    cheers topper thats very helpful mate.
    also to gareth that is an awesome idea dude.
    if you already have a 5B though you could always just buy the chassis parts and leave the rest to save you money. if you alread have wheels and tires then just use the 5B ones unless you want the real scale look

    Fair comment, although have been looking at 5t and haven't even run the 5b in yet ..

    On your site may i add, cheaper than modelsport uk

    By the way, whats your best price on an rtr 5t ? As advertised or better ??

    Bought the v2 rear dom, pullstart prefilter, main prefilter and fuel cap from you last night, cant wait to fit

    That's because the tires for the T have deeper side walls, other than that they are pretty much the same.

    If my 5t has not sold by this coming Saturday I will probably be breaking it which means all of the parts for a 5b to 5t conversion, including a brand new never fitted to a baja, black HPI bodyshell will be available as a package and will be a lot cheaper than the prices quoted.

    Just depends if there is enough interest in it really.....

    I have now listed all the parts needed to convert your 5b to a 5t in the for sale section which includes a brand new genuine black HPI truck body. I hope this will be of use to someone on here.............
