. too far "in" using b5m rear tower.

Yeah, looking like only by 5mm but it was just to prove the thought more then anything.

So if anyone wants to make a stretched chassis we could easily have a real ae mid t5 or sct

If you listen to the Radio Impound Podcast with AE designer Tim Tunnerman he mentions the T5 (toward the end of the interview if I remember right), and says he thinks it's going to happen but he's not sure when and can't give any details. Based on AE's past history with releasing kits I would guess December - January for a Team Kit, the trucks are historically released around a year after the buggy (when all new platforms are introduced, not talking about the dot revisions). Time will tell!! I want one!!

I thought about getting the centro kit but might just wait on a T5 Mid.

RCRD makes a T4.2M kit thats Centro based...been there, done that, what Brannon (slick1 here) makes is exactly what a T4.2 centro would be.....available, ready to make to your specs. Its a good kit but I'm waiting for the 5 series ST and SC.
