Default Mugen mbx5 and mbx6 parts compatibility

Hi guys,

I just picked up a mbx5 prospec with an O.S max rz v99 engine in good condition for not much money.

I realize that it has been replaced by the mbx6, but since I'll only use it for bashing it'll do just fine.

What I would like to know is; what parts from the mbx6 can be used on the mbx5?
I know the diff cases together with the diff gears are the same, but are there any other parts?

clutch parts, diff case, and internal diff gears. everything else is different.

Thanks for the reply, guys.
I had hoped that arms and such were the same....

Ohh well, it's still a great car, so I just have to be on the lookout for mbx5 parts.
