Quote:
Schelle introduce a new 2-piece hub concept for the Team Associated B5 and T5 platform. The 2-piece design with a replaceable upper cab increases adjustment and durability as the upper part can be spaced away from the main hub with ballstud shims, allowing fine “in-between” adjustments for the rear upper link. True to the kit geometry, the zero degree toe aluminium hubs are of a symmetric design with shared parts left and right. Plastic bearing inserts and hinge pin set screws make for the highest possible precision and slop-free parts fitment. The upper cap design reduces leverage on the outer ballstud, as well as increasing shock clearance for the turnbuckle. The hubs come in black or blue anodising and are available now.

I'm unclear as to what you mean. Could you elaborate?

Pucks kits have 7 smaller thrust balls and 1 washer is grooved (see MIP instructions , upper right). Stock diff balls thrust kits have 6 balls that are slightly larger. the question would be what does the wear on the grooved washer look like since one would assume that the grove matches the smaller MIP balls and not the larger stock balls.

The B5m Lite and the T5 (and virtually everything else) is being delayed by the dock workers strike on the west coast. They're just sitting there waiting to be unloaded.

USA Today reporting last night the deal was reached, so they could be starting to work on things starting tonight it says.

Feel bad for business involved with stuff that is rotting like produce or other time sensitive items.

I heard the dock fork lift drivers make like 120k a year. I don't know if true but glad they got it figured out. Dock contract is good for 4 years so ship that shit so we can get a wrenchin'.

You can run an optional thrust bearing in your diff. I have run the Avid and now run the Casper RC thrust and its great, lasts a long time and really smooth.
