oh, you probably wont like the saddles in the car for 17.5. The car is already pretty heavy. You might want to actually work on getting the weight down some.

Interesting the B5 and B5m are both in the web special section of the AE website. They seem to put stuff there to close out the inventory...... Makes me wonder if a FT version is in the works to replace them.

Probably. My car is already FT specs. So no point really.

True, if there is one don't see much more they could come out for one. They have a full line of really cool stuff now!

Every single FT part they could come up with is already out. People would just save some money when buying a new kit. They could improve the slipper or at least put a vented 2 pad back in the car. Because not even the team drivers use the VTS, lol.

I was kinda thinking the same thing, seems like the car is a little on the heavy side. I haven't weighed it yet as I don't have a scale anymore.

given that you added weight with all of that aluminum, lol. I am guessing around 1650g

B5R arms and shock tower
3mm trailing axle insert
1mm on each side of the caster block
1mm bump steer
arms flat ride height

For the rear I changed:
B5R arms
2* antisquat
0.5* hub insert
"A" ballstud hole, using the B (2 hole) link insert, B inserted in the down position
Forward hub spacing
0mm inner ballstud spacer (camber link)
1.6 Pistons, 30wt oil, 3 limiters
bones level ride height

This really wakes up the front end. It has very aggressive turn-in. When I have more time at the track I will experiment with front tires before changing anything.

Other than the slipper, what are some of the must haves you are all running off the stock car?

I have heard talk of clamping hexes for the rear, what benefit do those have? My hexes seem to stay locked to the pin.

I know the rear hub ball cup mount can flex on the composite side causing some backing out. Though loctite seems to take care of that.

Only ran the car one weekend so far.. .and the only thing that I found was the slipper. The car was stellar everywhere else.

Sounds like Avid is probably the way to go as far as slipper is concerned. I'll find out soon enough...lol

Okay so I have been trying to get through all of this thread and filter through all the drama...haha I am wondering where the grub screws are being installed. Sorry for it has been answered a million times but Hundreds of pages of reading is mind numbing and so I figured I would ask and then go back to my reading


***Looked up the Manual online since I bought my buggy used and found it... I will continue ready.. Only approx 250 more pages to go...haha***

There was problems with people snapping axles, the clamping hexes seemed to fix this issue.

All depends on what your looking to accomplish. I can say I have nearly $300 in aftermarket in my car and now am starting to find the setup I need to compete at the Stock Nats next year.

Read the manual, it tells you where they go.
