you sure about the AE caps on the rear? I Put them on this week. My camber link hits the mount before the arm is all the way up.I almost want to put the original caps back up and see the difference.

Looks like some notes at the bottom might address that? Or is that a separate issue?

No excuse to have countersunk the screws and used metric hardware with 1.5mm hex on top. Really wanted to like this kit (my first nitro was an HPI and I loved it!) but to get disappointed at step B.

wel, since i just rebuilt mu shocks, I tossed a couple orings on each shaft to serve as external limiters. I kinda want to keep the AE caps on because my rear shocks popped off a few times in practice

Since you quoted me, I personally had no issues building my diffs but I can understand what you are saying. When I worked on my B44, I realized allen keys just didn't work, so I quickly upgraded. Surprised how much of a difference a quality hex wrench makes.

Anyway, my comment was around the number of types of hex wrenches needed. This kit is inline with other kits. For me, even if there is just one screw, then I need to have a wrench. So 1 screw or 100, I will need to carry that wrench.

I'm positive, check out the witness marks in the photos (bumpstops removed to show bind in photos). The AE cap are about 1.5mm shorter to centerline of standoff hole this will allow additional up travel which is causing the bind. This is a non-issue with the stock caps.

Found some M2x10mm screws with 1.5mm hexes on them in my LHS ... Why .050 HPI!?!?
