To some extent, it keeps us moderator's and those who keep to themselves entertained.

IMO AE threads are the most entertaining. Some of that comes at the expense of WC, lol. But seriously, the AE guys can argue about anything.

Tried the x-rings in my shocks. Just got my B5M built last night. They are such a great fit. Just wanted to let people know that I think it's worth the extra money. Overall the tolerences on this shock are much better. I was surprised to see that it was noticeable during assembly. I did a total rebuild on my B4.2 big bores last week and built my B5RM the week before.

I am very impressed with the improved quality and am not really sure what issues people are having with them. I was just about to outfit my 4 AE cars/trucks with Kyosho shocks before I bout my B5RM. I was still tossing the idea around after building it. Then I tried the x-rings. Now I think I'm gonna run them for a while before I make up my mind. I think I will end up sticking with the AE shocks in the end tho.

Just my 2 cents

I have the same charger. Do you know if there's any way to disable the extremely annoying beep song it plays when a battery is done charging? I may cut the wire to the speaker if not.

Assuming ceramic coated steel, two 0.5m balls would weigh 2,311 lbs (1051 kg). Heck of a driver's stand you got there.

If you want it done quicker the b4.2 big bore shafts are the same size and probably in stock at LHS.
