Honestly it's something you really don't want to change at all. You can, and it is a tuning option but I personally wouldn't bother with it. Get the 6 and 8.5 and be done.

I wonder if the body mount positions for the SC5m will be the same as the SC10. I'd love to be able to use my old SC10 body without having to cut new holes. I literally just mounted it before I stopped running it, so has maybe 2 or 3 runs on it.

Someone asked the same question in the JConcepts thread, and this was Paul Wynn's response.

So the body is the proline flotek correct? I bought a proline flotek for the 22 sct and the thing absolutely fit like crap. Hopefully when i sell my 22 SCT, i will have a brand new, nice looking body.

I can't find anywhere that states the Flo-Tek was supposed to fit the 22SCT. I presume you were running mid-motor? You shouldn't blame Pro-Line if you don't use products as intended. That said, I'm sure the body will fit fine.

What is the consensus on the MIP puck system? Same as T5M or SC10?

Due to the obvious sarcasm, SC10's will not work. Will the T5M ones work?

Since the B2, Associated releases a kit as the "team version" when the car is new, 6-12 months later a "Factory Team" kit is released with aluminum, titanium, and other upgrades *they branded this Factory Lite for the B5M*, this is followed 1-12 months later with the RTR version of the car.

Give it 6-12 months and the "Factory" version with aluminum, graphite, and titanium will be released (for 30-75 more than the Team Kit being released in August
