Point taken, you are a tough crowd! Anyway, measured up the chassis and there is about 1,0mm wall thickness in the sensor cable recess so not much to act on there….even using a 14awg cable would have to raise the battery quite a lot...

Update

Got my package from AE. They sent me a coupl shock collars and they screwed on just fine so it was the shock collar that came in the kit with the messed up threading.

great news.

Love the avatar, one of my favorite movies and the commentary at the menu screens is hilarious.

"Should" being the keyword there. The manual should indicate where to use loctite but I don't recall my B5M manual mentioning locktite at all. I always do the same thing too...locktite on screws that go into any metal components.

Just got mine built yesterday. Dang this car is nice! (coming from a B4.2) As others have said, the fit is perfect and the plastics seem more solid now. Hearing about other guys having missing parts, bad machining, etc.. I was a little worried going into the build, but turns out I was one of the fortunate ones to have a complete kit that didn't require me having to contact AE.

Can't wait to get this thing out on the track!

So to save wading through ~1700 posts of bickering, speculation and eventually a few photos to finally get to the rare tip, does someone want to kindly fill me in on some build tips and things to look out for? I'm seeing a few posts about shock shaft diameter, a few missing screws and front bearing being crushed? Expecting mine to arrive in the next couple days.

Would be great if the op could be updated with essential information (which is what I thought the whole point of it was)

ok, here it is. The ball cups are painful for many. Chapstick/grease and open up the bore for the turnbuckles. I think its a 7/64, but you will wanna verify. Some people are shimming the rear arms because they are sloppy. Most people are not sloppy. Get the clamping front hexes or use locktite on the front axles to keep them from falling off. the bearings suck, replace now or when they are trash.

cheers for the update. Was planning on using factory team b4 turnbuckles, last I heard they are compatible, right? Grease on the turnbuckles when building is always a nice thing to do.

get the clamping front hexes, or get some clamping front hexes? I've got some avid clamping 12mm hexes floating about for an sc10, will they do the trick?

Still need to get around to ordering an avid bearing kit, was hoping to get a few meets out of the stock ones first.

I would get "the" clamping front hexes. Will "some" clamping hexes work? Maybe. Will they be the wrong offset? Most likely.

I dont think the B4/sc10 front axles will work. Can you get the avid hexes to work on the new B5 front hex axles.....Maybe. The B4 rears "fit".

That's why I'm asking. I assume this is the part you are referring to?
http://www.teamassociated.com/parts/details/91409/

they are quite slim, but in a pinch I could just grind the avid ones down to fit

SC10 rears are considerably wider than the front B5 clamping hexes, just use the stock setup and loctite the screw in. A little goes a long way.

I would not even mess with grinding those. The stock front hexes are fine, just use blue loctite and let it set. And maybe reapply and let it set again.

Once will suffice
