Oh well, at least it will be taken care of eventually
just google the part # and buy some from a store that has them.

And if you're the type that likes your car to be "pretty" like Bubonic-X then you can also sport a little more $ for the Blue or Purple ones in Aluminum
That looks like a great resource, especially for someone who is trying to make all of their hardware red to match aftermarket shock parts and stuff like that.

Which shock oil would you suggest for highgrip astroturf outside? Thought about 25/35 or 30/40.

Are there oils included in the kit to create a "Basis" Setup? Just wondering
The kit comes with 32.5 oil and kit set up is 1.7 piston rear and 1.6 front with white fr/green rr springs.

so, does the buggy include the 69T spur gear as mentioned for recommended gearing in the manual from what I recall or is it the 72T?

Nice to hear this. Despite the ol' logic that the B5 rear motor should be better on mid to looser track conditions, AE Cav has already stated he has been faster in the B5m on every (or practically) surface they have tested and driven on. I think it's mostly just going to come down to personal preference, comfort, and of course consistency.

The kit includes a 72 & 81t spurs.

On another note, I was putting mine together last night and also had and issue with a rear shock. One of the shock bodies had not been fully machined and has a big step on the inside of the bore. It was enough that even the piston wouldn't go into the shock. Also one lower cap for the shock had majorly deformed threads. The good news is that I sent an email to AE last night around 10pm and got a response this morning that replacements were on there way. For now I just reamed out the shock bushings from my B4.2 and transferred the big bores over. Thumbs up to AE for prompt customer service during a hectic time. Other than that the kit went together awesome.

Weighed it this morning RTR and it came in at 1577g. Going to see what all I can do to trim some weight down but for now that is awesome for a box stock setup. Can't wait for some aluminum drive train parts to be released.

As far as first driving impressions coming from a B4.2 this thing drives beautifully. Rotates much sharper and faster. Using the same tires I was using on my B4.2 I did not have any problems with rear traction at all, just a much more agile car. Also for all the guys wondering about using this car for 17.5 no timing, go for it. Compared to my B4.2 (has Avid centering kit, MIP pucks, V2 slipper, speedy gears, shorty and centered electronics) it was a tad (and I mean very negligible) slower on acceleration which was to be expected. As a matter of fact take off was about the same or better than a box stock B4.2.

I get that it's a washer, and I know what a washer is. But what SIZE (i.e. thickness) washer is the poster talking about?
