The upgrade did take the slop out but the ball cups were tight a popped off easily if I even tapped anything until they broke in. Probably should use the Xray cups also. Has anyone used the Xray cups? Part #. Thanks

My car does this on occasion, i switched the wing to the low position and it seems to help. But i also thought of moving the receiver up front.

Does it wheelie over? I run slicks on a high grip clay track and mine will wheelie a little, but the center diff prevents it from wheelying over. I run 100k in my center diff too. Maybe try to be a little less aggressive on the trigger. If your car doesn't wheelie over is it really that much of a problem?

Care to say what track it is that you race at?

You could also try increasing the antisquat.

A lot of the 413 owners at our track use the B5M Ball Cups and Ball studs and have been working great. Plus there's a lot more LHS that carry AE B5 items too, so they are easier to find.

What are they using for the rear hub carrier? I've snapped a couple outer camber link ends(the captured one, my fault) but would to switch to a more readily available style. I like the B5 option.

Still using the stock HB Rear hub and rear link and HB ball cups. With the hub mounting point being smaller I haven't found one to fit or work yet.

The B5M Ball Cup and Studs were mainly to get rid of the slop up front in the steering.

It will stand completely up if i don't let off the throttle to keep it from happening. it does create a issue because there is a couple places where you need to be on the gas hard and I'm not able to do that because it will wheelie and i have no control over the front to set up for the corner.i went to 80 center and it made it a little better but the car drives horrible so im going back to the 7/100/3

Gotcha. Not saying they are necessary by any means but I'm surprised exotek or Revolution hasn't made an aluminum hub carrier with maybe a TLR style top with multiple ballstud locations. However it is nice not popping a ballcup if you land a little sideways off of a jump.
