I'm thinking try shimming the entire axle / bone in more, but there's not much play there now...
Pick up the axle shims from AE.

I'm about at 1.5 years on some of the arms... or its been so long since i broke one that I don't remember. Though they probably need to be replaced. What I find wears out often are the oem plastic shock bushings. I probably should replace those every other month if not every month (i usually race twice a week)


You mentioned that it's the front end that's an issue. Sounds to me like your local tracks have some hellacious jump faces or you're trying to knock down the walls/pipes a bit much.

For the conditions you stated, green, white, gray fronts and green and white rear is all you'll ever need. No sense in buying the entire spring collection.

Just ordered a Factory Lite kit. Going to be racing stock beginner class.

So for I have a Tekin RS GenII and a GenIII 17.5 motor. The steering servo I have is a Futaba S9570SV. For batteries I'm looking at either the Vant 4600 shorty or the Turing Ultimate 4600 shorty. Haven't bought the battery yet though.

Any recommendations for set up on a tight indoor clay track? I ordered the grey and green springs front and rear for some tuning options.

Figure out what kind of grip you have and get the right tires. Then you can look on team associated website and get a good setup to start from there. Clay tracks can very alot in grip so make sure you pick one that's closest to your track

don't know if this has been asked but quick question, building the new CE kit, they say run the rear motor rear arms on the setup sheet but they arent included in the kit? is this correct?? the kits only comes with the regular MM arms, both sets of front arms are included but not the RM rear arms.

Pretty sure they are the real motor arms In the kit.

I recently bought B5m conversion kit and converted B5RM to B5M.
Now I'd like to try 3 gear tranny.
Do I need to buy 3gear top shaft or the one included with new conversion kits is universal?

You actually have a couple options. Depending on weather you go with the kit 3 gear, or MIP for example.

The kit top shaft will work for either, but if you go with a light weight, then you will have to use shims/different bearings.

(see attached pic for example)

Hope this helps
