I would image they would for the MM since it will be run on carpet, turf and sugar. I dont run the gear diff, so I am unsure what about it is bad.

I wonder if AE will release a good quality gear diff? Seems like the carpet guys would want that.
just a matter of preference that's all and the bling... hahahaha... just like the B4.2 FT, comes with alu stuff...

I was def hating hard at release but after talking to an AE engineer at the track I have a better understanding of their approach to the two designs. It also sounded as if the "team" kit is "stronger" in performance design than past team kits.

If the plastic parts are engineered properly the that stuff is unnecessary. I get sore at the idea that a race kit needs $100 in alloy upgrades (that can still be ruined by a broken ball-stud shank) when there has been a long history of good quality plastics in our hobby.

in the past, team kits were a 1/4 step above the rtr. Mostly it was the shocks. blue anodized non threaded shocks. In all honestly the car does not need much. I would say its on part with the box stock rb6 in the "bling" department. And that car is $200 more. As far as the durability of the plastics, we wont know much for a couple months. Same with fit, finish and slop. I am looking forward to the reedy race and I hope they run the b5 and not the centro.

As it sits, the only things I'd add for longevity are alloy rear hexes, and upgraded turnbuckles.

I like it.

I'd probably go back to the standard 2 disc slipper too.

If they're going all metric it may not really fit.

I am just going to pull a lot of stuff of my B4.2.

Digging the new lubricated ball ups. Lubricated ball cups with ribbed turnbuckles from JC, just like a Trojan commercial.

Thanks guys. Does that mean a 3mm turnbuckle works? TQ racing sells some that have the place where the wrench goes offset.http://www.tqrcracing.com/shop/produ....asp?p_id=2658

Battery choices, seems that with the mid motor, you can run saddle packs or a shorty side ways but not front to rear like the rear motor car. Is this correct?
