I have the fox shock bodies on my t4.2 and they are great ! I'm no pro but I didn't notice a bit of a difference but I love fox shocks so I'd get them regardless I order another set for my t5m when I pick it up this week

I'd rather see a FT edition of both the t5m & b5m personally.

Well since theres no Stadium Truck class at worlds, I would doubt it.
But a Factory Team kit would be nice!

So just to confirm adding aluminum hexes I'd need:

1) 8.5mm hex for the rear (no other parts)
2) 8.5mm hex for the front + the hex clamping axle (#71013)

That's it? Thanks

Also, in general, why 8.5mm? I believe there is 7mm, 5.5mm...

Yup, that's all you need


The 7mm is stock width for the b5 rear and used on the t5 when using the +4 C block.
The 5mm is for b5 using the +4 c block

It was indeed discussed briefly in not much detail back on page 54 or so, but are most of you guys preferring the Finisher or the Bulldog body. I prefer the bulldog on looks alone, so I am not interested in that side of it. LOL I just got my truck so if anyone has tried both and has some feedback in regards to performance, I would greatly appreciate your input.

IMHO the new Hi Flow body looks pretty sweet!

Default interesting...

Wondering what T5M supporters think of this;

The EOS has added two stadium truck classes. I don't run ST not because I don't like it, it's just fallen off. Love to pick one of these up again.
