When I went to rm arms my car would square up faster to throttle up. the other day for the rm arms square up faster then mm arms. the other day, first time my car was almost squaring up too fast on a 180 you have to take tight. Was thinking of trying mm arms again.

Anybody running slipper eliminator with kimbrough spur, we have a small track, small jumps and super smooth was thinking of trying. What is the difference between eliminator and just tightening down slipper all the way?

A big reduction in rotating mass. I run the exotek eliminator and a KM-150 spur, and I love it. Car spools up faster for sure.

Correct -- I did interpret that incorrectly.

What I meant to ask is how he got 1.5deg of antisquat. I'm assuming you are using some sort of shimming (since AE only has 1,2,3 degrees of squat available for tuning).

If you have a body reamer, open up the very end just a tad. If you don't an X-Acto blade can do the same thing being careful. squirt a lil black grease inside and thread on the turnbuckle. thread them on and off several times to get the threads cut in well and you should be good to go! Wipe off any excess grease after your done!
Thanks everyone. I ended up having to call AE. They said they have had a handful like that. They are sending me replacements. Thought I was going crazy there for awhile!

This is a question that you will get all kinds of answers to.

But my opinion is the only things you need to get for this car to be extremely competitive in stock or mod is the flat arms and tower and the b5 rear motor rear arms (those are not a must but deff allow you to drive the car harder bc they give you more grip). I would also recommend getting a Schelle bearing kit bc the stock bearings suck! Also get some aluminum hexes for the rear of the car. And last get either the Schelle Nova slipper or a V2 associated slipper bc the VTS is not a very consistent slipper, it really is to much for a 2wd car.

Now if you're running stock I would recommend a puck system and an aluminum top shaft, only bc the mid motor is a little on the heavy side and this will not only take away some weight but it also lightens your drive train so you can get up to speed faster.

These are really the only things you need for the car. The car is extremely competitive out of the box these things just help it be even more competitive.

Hope this helps!

Which kit fits the best? I just bent a front camber turnbuckle a few times now and want to swap them out.
