Happy BDay Vito! Save yourself some time and dremel out everything from previous posts and install rm front and rear Arms, front shock tower , locktite rear hub ball studs and front axel screw right away. Enjoy the build, one of my favorites to date.

I hope people in this hobby can figure out what is upside down when installing the rm arms.
He probably has you on ignore.

Using b5r rear arms flipped DONT move the arms 1 to 2mm forward. Its .75mm forward to be exact.

It's pretty well established that the RM arm mod is 2mm forward.

I'm not seeing the modification done. Are they grinding on the steering arm, changing/grinding out shoulder bushings or ??? I was under the impression that new shoulder bushings with various thicknesses on the shoulders would be coming out so you could adjust this.

Does anyone else have other cooling mods they've done?

One's i'm currently aware of are the motor band mounted fan, waterfall mod/mount.

Anyone doing scoops or vent holes on the body? gator teething or shimming the gear cover?

My motors currently are running okay. I've been thinking about helping that out a bit in the future but I'm currently mired with a heck of a time keeping my tekin rs cool. It has the latest software (i believe) and I'm in blinky mode with some wimpy mod motors (10.5/13.5). We use a lot of heavy brakes on the currently layout and I'm sure some of that is the problem for the regular RS. Unfortunately with the 10.5 (same elec setup as my previous B4 and never had an issue like this) i've been between 23/81 and 27/81 with very little speedo change (170F!) so I've dropped to a 13.5 thinking maybe something is wrong with the motor and it has not gone down much. Can't drop the gear on it much more either as the 17.5s nearly walk me down the front straight now! Transmission seems okay but I guess I need to take it apart and verify.

So let's see some of your ideas!

run without a body....:-) I would run a lower turn motor that will run cooler. MM cars always run warmer. I gained 30 deg trying to run MM.
