Think anybody will make an sct conversion? I'm going out on a limb, and selling my sct for the t5m. Sct is big around here, st not so much. I'm hoping with ae and tlr coming out with new kits, st will pick up around here. It'd be a nice fall back to convert it to sct if the class doesn't pick up.

Hope this thing handles like the B5m does on carpet.

We had 2 T5M's today at Mike's RC World in Bellingham, WA. A friendly Canadian shop got them in this week and my buddy was kind enough to pick one up for me, too. Very good truck, we were running 2-3 in the A main before my LF axle retaining screw came out (or did I forget to put it in to begin with?!). Can't wait to get more time on it as I started with a box and built my truck for the mains (with some help!). The build was great, went together just as well as my B5M did. Kit setup is a little soft and the truck needs more steering, but it's very stable and easy to drive.

Awesome

Can't wait to get mine and build it!

Gotta loctite those front axle screws in for safety (careful not to get it on the bearing). The front clamping axles and aluminum hexes seem to be not in stock anywhere quite yet.

Just revived an update. Apparently the info was false about the kits being sent to distrbuters. Looks like another week to 2 weeks before hobby stores get them. Going to my local hobby store to see what's really going on.
