+1. Likewise if you manage to mess up or wear down the block you can buy it without all the inserts

Maifield had his newest setup sheet up on ae's website. Im suprised that this is a very similar setup to what I have been running and its very dialed.

Default Inserts

How would the blocks wear out. No problem offering the inserts by themselves, that makes since but I have three sets of the blocks that are useless.
You could list on your website that you need additional parts to make it work.
Not to mention the inserts are not $1, There $8 so you have to buy 4 different parts that total $44.

But I have figured a way to get the adjustment I want since I have an extra shock tower

Check your hub bearings. Also check your transmission bearings - someone had one blow out and I think he said he finished his race but the car was loud.

They did the same thing with the alum Shock mounts. You need to buy the alum mounts and the plastic ball to make it work. BTW, I dont think Kyosho or TLR sell the inserts with the suspension holders. But yeah, there should be a note saying you will need the inserts, like they did with the front clamping hexes and axle. TLR and Kyosho like to bundle parts I dont want or need, so I dont really have an issue buying just what I want. Heck, If I could buy the left and right arms separately, like the xray, I would. lol. I did like that about the Kyosho, arms fir both sides front and back... Anyway, can the inserts be swapped out without removing the alum block? I was going to change my buggy from 3-2 to 2.5-2, but I have my chassis tape on and I dont want to cut up the chassis tape to get the screws out, lol.

I found the alum c and d block on eBay and bought the inserts at northwest hobbies in oregon. Got lucky and I did buy the last ones. They are sweet. Also the rear ball stud mount In alum and top shaft are on AE site. Ordered them yesterday.

They will wear out because they are soft plastic. They should be $4.00-$5.00, if you are paying $8.00 you are getting ripped off. Agreed, the blocks should come with them and also sell them separately. My LHS had them in stock the other day, I will check with them tonight when I am there. If you really need them PM me and ill grab a set and send them to you.

Default there's no substitute for paying attention...

Just to use A-Main Hobbies as an example;

Most, if not all their products, are listed with multiple images. Most, if not all those images include the product in it's manufacturers packaging.

You can discern very easily what's included - look at the package for crying out loud!

One can argue, or be critical of the fact that related parts should be sold together. However, I've witnessed the same individuals complain that they have to buy the entire "insert example here," to get the one part they need. Some cases it works in your favor and other cases not.

We've all elected to play the retail/hobby game, but almost two pages of complaining about it is a little excessive and unproductive no?

I was referring to these, not the new V2 style ones. It looks like the v2 ones come with inserts, you are correct.

+1 I can see it both ways and people will complain in either direction. I know that I dislike being forced into rear hub when I broke a spindle on my tlr 22 2.0. I had a pile of rear hubs at one point. But at the same time, it does seem like the alum shock stays should come with the $2 balls. I mean, how often will anyone replace the mounts. Probably the same with inserts and the hangers. AE probably just didint want to double package the inserts.

Basically you use the 1mm blue AE ballstud washer between the bearings in the akerman rack. you have to ream out the hole between the two bearings enough to allow the washer to fit. it was a 5 min mod.
For anyone who is interested in the alloy rack; I just received mine from Amain today and it looks like there are two 1mm crush washers included with my rack........I looked at some pics of packaged racks online and saw no such washers, so perhaps AE has included them to correct the issues. I haven't installed the rack yet so I can't verify for sure, but the washers are clearly unique to the aluminum rack.
