I'll measure the wheel inside diameter and offset tonight and report back.

Are you guys using any other wheels besides the AE ones? The AE ones are at the bottom of the sea, apparently.

Thanks!

I'm running the stock AE wheels (PN 7852) and there is plenty of clearance for the hubs and ball cups. I don't have a set of 5mm hexes to try but I'm not seeing how they would cause a problem on my truck.

Are you sure your rear camber is set to something reasonable? I can kinda see where excessive negative camber "might" cause an issue with the narrow hexes.

Anyone using the +4mm arm mount yet with the 7mm hex? Curious to see opinions, will be trying it on weekend. Also what is reason for new 7mm hexes for b5m/t5m if stock hex for b5m is 7mm anyway?

Our outdoor season kicks off this Sunday. The track is medium to low grip, quite level though. It is watered between each round, so on the tone it starts slick goes to best grip after a few laps, then by the end it is dry. If you are in the groove it is medium grip, but if you fall out of the groove it is low to loose grip. Very dynamic changes minute to minute, hour to hour. The best grip is always early rounds of quals and by mains is the loosest conditions.

So are there any good setups available for Med to Low grip outdoor tracks? The 4 on the Associated site don't match, although the Thielke may be where I start but need to dial in traction. Any ideas?

The reason for the new 7mm hex is because of the new slightly larger diameter HD axles.

Their shipping cost is absurd though. IIRC it was $12 to ship 1 set.

Anyone else snapping ball studs? So, far, I've snapped two off. I'm using kit balls, cups, and turnbuckles.
