ok, since people think I am completely crazy bad mouthing AE ball cups. I made a little video. all of the parts for both AE and TLR were brand new and no prep work was applied. Please dont confuse my cup review as AE bashing. I have been running AE cars for over 20 years and they are my preferred brand. But, I wont close my eyes, plug my ears, turn off my brain and convince myself that all is right in the B5 universe. I didnt have time today to demonstrate my polished, pinched and broken in cups. They are better than the new AE stud/cup, but not even 1/3 the freeness of the TLR setup. Also, I have run the tlr cups on my 22 for 9 months. Never broken a cup and they are still as tight as the first day.


Enjoy

I'm currently running 3x1.4 flats all the way around with 35/f 30/r and stock springs. May make some adjustments for a bit more forward bite. Put in a Schelle slipper yesterday and raced it last night in mod class. Definitely puts down the power better.

Truth is truth.....that isnt bashing at all.....

I experienced the exact same thing with my RM B5....whats weird is that my B5M wasnt nearly as bad.......

But neither were as free as the losi in your video.

I dunno. Those turnbuckles are 1 3/4 in and I only threaded them half way on. I didnt want to be accused of over threading them If yours are as smooth as my tlr cups in the video, I fel like I have been robbed lol. Those were also not the kit ae cups. They came from a NIP package I bought after I cracked a front cup in a crash. I have had 2 kits and 1 bag of caps all do the same thing. The studs are recent bactch and were shipped from AE directly after coming off backorder for a month. So none of the parts in the video were first run parts.

i just went through my diff and i noticed a couple of the holes in the diff gear had some flashing still on it after running it since feb, so i took a 2.3mm hole file to the all the holes and now my diff is smooth and not notchy at all, a problem that just randomly appeared a week ago.

did not have to touch the diff , very smooth still.

Just a tooth brush & some of that $uper lube from DuPont for the gears.

went to the near by tobacco shop & purchased a bunch of pipe cleaners.

PInk & Clean.

OYeah,
never seen any excess flash on the drive gears but if I saw any would just trim it off with a X knife .

You will need the studs also. The ball is a different diameter

Are you doing the HD cups the 22SCT and 22-4 use? They are absolutely fantastic and if you use one of those punches to make holes in them, they are also easy to install/remove just like the AE ones. I might switch later as well. For now, my Lunsford turnbuckles and OEM rod ends are free and smooth.
