I asked AE about the 5mm hexes and the truck...it is a tuning option. So they will work and if they hit your rim then you may want to re-check everything.

I'm running the 2 hole insert with camber link on inside hole in the up position. The shock is with one internal limiter and a stroke of 35mm. The picture is shown at full droop. Wheels are DE Speedline T4.2.

Do I feel it's excessive? Yes, on high bite. No, on med bite. Our track is med/high bite and it didn't have a push or traction roll with sauced SS Chainlinks on the rear. The hub is also forward too... Looks like I need to do some cleaning...

Must be some difference between the de wheels and team associated ones with the exact same settings the ball cups hit the wheel.

Default 3 Gear Set Ups

Wondering if Cole Tollard's set up sheet on ae website is 3 gear dependent? I run 4 gear.

I have jc wheels and tried it last night, doesn't rub anything. What is hitting? I doubt AE would not have their wheels work.

Started my build last night box stock....ill thrown x-rings in on my first shock re-build....same for all the ft alum. bits....build is super easy and smooth....got yellow wheels, aka inserts and m4 ions coming.

Electronics layout is looking like this:
Reedy blackbox esc
Reedy 8.0 motor
Reedy sq. Lipo
Reedy t-servo

You're going to love it. I went ahead and cut all of the cross bars out, and am happy with the response of the truck. The box setup isn't bad, but I'm far from happy yet....

The hand written copy of this sheet I have seen has the 3 gear box filled in.
