I am running Avid ceramic balls with a ceramic captured thrust on carpet without any issues or barking.

The C alumn mount. Do you use a locknut to keep them down like the stock one?

I never had issues with the ceramics in 17.5 buggy. Most of the issues I have experienced are in mod SC. heavier vehicles with strong motors. All ceramics can work fine, but it can be easier for new people to set the diffs with carbides.

First race was tonight!

Stock buggy - qualified 8/10 - Finished the main in 8th as well.

Could have qualified as high as fourth if I only shaved 10 seconds off my run but multiple multiple crashes prevented that. But at least its attainable!!

The guy running the show knew I was a newbie and had me run the novice main right after the stock main. I won! nothing to be super pompous about seeing as it was a much lower class, but it was fun. Now to just work on smooth mistake free laps and actually tuning the car and seeing how it affects my times.

Everyone was super nice and helpful, what a great community.

Depends on which ball stud location you plan to use... you should be fine with an 8mm in all holes except 1 according to AE. In that one hole you have to use a 6mm otherwise it can damage the bearing. I'm not sure what hole it is as far as front to back but I know its the ones furthest towards the inside of the car.

Finally received my kit and started working on it last night. I'm waiting for a few parts I ordered for it, FT Aluminum front pin brace, FT Aluminum rear ball stud mount, Lundsford Titanium turnbuckles.

For now I will be running the HW Justock I picked up along with a Trinity D4 17.5 Maxzilla.

Hoping to get the car all done, get some practice in and hit my first race with the new car on Sat the 13th.

It's all location on the aluminum hubs. If you run the -2mm position (C tower) on the hub, then you will need the 4mm ballstud.

Im not sure that would work if he is using 3mm of spacers. He would only have 1mm of threads and it would snap on the first hard tumble. I understand what your saying but 6mm is a safer bet with 3mm of spacers.

I just tried the hub insert upside down with the alunimum rear u brace +2 with another 2mm of spacers and its pretty dialed!
