A few days ago, MIP released a teaser pic of a new aluminum motor mounting plate for the Team Associated B5M but what the real secret was what that part will be bolted to, namely the upcoming MIP B5M 3 Gear Aluminum Transmission! MIP has announced that they’ve finally finished the prototypes for the new B5M transmission. It takes out the 4th gear to reduce overall drag and enhance rotational efficiency. MIP says this new part will make the largest difference in stock racing and will be a great tuning aid for the mod class as well. The transmission is crafted from 7075 aircraft grade aluminum transmission and should be released later this year. Sorry, there is no word on pricing yet. Stay tuned!
Update: The MIP Box B5M Aluminum Transmission has been released!
