One thing to think about if you need a bit more steering is adding 1mm of ackerman to the steering rack.

No, the T5M kits should start being available anytime.
The J Concepts kit has been but is sold out everywhere.
IDK about a Lunsford kit yet.

Awesome truck from the get go, 1/2 second faster than the T4.2 first day-- need to put 12mm ball studs in the rear mount though Associated(hint, hint) so you can screw the broken ballstud out from the bottomside.

Don't see that Lunsford has ever made a hinge pin set yet for them(B5m), hate the painted associated's because they always loosened up too quick on the T4's, any ideas?? Any titanium stock out there so I could cut my own??

You can buy Lunsford 3mm turnbuckles in 2 packs also, 2 1/2" and 2 5/8", whatever you want-the kit calls for 6- 2 5/8"--that's what I bought. You can also buy the factory team GT2 associated titanium set, all 6 are the 2.65" length.

Lunsford won't be making a hinge pin kit as they wear out too fast. He has a turnbuckle kit ready to go for the t5 and the best way to go is use their ball studs and black ball cups on the super duty turnbuckle as they are way smother than the stock ball cup. I tested them tonight and was short one turnbuckle so I was using stock ball cups on one corner. I had a crash in practice and split the factory ball cup, the lunsford ones worked flawlessly.

That's funny, I feel they are the best on the 1/10th market. Some do require pinching with pliers to free them up.

Agreed. The ballcups are great for me. I didn't have problems with the B4 style ballcups but the B5 cups are definately stronger. In the B4 days, once or twice a season the turnbuckle would rip thru and shatter the ballcups....but there was usually a good crash that caused it.

If you can break a B5 ballcup, you're a very talented driver. I don't mean A main talented, either.

I pinched them without a ball stud in them guess I will try with a all stud and see how that is.
