which truck are you looking at? I dont know of any 1/5 trucks, if you are talking about the GST 7.7 / Nemisis, they are good trucks, they arn't really meant for racing out of the box because of their size, but they are good bashers, I dont have alot of personal experience running one, I've got one just havn't got to run it much, but the little I have its tough as nails, lots and lots of power,

Hey...just thought I'd add a little to this. I runt he TTR hubs and nuts, love them so far, but waiting for the snow to go so I can get on the track.

As for axels/shims, I bought a Kyosho shim kit, and used the buggy axels in the rear only.

For the front I simply shimmed the INSIDE of the truggy cvd. This accomplished 2 things. The hub feels tight and smooth, AND the dog bone is A LOT farther into the drive cup, thus avoiding the notorious dog-bone pop-out problem.

For the rear, I then just swapped the buggy rear axles for the truggy ones in the rear and added 1-2 small shims just to make it perfect. I'm picky

Hope that helps out. I've found the guys at Truggyracers.com to be very helpful as I get farther into my Matrix TR Arena FRE.
