Default My build pics

Ok, I'm putting these out there now that I have 10 posts. I started documenting a lot of the steps, but that got old and I wanted to finish it more than take pictures all night. Besides, building shocks and a diff aren't that interesting. I was trying to get pics that might answer some questions I saw posted here.

I need to shorten up the servo wire. Hopefully its neat enough for the critics out there.


If you keep drilling into these pictures, you can see them in their 6000x4000 glory.

Maybe you got some junk shafts. I measured my 2 b4.2's and 2 sc10.2's . are all 2.93mm and both my b5m kits so 8 shafts are 2.93mm.

Kody Numendahl posted in rc10b5 nation on Facebook that the shafts are the same as the V1 big bores. The B5 just comes with non coated version. He said any difference in measurements is just production variation. the new seal pack spacers and better machining on the shock bodies is the biggest improvement.

I don't think there are any more QC issues than normal. The issue is that there are so many kits being bought/built right now that it seems like more issues than normal.

This same perceived spike happened when the 4.2 was released

On my B5 running a ShurrSpeed I am running a 69/33 and it's stupid fast with enough bottom end, timing turned to 30 stupid fast and barely breaks a sweat.

I dont know what hobby shop will let you do that. Just buy it and if anything is wrong contact CS from what I have read Associated is on top of it.

And were these Harbor Freight calipers? Because that alone would add +/- 0.1mm tolerance just due to poor quality measuring instruments. lol

Just as a question. Why is everyone putting the ESC on the same wide as the motor wires... which would typically be the "heavy" side.

Not good enough! Shorten them immediately! j/k

Great pictures though! Mind if I ask what camera?

Funny you say that because yes they are very innacurate. To see for you self zero it move it and then bring it back to zero a few times. Magically starts adding .01 after a while lol. .008" is hard to accecpt as a "tolerence".

Either way I wouldnt stress worrying about getting a kit with bad parts in it. Like someone else said there are so many kits being sold and assembled within the past few days. Only a few of us have reported issues, which AE has been very quick to rectify.

+1 its not a perfect world--it's how a person (or company) acts to rectify the situation that matters.

Before you redo the ESC wiring ?

Check into some of Reedy's thin 14g motor wire for that extra clean look...

What I'm using....
