Hello guys.
I searched a complete night for a solution before asking here :-)

I am new to 2wd offroad , there is a problem with my servo arm.
I can do whatever i won't , it always touches my servo body.
I removed the shim , i used the servoarm spacer ...
Servo is a Futaba S9550.

grtz Kevin

What type of clearance do you have when the servo horn is oriented as it would sit in the car? In the B5 cars I don't think the horn will rotate that far 'down' as you have it in the picture. The ballstud will actually be above the long side of the servo in normal operation.

Kevin, you should be OK with that clearance.

That said, that ballcup looks mashed, I would recommend replacing that poor guy.

Take your ballstud and chuck each one in your dremel as you build them. Turn the dremel to high, and go until the ballstud gets hot. Then use a pair of pliers to slightly pinch the ball cup when it's hot. This won't mar the ballcup, and the ballstud will fit perfect.

My kit wasn't missing anything and went together really well. Notable items to me:
  • Shock pistons needed a little shimming to keep the pistons tight.
  • If you don't buy the optional set screws, there is a bit of slop in the lower control arms at the hinge pins. I originally shimmed this, but eventually got set screws for the front and aluminum hubs in the rear.
  • 2 Ballstups were missing the hex head - they were just rounded. Speaking of ballstuds the aluminum hubs should come with ballstuds, they require a different length ballstud than what comes with the kit. Just one more thing to order.
  • I wish AE had better quality control over their anodizing.
  • I am tickled pink to finally have an AE car and be able to use my metric tools!
  • Shocks felt Kyosho-smooth.
  • Smooth and fun build, the usual great AE directions.

I can't wait to get it to the track and give it a shot. This is my first mid motor car and I am excited to see how different it goes than my B4.2 I hung onto for so long. I usually run JC tires but am giving Electrons a try as well with the new car. I am a total sucker for buying bling stuff but refrained a bit on this one. This kit comes with so much good stuff and the car in stock form will likely perform just fine for my driving abilities so it is kind of weird building something and not having a wish list for parts I want.

Anyway, here is a couple photos:

I prefer the look of only heat shrink on the battery posts. Solder posts for motor and motor solder tabs get no heat shrink for me.

Im having some setup issues, whenever i get on the brakes my car wants to dart quickley to the left instead of stopping straight, I thought it was because my brakes were too high but even if I turn them down same result? is this an issue with suspension or droop?

Funny thing.......one of our fastest drivers at sdrc in san diego was using a flysky and dominating in any class he raced. recently saw him with an mt4 but was pretty cool seeing him beat the poop out of the fast guys with a flysky.

So has anyone tested the new shocks? Are they worth the price tag?
