I posted this idea in the 2x2x6 and the 4x4x6, and thought I would just start a new spot for it. I was thinking that the same thing could be done to a 5x5 cube. There would have to be some modification to the center pieces of course but I'd imagine it could be done. What do you guys think?

In theory it is possible using tracks like my 3x3x5 concept but I do not think it will be stable. The cubies are just to small.

I gues the 4x4x6 is the one that could be stable, because you only needs hooks/tracks for the oustide cubies. I assme Tony used the concept of the 2x2x4 fro the outside cubies combined with the 2x2x6 for the center cubies. But I think tracks will make the 4x4x6 more stable as the hooks he probably used.

For the 5x5x5 I think it is not possible to use the inside center as axle, you need a little buildup track/hook for this.

So yes I think it can be done on paper, but what I have in mind as solution will not

I also think you could extend Tony's 2x2x6 to a 2x2x8, but this require a hook that goes to three layers, hence it will be unstable.
