+1 exactly. My same routine and same amount of packs. And I run mod for what it's worth.

Where/what are you guys greasing on the puck system? Where they mount to the bone or the actual puck itself so it has some greasers it rides in the out drive?
Either one seems as though it would spin right off the first time the gas was hit and therefore seem to be an irrevelant idea
Only reason I ask is because I have 3 race nights on my puck system with doing non of that and everything still looks brand new. Maybe I just got lucky

Mod is a lot harder on the pucks than stock. My son's OEM pucks have lasted from installation with a bit of grease and removal of dust and dirt after a race day. This is on a very well maintained indoor clay track. He got the pucks for Christmas this year and we race pretty much every weekend.

My first set when the Pucks kit was new lasted 30-40 packs no grease. Now I seem to blow through them in half that. Gonna try the grease and clean strategy.

How is your new AE chassis working?

Slacking on track time TBH. Its all built, just no time till this weekend hopefully. PITA getting the speedo mounted flush up to the battery on the new chassis because of the milling.

Replacing my pucks and out-drives on my B5m for the first time this week. Been running the car for 8 months. About 7 packs a week. They still look in decent shape... but are starting to finally "show" wear, both the plastic and out-drives. I'm changing them before they start to adversely affect performance.

I use the 3M double sided tape to mount all my electronics. If you cut some small pieces and stick them in the chassis grooves it ends up close enough to level so that your ESC will stick down really well.

I used strategically placed, doubled up, double side tape in a couple areas so things would sit flat and secure.

Default AE hubs to Schelle ball locations

I took some measurements for myself of the stock AE hubs with 'A' and 'B' inserts to compare with Schelle hub locations. You can figure out how much to shim the Schelle upper to get a position close to an AE setup. Thought I'd share.
