Thanks guys, I guess I'm way under geared LOL. I was messing around with 30/69 and 31/69 and 50* timing.

Any of you running a fan on there?

Does anyone know if the copper washers in these fit the V2 aluminum shock caps?

Doesn't look like the V2 aluminum shock caps come with an o-ring for the bleeder screw like the previous caps used to?

The V2 caps, #91450, now use a nylon washer. The losi washers should not be needed. I have used the caps with no oring or washer and had zero leakage.

Has anyone else (excluding Wildcat as I know he doesn't like this kind of stuff) purchased the FT aluminium blue shock bushings?

I installed them last night but there is approximately 2mm of slop between the nut and the shock cap so effectively useless.

Has anyone else found this?

From what I understand is as long as there isn't up/down slop you are ok, I have the Schelle ones and the shocks move in/out on the bushing but up/down is good.

Either your shocks caps are extremely worn out or you possibly got incorrect parts. I just put those on my car because i got tired of replacing the schelle bushings everyother race day. Not exagerating either. Schelle ones are awesome design but bushing is no good. The FT ones snugged mine right up and i believe the part numbers are b5 specific.

And that blue shock spacer has a black plastic bushing that slides over it... that could be what you are missing.

If you are talking about movement fore and aft, I would say absolutely no issue.

I did the same thing when I first got my B5Ms. When you buy the FT shock bushings you also need to buy part # asc91447 which shows up as B5 shock bushing ball. I wish somebody has told me that too....I raced a while before I figured it out and honestly my lap times did not go up after I added the shock bushing balls.

lol, what me? Actually, I dont care for those sort of upgrades normally. I bought a used roller for my daughter and it had the FT standoff on it. And no it did not have 2mm of up and down play. Make sure you bought the inserts with the FT standoffs.
