How does your setup work on a medium/low bite track. What adjustments would you make if any.

You need the B5 composite caps and standoffs, the ALs don't seem to work. The only Alum ones that seem to fit and work are the Serpent SRX ones, but you need their standoffs and few other items too to make them work.

TYs Reedy Setup was a great starting point for a lot of us at our med-high bite track.

Not the aluminum caps, the plastic ones.

The first page has the part numbers listed, which are composite.

Maybe you can sell the Al B5s to someone at your local track

I know sometimes it's best to build the kits stock and tune from there. But this could potentially save some headaches.

My track doesn't allow the pinpoints and I've got a 6.5 for a motor.

Not sure about this particular setup. But even for the other setups, you will need extra washers. You can kind of move things around from the standard build, but it takes planning. Easier to just buy the two different size washers that HPI has or some other brand if you don't like orange.

That is super easy to polish back up. Just a dremel, some regular car polish (polishing rouge would make it easier) and a screw with a large head to keep components like washers and nuts from flying on you and you can achieve this:



Those are bushings from my old TopKart racing chassis. There are many of them and they were an expense i knew I didn't have to incur on my wallet because they would be simple enough to polish back to new. My brother-in-law was like holy crap! LOL

The trick is to place your polishing bit at an angle that applies sideways resistance while forcing the part to rotate which results in time savings and a uniformly polished surface. To do screw heads you need to find a larger nut and drop them in and secure with an actual nut to keep it from flying out and use the same technique on the heads.
