From the way it handles I do not believe the rear is slapping, I think it's just cause a square battery, and a large ESC up front.

Get the new truck springs.

FWIW, I noticed on kick-up jumps it tends to jump a little nose down, but on a roller type jump it will jump nose high. (I also use square packs). I run the new truck white springs front and back with 37.5 front and 32.5 back.

Look up Plan B Racing on FB. They make a CF chassis that is very similar and slightly less expensive.

At $4.50 a set, I would get them all, you never know what you're gonna like the best, plus its all about tuning.

Are AE still replacing super tight turnbuckles? I mean not even squeezing them loosens them up. Its uber annoying.

I have only tried the brass D mounts, my second race is this up coming Saturday and if I cant get the nose up a little to make it jump a little flatter I might try it.

I am finishing up building the Associated 2wd Buggy and truck fleet and have a few questions. If you could help me out understand thing the following, it would greatly appreciated:

1.) The Kit setup has 2mm washer on the steering rack. By taking away the blue washer or changing out to a 1mm, what will that do to the steering feel?

2.) On the T5M, I see several people are using the +4 C Block and a different rear D Block with arrows pointed outward. Again, what would be the purpose for making this change. How does it affect the truck?

3.) What would the difference be on the buggy instead of using 25 + 5 in caster to using 30 + 0...

THANKS!!!

Google Hudy Setup Book It will explain all your questions and then some. It's a great book to print off and keep as a reference in your pit box.

Here's a great article on setting up your car that explains what changes to make to achieve a desired result. I keep this one with me.
