anyone have issues with the right rear camber bolt coming loose often? It connects to the 3 hole position aluminum mount. It has the ball cup on the rear that the camber link attached to by the tire.

Assuming you mean the insert that goes into the rear hub. Are you installing a nut on the front side of it also? Shouldn't be coming loose with a good nylock nut

Yes, the blue aluminum piece is threaded and the ball stud screws into it. The ball stud threads are pretty much flush with the back side of the hub. Maybe 2 threads a most come through the aluminum piece so there is no room to put any nut on the threads. I will try some blue / red locktite to see if that helps.

Im gonna stop you right there, It sounds like you have a too short of ball stud in your hubs. Not that loctite is not a good idea but you need to get a longer ball stud back there, maybe the correct ball stud is elsewhere on the car?

Thread locker is a good idea, but please don't use red. Blue is enough lol..

If it's the B5m CE the supplement manual tells you to take the 6mm ball studs that go in the steering rack, and install them in the rear hubs. It then tells you to take the 8mm ball studs, that would have otherwise gone in the rear hubs, and install them in the steering rack. Why they didn't just include 10mm ball studs and a nylok nut like in the FL car, I'll never understand.

Oh ok good to know. I don't have a manual for my b5m and I have the aluminum hubs. I was going off how the B6 instructions are as I'm building one...slowly....

has anyone experienced bending of the front left turnbuckle often? I just replaced the turnbuckle for the 3rd time and it has a bend in it again after the first 5 minute race. Its just the stock turnbuckle. (ASC6263 2.06") I'm looking to replace these with something stronger. Looking for suggestions? Lungsford the best option or the Titanium Factory Team?

I am going to replace all the turnbuckles but what I dont want to do is replace them and have it get bent shortly after. Is there something on the buggy I should look to see if it is causing it to bend? If so where would should I look / Check?
