Everywhere says it'll be in stock on Dec 31st if you can hold off a little while longer. I know I am in search of one too.

Hey Guys, random question...

...does anyone know if the front body mount for the SC5M will fit the old SC10.2 front tower?

Thanks!

Found one! Google search came up with nothing, so I switched over to Bing and found a small hobby shop in Oregon with an online store. The online store said they had 1 in stock so I called them before ordering. Sure enough, that had one and it's on the way to me

On an unrelated topic, how much back and forth movement do you have with the rear arm between the inner hinge pin braces? I converted my T5M to the SC5M but the parts should be the same, yet I had a good 2 - 2.5 mm of back and forth movement. I found a 2mm plastic washer and installed it between the arm and the aluminum D block. I removed the shocks to make sure the arms still moved up and down freely which they did. I know some space should exist there, but more than 2mm seems excessive.

Yes they will. If I remember right, they are shorter than the sc10.2 though.

Page #8 of the T5 and the SC5 manual show a spacer in front of the arms

Thank You, thank you, thank you! I guess I forgot about it since I built the T5M so long ago

0mm~3mm offset should work just fine

Hey gang, does AE make a non-coated shock body for their 12mm shocks? Hard-coated, Kashima or otherwise?

Check out Avid bearings. A buck a bearing or buy their kit specifically for the SC5M.
