some pics of the build. notice the new style of connection of the outdrive to the diff and the bearing holder. Also, a separate motor mount suggests an alum one coming

No doubt about it!

You can almost hear them being made right now! LOL

And those outdrives look to be a different material than the old stock ones. Hopefully, they are made of something a little more durable. Like what ever they make the universals out of.

Anyone know about swaybars for this kit? I am assuming the M03 bars won't work.

I see lots of references to the M05 Pro kit. Is the Pro kit being released before the M05 "basic" version? That seems a bit unusual???

Only M05 Pro is out - not to be confused with M05 R

I belive a standard M05 will be out next month (with body etc)

R - who knows.....well maybe someone does ? Anyone ?

The only important difference from the potential non-pro M05 seems to be just the alloy rear hubs and bearings?

I had not even considered an "R" version.

I'm not crazy about the clear shocks included with the Pro version, and I didn't necessarily want all the alloy parts.

I already have a brand new set of the TRF shocks, but I'll need bearings and a Mini body.

Guess I'll have to wait and see.

I would venture to guess that the PRO version is a replacement for the R version. Same idea, new name.
