hey rick would the damper tubes and cross brace/pod plate work on 10r5? thanks

I noticed that the rear lower pod plate got a different part number.
What is the diff ?

R5.2 part number is 4692, R5.1 is 8511
The 4692 was new for the inline chassis. So now it's used in the 5.2 kit.

From what i can see you will need

1 x 4700 Motor Mount Bulkhead
1 x 4701 LR Bulkead
1 x 4702 Motor Mount Brace
1 x 4703 Upper Pod Plate
1 x 4704 Chassis Brace
2 x 4705 Front Bulkhead
1 x 4707 Side Sprig Retainer
1 x 4708 Damper Tube
1 x 4709 Damper Tube Shaft
1 x 8828 Cup Set
1 x 31322 Arm Mount Bushing

I think that is all (someone correct me if there is anything missing)

Kind regards,

Chris
What do you need the arm bushings for?

Are the mounting points for the motor/left side bulkheads different? Would it be possible to install 5.2 motor/left side bulkheads on a R5 lower pod #4602(Sorry, I ment the brushless lower rear pod #8511), then use a 5.1 upper pod plate #4688?

I edited my post. I have been running the brushless pod for so long forgot it wasn't the original piece.

The alloy front bulkheads are threaded so its like the TC6.1 now where you screw into the bulkhead and not the arm bushing. Its a much more user friendly design
