Hubs should go on r arms just like m arms.

You just said it didn't matter. People like you are the reason newbs get confused. There are other manufacturers that make hubs that are offset and not offset for same buggy. It's does affect handling.

These are 0 offset, technically it doesnt matter. The only way it 'matters' is through the relation of the turnbuckle to the shock...if it rubs. You are the one coming in here talking about the different axle sweep....You are the one contradicting the posts of some of AE's team drivers. He obviously has it on correctly. People like me.....thats funny right there.

so since I run the b5r arms on my b5m then I should run aluminum hubs____? Just wanted to get other peoples inputs/setup. Because right now I have the aluminum hubs with the etching facing inward and my car is dialed.

No, you dont have to run aluminum hubs for anything. But because they are 0 offset they can go on either side of the car. The only thing to worry about is the offset camber link mount. This is offset in order to space the turnbuckle away from the shock to prevent rubbing/bind.

I'm only running the rear car right now.

Matt pretty much cleared up the rest.

OK we should have included a slip of paper to clear all this up. Sorry.
This is the way it should be.

The etched 0 faces the shock. This means rear motor it is forward and mid motor it's back.
3mm of ball-stud spacing makes the high position. 1mm is the low. The kit hub has 5 link length options, with the aluminum hub you no longer have the longest/ outer ball position. Be careful about the thread length ball stud you use, if it's too long it will crush the bearing in a couple of positions. 6mm thread is recommended with 3mm spacing.

I would think AE will have it up fairly soon. They added his setups last year when he won.

Thanks but I did want to make sure the above bold is correct. That would mean that the lower position with 1mm spacer would require a 4mm stud...which I don't currently see as a part. Do you simply suggest grinding/cutting a longer stud to fit?

That's the way I read it too. Anyone have some hard hubs they will hook me up with?

There is a 4mm stud available!

I used the 6mm stud with 1mm washer this weekend. It will bind in one or two of the holes tho.

It's a great part and they are extremely light for alum hubs!
