I guess I should have looked a little harder before answering the question. Yikes, foot in mouth. It's nice they include that arm in the kit now.

Certainly this link suggests that is the same as the V4 two slipper..and it is a option part for the V5

But isn't the center diff unit housing wider than the V4, so not sure how the 2 way slipper would fit in, if that makes any sense?

From the pictures the motor mounts are set a lot different, the slipper center diff is gonna be nice for carpet.

The two-way slipper could fit directly, actually i dont know the messurements from those drive shaft plates, it was just a guess, as it looks like wider, than the drive shaft pins itselve.

For the slipper/centre diff mount, yes, it is wider, but if you look at the picture of the blank chassis on the kit page, you can see, that there are mounting holes inbetween the standard motor mount posission, so i guess, you can mount it closer to each other, may you'll need a longer centre drive shaft too!?

We will see exactly after the first shipments...

Yep, I see what you mean. So maybe would need to use the center drive shafts from the V4 as well when using the 2 way slipper?

All the aluminum parts have been great! Never any issues with any of my cars.

good stuff then. will keep a close eye on it. At the upper end of my price range and i don't usually buy new, but this could buck that trend.

Seriously....

The V1, V2, V3 and V4 have all been out for a long time. It's the same base car with some updates. I'm sure there is a pretty well known short list of wear or likely breakage items.

I have had my v3 for a couple of years and have broken a couple of front arms and one rear arm. That's all I have broke except a rear drive shaft last week but that was my fault and I wouldn't worry about having a spare.

the only similarities between the older versions and the V5 is the front steering rack forward. It does share the rear arms and hubs with the 2wd cars. I plan on getting the following: front bulkhead, spindles, and arms, inner front hinge pins, rear inner hinge pins, rear arms, and hubs. In the past year and a half the only thing I've broken on my v4 car has been a front tower (didn't prep correctly), three front arms, and two spindles. Of the three arm breaks only one was my fault. It's a solid car. But those things I mentioned above are just precautionary, hate to be out a whole race day if some thing random happens.
