“For it being the first weekend I’ve driven the T5M I’m very impressed. It drives like a very forgiving B5M with plush suspension and a very consistent feel. I think this kit is a natural progression for those diehard 2wd buggy customers looking to add a second class. With so many interchangeable parts with the B5M it makes it very easy to support both vehicles with a limited budget and parts supply.” –Brent Thielke, Team Associated Team Manager
