In my opinion if you aren't sponsored, or if you aren't super loyal to any one brand the SMC is not a bad choice at all. Every SMC product I own far exceeded my expectations, and the price is right.

Thanks, I'm just getting back in to this after some time away. (The car/truck I had were B3/T3).

I don't have my kit yet, so I had no idea what that might be.

+1 I use this tape to hold the flybarless controller (and pretty much everything else) to my helicopters. Nothing has ever even come close to falling off or even getting loose.

The force applied to this tape on a helicopter is far more than it will ever see on a car.

Anyone got any info on the FT ball stud mount ?, its different height to the plastic one , can be mounted both ways with different results.
Just wondering what setting is the equivalent to the stock plastic one.

I finally broke my plastic one about a week or two ago. I thought I had kept it, but turns out I threw it away. I asked Mr. Trimmings to verify something for me yesterday in relation to the ballstud height on the aluminum piece vs plastic, as he still had both pieces.

Basically, think of it like this:

Plastic with 0 washers = 0
Aluminum with short side up = -2
Aluminum with raised side up = +2

Example: I liked my inner rear ballstud height at 0 with the plastic piece. So I need to add a 2mm washer under the ballstud with the aluminum piece short side up to remain at "0" setting.

Hope that makes sense.

The TLR vertical ballstuds are awsome. Personally I can't wait until I can get my hands on some for the B5's too.
Love the vertical ballstuds

I saw the front hexes and the 5.5mm tool on there as well as the hard front towers and arms. I grabbed the tool, towers and arms myself.

Totally interested in the alloy rear hubs, never had an issue with the vertical ball stud, had them on my B4.2s and have them on my Caster S10b.
