Cool, my son and I are going to race the rookie 2wd in that series. Get out of Central Cali and hang out together. No B5m yet but should be a good time I hope.

What's the best way to loosen up some tight arms/hinges without reaming the arms? Noticed I have 1 or 2 that aren't entirely freely moving. Those rear hinges were suuuuuuuper tight to install anyway.

The "best"? Don't know the best way, but a way is to used rolled sand paper to open them up a bit.

My plan is to go with the 3mm trailing binsert, but the #of shims on rack for std. Ackermann is 1mm. I dont see any extra shims I just seen the 2 that came in the bag which I'm assuming are 2mm because that is the standard setup.
Edit: I found some old 1mm shims laying around

I changed to the 2mm trailing and kept everything else the same, loved it, then went to 1mm on Akerman and like that. Next will move blocks.

on tight hinge pin spots take a old pin and use a dremel on low speed for just a coupe passes.. a drop of polishing paste is all you need and then clean with a pipe cleaner... makes for silky smooth operation with no slop as your not opening it up but polishing the plastic to a perfect fit

Team mates ?

Yours are the same as mind.

All help each other and work together.

Why I'll always drive a Ae ...

Tip for you Bill

Only 2 of our Ae drivers received their mid , so maybe just the team drivers are short on kits ?
You & I have plenty....
Ok Cherry we're cool. I just know for a fact the AE only got about a third of the kits they expected. I was offered $500 yesterday to rent my car for Cactus, I passed.

Mine came in at 1582 as well outfitted just about the same as yours. Did you not have any issues with the servo horn ballstud hitting the servo? I am using the same servo and had some difficulty due to the length of the neck on the ballstud, but made it work. I'll get some photos up tomorrow.

If your saying you still have plenty of kits available I suggest you post in the SoCal for sale forum they'll be gone in a minute.
