Default FT Low Friction X-Rings

Looking for a little advice. When using the FT Low Friction X-Rings, do you use anything on them like green slime or will the oil on the shock shaft be sufficient?

Thank you.

Personally I think you should have tried it box stock except for the rear camber plate and ti turnbuckles. Are you turning lower lap times back to back with the Centro or ?? I tried a box stock one for a day along with my RM and when it was moist and a lot of traction I was consistently faster than my RM. When it loosened up things were closer. Gonna start by testing white springs F&R and gray springs F&R.

Going same pace as old C4 right off , over all times very close.
B5 way easier to drive with the improved jumping & landings.
Can hurl the B5 harder into the corner too.

Driven um all, B5 best ever.

Already have been running base setup.
Only new changes has been the alloy hubs & rear Hard tower & arms.
inline deal is cool.
Esc in back under the water fall.
Also thinning the chassis brace.

Hang at Trcr & you'll always grinding & testing .

Default Spring cups?

I may not be getting something here, but the numbers on my spring cups seem to be all wrong. to get a matching set of spring cups I have to run 2 different numbers. For example: When I grab a "3" and a "3" they are very different sizes. Right now I am running a "1" and a "3" up front but they are actually the same size.

The numbers on the parts indicate cavity number in the mould, so used for production / maintenance purposes. I guess AE thought the difference in height would "speak for itself", so no special identification needed..

Hey George after getting my ride set up last Tuesday night i moved mine inline but i didn't cut any plastic, i only have the large receiver so putting it in front of the short pack it fit just right, i also changed out the stock slipper and put in the shelle slipper and it dropped 10g on weight coming over today before racing and try that out, i am just waiting on my screw kit, mip top shaft and new cut gears to try I'm going to try the top shaft and cut gears before i think about the puck system.

Ridge

This inline mod has the Esc placed in the rear of chassis with the inside middle of the water fall trimmed. You put the Esc under the water fall, receiver goes on rear side next to battery like we use to do with b4.

We're also trimming the side rails of chassis brace thinner so the chassis can flex more in the area in front of the water fall to the servo.
Trim the plastic in between the battery thumb screws so battery fits inside.


Doing the mod today.
