I have used them on my steel CVD's, SR CVD's, and MIP pucks, all with no issue.

Have they said anything/any idea why the shock caps have been changed to composite over aluminum?

In one of their videos on Facebook they explained that the composite is very durable so making aluminum caps for the kit was unnecessary. I think itís available as an option part though.

Yeah, that and cost. But I have found that the plastic caps can slide over the retaining nut in a bad crash, so I put a 0.5mm washer on there before the nut. I do this also with my 4.0 and earlier kits because the nut would tend to scrape up the aluminum caps.

The 5.0 SR diff also has a thicker diff screw and a better spring. The plastic out drives and aluminum hubs are different for the new spring. I can really notice the changes compared to my 4.0 diff.

Are you sure the outdrives are different? I couldíve sworn the part numbers are the same in the manual.

Not a 100%. In a video with Frank Root I'm pretty sure he mentions it. And it makes sense since the aluminum hub was revised for the spring. Often TLR keeps the same part numbers after a change.

I just checked the parts, you're right --

5.0 SR outdrive is TLR232094
4.0/3.0 SR outdrive is TLR232057
