its a 5R-prospec ... cbf upgrading to a 6 so i just pimped out my 5r .. its got a full carbon fiber chassis and alot of other mods .. different shocks and yes a 5t front shock mount cos of the way the pins come through them i needed the right thickness , so instead of making it, i just bought the 5T carbon one and trimmed the ears down a lil so it looks ok .. and it was cheap being for a 5t. the 5r never had carbon shock towers as a option. the buggy is extreamly light , the use of very thin carbon/kevlar worked out great and kept up the strength. to all the haters when i first posted the pics a few months back said it would snap and the rear shock tower was to weak being so thin .. well iv put a heaps of tanks through this and its still "all gravy , baby " have not re-made any part. the only thing i did was to switch to a one piece CNC engine mount for added stiffness around the engine ..
Defanitly is a head turner. I was a lil shocked. My thought was mugen? Im seeing durango, looked to be losi diff cases(didnt look to close but defanitly arent 6 style) AE rear shocks? Crazy lookin rear tower, etc. looks good and hey if its tough and wins then its a good truck!

cheers bro .. the rear shocks are truggy o'donnell super big bores or what ever there called lol .. it also runs a lil jammin crt.5 radio box thats just big enuff to fit the bat and radio gear. theres also a carbon chassis brace "stood up right " that goes from the rear diff case to the center diff where the radio tray is making it stiffer , thats why i can run very thin carbon with out it all snapping anything.
