I've met several drivers who don't prefer them on really bumpy tracks though.
Very true!
I haven't ran on terribly bumpy tracks myself, but I prefer the truck springs where I run, a LOT cheaper than the Kyosho springs for sure!

Saddles and squares are already plenty heavy enough. Doesn't mean you can't to try it.

All of the team setups for mod are based around the static weight of a square pack. Saddles are very close. Shorties are anywhere from 45-60 grams lighter.

Plus at any roar event squares are not legal. That's a big reason the team just runs the shorty with weight added so they aren't swapping diff lipo styles all the time.

Yeah it's just weird marking on the sheet, its either 1, 2, or 3... No in-betweens that I know of!

Try lowering it first on the inside!
But to answer your question, the 3 hole insert all the way inside is the shortest link

Staneck its me...

And what the guy above stated; lowering the inner stud by 0.5mm is often better than purely shorter link.

Hey guys,
Associated tech support tells me that the kit shock pistons won't work with the new V2 screw shafts (part # 91620, 91624). They tell me that to get 2x1.7mm piston I need to buy blanks and then drill them. Is this right? I wanted to run 2x1.6 front, 2x1.7 rear. Also should mention I'm getting the Kashima coated bodies, aluminum caps, xrings. Looking to keep the kit shocks as spares.

Correct...standard pistons will not work with the screw shafts. You need V2 pistons. They come in various sizes, but not the 2x1.7's. You can get 2x1.6's and then drill them out yourself with a 1.7mm bit.

Schelle offers 2X1.7 pistons for the AE V2 shock shafts.

Anybody know if there are any plans on AE making gold shock shafts for the T5M?
I just rebuilt my buggy shocks and truck shocks, the buggy shocks are WAY smoother than my truck shocks. Buggy has gold shafts and both have low friction X-Rings...
Crap, nevermind, I found them on Amain! Lol!
