I don't plan on taking the setscrews out of the axles, hence the use of the red Loctite. No Loctite on the lock nuts, that's why its a lock nut.

Seriously... DO NOT use red loctite haha. Bad idea. Blue loctite is totally adequate.

I know this will drive some of you crazy, but I work full time and have 3 babies at home... got my kit Thursday afternoon, and this is where I'm at now. Just need to do shocks and electronics. The build is nice. The plastics have a higher quality feel and look to them. Hopefully they hold up as nice as they look/feel. I've been out of R/C for almost a year. Can't wait to start driving again next week

I'm in the same boat, I work 11 hours a day (busy season for my CPA firm), go to grad school, and my daughter is 8 months old. It took me like 6 weeks to put together my Tekno truggy.

I would love to get a B5M but it would probably be June before I got to drive it.

Would a 3x14mm set screw work better (you mentioned the 3x12 came up a little short)? Any issues with clearance having the nut there as opposed to the screw?

Hi guys

Hoping our UK MM cars will be delivered soon!

Can someone with a semi built kit measure the area of the chassis that holds ESC and RX please? In mm's if possible. Planning!

Plus what colour are kit wheels? Any tyres included or is B5 following recent (probably sensible) trend of no kit tyres at all?

Thanks for any info, really looking forward to building a new car.

Yeah, the 14mm would be better, I will get some ordered tomorrow. No clearance issues at all with the nut. I do think that you should use a low profile nut though, it may be a but tight with standard height nut.

O ya, nothing wrong with using red Loctite if you don't want it to come out, I have been using red for YEARS on cars and helicopters. It does make it difficult to take apart which is why I wouldn't use it for anything that has to come apart, blue probably would be okay, but for the extra piece of mind of it never coming apart, I will continue to use the red, you guys use what YOU want.

Why? The screw works fine for some. I have had 0 issues with mine, its just people tinkering and trying to come up with different ways to do the same thing.

if anyone is looking for Lunsford Ti turnbuckles, these are repackaged as Yokomo and are the length needed...

Best ae build ever. I can see why they did an aluminum screw kit. Most pieces ae keyed so the screw is just holding them together. Should be much stress on it. The only problem I had was the slipper. Either the spur is to small or the vts plastic is a little to big because those really didn't want to go together. Triad is going on it soon anyway
