i hope that with manual and drawing i'll see something that can change my point of view....
I've seen a open diff of the BD5 today. the owner told me that his diff ran 10 runs (modified 3.5T, 5Cells) and there's absolutely no dust inside and still very smooth. The BD5 diff outdrives have a "]" return inside the pulley to prevent any dust to get inside. It works, nothing to worry about.

Well with much of the drive train fitting from the previous car surely there can be a way to find some blades that will fit.

How much did you have to pay for yours? Are they really going for $500?

I'd like to know if I should be able to use my bodies. Thanks
The bodypost on the BD were 4mm diameter, the BD5 ones are now common 6mm.
But the locations/distances between post have to checked.

I also checked that on the BD5 I've seen few days ago. The BD5 chassis is 4mm narrower than the HB Cyclone.

About all "motormounttopdeskclearencescolormatch" issues, the owner also told me he never met any of these troubles. He did not sand/shim anything. All went quite fine.
I'm waiting confirmation for the kit price in Thailand and will make decision according to.

Cheers.
