Also the Standard B5/B5M axles are the same size as the new 71019 HD axles.. so let me know if I'm getting closer

Now for the front... the RB6 for SC6 front axle should work with a 3~4mm spacer if that..

Don't mind the front hex, I drilled it to 5.5mm, not 5.0. My fault. Need to go pickup a new drill bit here in a bit.

Rear looks legit... .... But the Front looks like that axle is way too long..

Now that I think about it.. I think a Losi 22sct front axle and hex should work on the front... or at least the axle...

Should be around this length ..no..??

Nothing wrong with the length. Just will have a few extra threads hanging out inside the wheel. I'm really excited for the durability. SRS has a huge quad that is a little hard to clear, but I like to send it. I DNF'd both qualifiers because I was snapping the castor blocks. I took it easy in the main and got the win in Modified stadium truck.

Nice... so the B4/T4 parts were giving you trouble.... looks like you will have a Tank on your hands now...... so do plan on putting your car on a Scale to see how much it weights in at.??

No. Because I'll never be concerned with weight in modified. I am running a shorty right now, and looking like I should consider a square pack.

I was obliterating T4.2 parts in really odd spots. I think the T5M arms added more rigidity over the arms that were on it, and this caused them to be the breaking point. Now with the new metric stuff, I'll be just fine.

Cool.... please let us know when you have some sort of set up starting point... if and when you have time.... Even though the rest of us have to wait another month... ..

The part that is killing me is not having the t5m front axles.
Sweet. I need one about 50mm longer lol

Looks like Associated listed 2 new parts on there site today for the T5M

91609 CLAMPING WHEEL HEX [5.0mm]
91608 ALUMINUM ARM MOUNT +4mm [C], B << Might be the reason the rear arms are about 3~4mm narrower than the B5 ones... might be a tuning option for wheel base adjustments

On an indoor clay track (med size, bumpy and tacky for most of the day) will the truck be better with a 6.5 or 8.5 motor?

Questions??

I'm thinking it would sit in the place of the "C" mount but be 4mm shorter..??
