The only option for Alum shock caps that work are the Serpent SRX caps and standoffs.

Noticed some side to side play between the rear hub and the hex. Bearing are still good but was thinking about adding a shim or two behind each hex to tighten it up a little without binding.

Everywhere else on the track the car feels ok, maybe a touch too much steering since the car rotates so dang quick.

Any ideas what to try?
I had the same problem initially running the Reedy setup as well. I did two things that helped. I pulled the rear sway bar and kept the front to tame the front steering a wee bit. I went up in rear diff oils to 5K (7/100/5). These helped me plant the rear a bit more.

Saddle pack I a bit heavier, and from what I hear from a local fast guy running that setup, its just more stable. The car isn't as aggressive.
