Just got done building my kit. Thank goodness for electric screwdrivers!!

The good: Instructions, fit up, packaging & quality of molded parts

The bad: I had one tie rod end that was not threaded at all. Who ever packed bag J was high. I have no screws for the servo mounting brackets, no 16mm set screws for battery thumb nuts, no screws for gear cover, no ball stud for servo horn. It was almost like I was missing a complete bag. I had a J1 & J2 bag. J1 bag had 16 antenna set screws and 14 body clips?? Is there supposed to be a J3 bag??

I did check and my wing is with the body.

First race with the truck tonight and I love it more and more each time I drive it. TQ'd in round 2 qual and led from the tone, until my right rear ball stud unthreaded from the knuckle going into a fast sweeper cause some idiot forgot to loctite them when he built it (me).

Default Can not adjust turnbuckles.....keep popping off!!!

Purchased JConcept Ti turnbuckle set for T5M and can not adjust camber or toe without turnbuckles popping off ball studs. Used black grease but still way tight. Turnbuckle length per manual was off so am having a hassle to adjust since they pop off......bummer.

Next time you build turnbuckles try this. Chuck turnbuckle in drill, put a dab of chapstick on turnbuckle, screw turnbuckle deeply in ball cup but do it slowly and when you feel it get tighter stop and reverse drill and unscrew it, flip turnbuckle in drill and repeat... As you screw the turnbuckle in it gets hot from the friction and almost melts and forms the threads in ball cup. The capstick melts and provides plenty of lube.
