Had one pre-ordered from tower. Said mid-match, then mid-April. Who knows. Went with serpent until the b5m is readily available.

I tried just the nut and just does not want to tighten down right for me the stock setup will but not the avid just slips instead of tighting down I've even tried to keep out drives from spinning just won't tighten up past certain point
If this all makes sense

Finished up my build today. I got to the last bag with the wheels, missing the hardware no wheel nuts. I can live with that, I am glad not to be missing anything that is not yet available as others have reported.

so for all of you struggling with the turnbuckles. I was talking to a kid at the track this weekend. Maybe 14 years old. I asked him if he drilled them, used chap stick or grease. He looked confused and said he just screwed them on. That they went on easy.....lol. I imagine most you just hulking on these things and this 110 lbs kid soaking wet put them on with no issue.....

He must have purchased the factory team kit.

I was able to build the ones on my B5 with just a dab of Chapstick. Able to hand screw them on.

The issue is not getting them to screw together....the problem is that they are sticky and difficult to adjust once installed. They should not "snap" when adjusted...if that makes sense...

Got my car built , only hold up is Esc and the slipper setup my vts won't snap on the spur so it sits a little cockeyed, and as stated earlier I can't get my avid nut to turn past a few threads.

Why didn't you use the nut from the kit for the avid slipper? Im willing to bet the nut that came with avid slipper isn't 4mm like the topshaft for the B5

I did the avid didn't come with a nut, just a silver spacer that's not 4mm, so till I can try and drill it out I was going to use vts slipper but it won't snap together right
