With the release of a new buggy, has anyone heard rumors of a new stadium truck?

I'd agree with this assumption, I think it will be some time yet before we see a T6. I'd tend to think if and when it happens they will have a single kit based on what combination of configurations are popular with the people running B6/B6D's.

I was about to purchase a T5M when the B6 was announced so I ordered a B6D instead of the truck. I'll probably end up passing all together on the 5 series truck and just keep running my CT4.2, I rarely run truck so holding off on upgrading another year is no big deal for me. I was just getting bored and felt like putting together a new kit, the B6D will scratch that itch until they update the truck again.

I've got to believe a new wheeler will be next kit coming down the pipe. Everything other platform is fairly up-to-date.
I might jump on a B6 kit real soon. I've got pretty much all the goodies on the truck that I need or want. And I've been itching to get into buggies. Torn between the B6 or the Losi 22. I know they're both gonna be good, but which one will be best out of the box? And which will handle wear & tear better?

I am saddened with this recent phenomenon of skipping the Factory Team kit evolution. Hope this isn't the wave of the future. Those extra 2 words mean so much to us!

For REAL! I know the newer old kit is still competitive but in the hands of average joe it is just far too fragile!

Highly doubtful but we'll see I guess

Besides the MIP topshaft and cvd kit what else can u get for lightweight transmission parts? Ceramic bearings in the trans worth it at all? I not sold on the idea but haven't tried it...

So tell me..
When I switched from my tricked out blue chassis rc10gt to the rc10gt2 I was faster with the gt2 straight outta the box.

If I go from my t4.2 to the T5M, will I be faster out of the box?

I was just curious if people felt it was that good of an upgrade. I felt the gt2 handled better with no hopups or bling, which translated to more consistent laptimes than the old truck. I guess I was just wondering if people felt that was the case with the T5M compared to the T4 line. Guess I might have to sell some stuff and pick one up and see for myself.

Just from the parts being stronger I would say up yes, for finishing more races.
