Somewhere back in the thread someone mentioned running an SWorks S104 wing so I ordered one. Easy fit and looks about 3 times thicker than the stock wing.

I run the sworkz wing. I run one on my B5M for club racing and practice. They last forever. My daughters is 6 months old.

Has anyone tried replacing the ball cups on the suspension links to remove slop? Or does anyone know a trick for tightening up the fit of the cups on the balls?

I think I'm going to remove the servo saver so it should be easy to find something less sloppy there but I'm not so sure about the camber and steering links.

I already have the RCShox ackerman bar installed but I really want to get some more slop out of it. Whether it makes a difference on the track or not it will make me feel better about the buggy.

you could try the AE B5 ball cups. They are over engineered and take a while to get any slop.

From what I've read, most people either run the stock servo saver or remove it and go without one, as I intend to do.

OK, it was probably a post of yours that I saw. It's definitely beefy and I like that it's colored rather than clear.

Pop the cup off and place an empty parts bag or simular plastic over the ball stud and pop the cup back on, tear the rest of the bag off and it tightens up the slop without becoming too tight.

Interested as well. I have been eyeing it but there isn't much feedback out there.

i believe the tlr 22 clamping hexs will work seeing that the 22-4 rims are the exact same size and offset as the d413 rims. both front and rear

Had to try his myself. Went tonight for practice, and it's awesome!

It's the Nationals setup but with 37.5/32.5 shock oil. A slight change I also liked was one hole in on the rear tower from what the setup says.
