Crush washer between the bearings.

Anyone have a good set up for these new aluminum rear hubs? I called AE and they had no clue what even the stock setup was

Just ordered mine from racedayhobbies.com.
They had them in stock.
Hope I can get it ready for the first race at LRT.
Top step of the podium; here I come.

I found this in the B5 thread. Not sure how accurate but may give you some new input:

On the rear motor B5 you want the "0*" etching facing backwards (opposite for the mid-motor). Time to swap things around.

Ugh...they called me back and told me otherwise. Apparently the etching needs to face the shock. So it will face forward on the rear-mount, backward on the mid-mount. Sorry for the confusion. They also shared the intent to get a quick document published online to show how the hub differences convert vis-a-vis the ball stud hole mounts and how that compares to the hub inserts on the plastic version.

Whats the best lubricant to use on the gears inside the transmission case for minimum friction, i'm running stock class.

I have permatex white lithium grease, plus the normal RC greases.

I run the stock and don't recommend using anytype of grease. I use bearing oil from avid racing.

Great they told be otherwise. Wonder which is really the right direction. I had talked to someone there yesterday before I installed them. Saying on the mid motor eching needs to face foward

Just wanted to point out that this is super important. The first batch of aluminum steering racks that went out did not include the crush washer and it resulted in a gritty feel in the steering rack. If you got one of the first batch just email AE and they'll send you a replacement.

And to be clear, you put that little washer in between the two bearings on the rack. It's just like the crush washer that goes between the bearings in the front steering blocks.

I was running the 0 degree marks forward. Car handled horrible yesterday. I hope switching them will solve the issue. Find out Tuesday

Anybody know weights on turnbuckles, FT, Lunsford and JC's. Need to buy a set and just really want the lightest set.
