fancy wiring just means you'll miss a race trying to fix/replace something. been there, done that. stick with the KISS method.

Got mine built and got some practice laps in with it last night. Fun car.
I was missing 4 screws , a friend was missing the rear 3 hole hub nuts. AE is cranking these things out and the QC is very lacking.

I used loctite on the front axle screws and the ballstud that goes into the rear hubs. Some are using a longer ballstud and backing it with a nut. Use loctite sparingly, dont coat the threads...a little will do it.

Not a dumb question. I use it where screws are threaded into aluminum parts. Also the manual should indicate where thread locker should be used. I use AE Blue thread locker. Blue Loctite works well. Don't use Red loctite.
