I feel it will be a good combo for our track. Might do a 3 gear trans and aluminum top shaft as well. Not really sure what other mods I will be doing as of yet.
IIRC the aluminum topshaft is included in the kit.

That's right, I think I remember reading that too, but with the 3 gear you need to use a B4 shaft anyway.

No the truck uses the same top shaft as the B5M 3 gear transmission.

A couple of questions:

Will I be able to recycle the blue titanuium turnbuckles from my old T4.1?

Will the front wheels run hexes?

Can I use the Jconcepts bodies from the T4.1 in the T5M?

Thanks guys.

Yeah, I had the numbers mixed up, its not the b4 shaft. The 3 gear uses a different top shaft than the 4 gear though.

9601 is the B4 top shaft, 91606 is the B5 aluminum top shaft.
