Virtually any body can be made to fit anything- I have a TMAXX/REVO body on my XT8. The MBX6T is narrower though... it won't be a "nice" fit, the sides will be pushed out and rubbing on the rock guards.

MBX5T pinion (a.k.a. bevel gear) http://www.amainhobbies.com/product_...Bevel-Gear-X5T

Ring gear (a.k.a. conical gear)
http://www.amainhobbies.com/product_...l-Gear-46T-X5T

The MBX5T has a tendacy to push. Raise your upper arms, and run as little caster as you can. Soft (thinnest) front swaybar with the ends as far out as you can run them. Go as soft as practical on the front springs and shocks (sorry, I don't know specifics on that... I didn't run the MBX5T... I did run a MBX5 PROSPEC... I liked that buggy with either NO front bar or a thinner bar that I made from "music wire" to help it turn.)

Match the rear shocks to the front, perhaps SLIGHTLY softer for balance, but with that truck you need to concentrate on the front to get it to turn.

Adding weight to the front might help... I'd be tempted (if I were running one) to find a way to move the battery pack up front.

Hope that helps!
