the losi 10t is junk ...save yer cash...i bought one right when they came out (i never touched it after break in)

the d8t is a pretty sick truck for the money....

i also own the mbx5t and its by far the funnest best handling truck i own....i actually installed an old o.s. .21 vg i had sitting forever yesterday and WOW...even the little 2 horse motor gets it moving really well...

a good question (which ive been wanting to ask ) is what parts are compatable between the mbx5t and the 6t

what parts are compatable.....Next to nothing from what I have gathered. I do believe you can use the 6/6t diffs but i think that is about it.

Close but nope they are different too. the center diff is located a little more forward in the mbx6t so the front shaft is a hair too short and the rear is quite a bit too long. The 6t is around 10mm longer than the 5t which throws everything of from the get go. I am running BCE chassis on my 5t's and even with the extra length of the BCE the 6t shafts still dont work. Wish they did but no cigar.

Your right they do share the same part number(which would indicate they are the same). But I am just saying unless the mugen guy at the races handed me the wrong dog bone(possibility) they are different lengths. I compared them side by side on all of the bones to see if he had anything I could use on my 5t.

No diff issue on the 6t.You just need to check them after break-in and add a shim if needed.I didn't do this and ate a diff.No problems since though.
