Attached, nothing out of the ordinary. I tested 2 stage rcshox pistons on sunday and liked them, I'll have time this week to do back to back testing though since I changed up the front end geometry as well.

Well... you made me look, and good on you man. I felt the "on load" slide of my bones in and out of the outdrives and they were amazingly sticky compared to how they looked. Turns out the bone pins have some meat hooks hiding on them where I couldn't see, and that right there will do exactly what I'm complaining about--make the rear suspension lock up under power or brake. Until I get some new bones and outdrives, and probably install some new cblock/spindle and rear hubs (I run the plastic ones), I really can't fault the platform. Definitely makes me feel better knowing there's a reason the thing was just all over the map.

The car was a bit slopped out, but the killer is the binding in the rear outdrive/bones. It honestly looks fine at a glance, but there's no doubt after feeling them. I swapped the bones left to right and it even got dramatically smoother with just that. Greif.

I'm not really seeing a useful thread for the reedy black box. Is it a must have to get the program box?

Glad you found that, its ashame AE's QC is kinda sad on these kits, its almost a 50% chance its not right out of the box, I'll give the K car a big up on it in the quality of parts dept.

yeah, that is the main selling point of the pucks. smoother consistent feel and just replace the puck for upkeep. great for stock, no idea how they hold up on mod

Must have? That is a loaded with opinions question. For me the program box IS a "must" have.

they have the shiny drive system for mod with steel outdrives instead of aluminum that will hold up a lot better.

This wasn't a quality control issue, it was a worn out from lots of outdoor racing and I didn't see it issue. Having said that, the ball cups were a pain, the hubs and cblocks slop out pretty easily, and there is quite a bit of play in the rear arm mounts when new, but hey, easily fixed on those.

Yea the blackbox thread is useless... regarding the program box, considering the combo with the program box is only slightly more money, I'd say its no a brainer. Now if you have already purchased the esc and not the programmer, well for me it IS a must have, makes its very easy to work on at the track.

The esc itself has been great so far in my B44.3, very smooth and good power and strong brakes. my only issue is why dont they include the fan? Seriously i have to pay an extra $15 for the fan? which by the way has no protection and I've already broke a blade and have no idea how. if anyone knows of a 30mm fan protector let me know, I think PSM makes one but I dont believe its 30mm?
