Picked up an SC5M for my son to replace his 6 year old SC10. Well there might be a part on it that is 6 years old but most has been replaced through the years.

Since we already have, 1 B5, 3 B5M's and 1 T5M, the build went pretty well. It was missing 2 Flat head screws for the bulkhead. The only semi-major issue was the one of the HD CVA Axles (71019) wasn't machined right and the outside bearing would not slide on all of the way. Instead of waiting on the build I dremeled it down until the bearing would fit. It seems to be centered properly, at least I hope so.

Yeah and also the 2 HD ballstuds (91049) had the threads machined wrong. As they bottomed out in the Aluminum Rear Ball Stud Mount (91520) they kept spinning. Luckily I had a couple spares 12mm ones in my tool box and they worked fine as replacements.

We run Slicks on Ozite carpet so I couldn't find a setup, although I set it up close to my T5M. Will probably need to play with roll center and camber to get it right. I love the 5 series vehicles, only an SC10 and B4.1 left.

C Mount insert question. When using the inserts with L & R on them, does the R go on the right when the mount is on the chassis or when holding the mount and looking at the R? The mount numbers face the front of the car when mount is installed. If I install R on the right while holding the mount and looking at it and then install on the chassis it's on the left rear side??

Install them on the side of the chassis that it's marked.

For clarification, you are saying the R goes on the side that the right rear tire is on?

I used a 200mm sensor wire to go under the battery.

My kit is built. Hands down, the nicest build ever. No missing parts, no defects and nicely laid out. The new ball cups are the cats a$$.

A special thanks to Amain to fix USPS screw up. On Nov 23rd an order was placed with Amain and on Dec 5th I received a box that had a chevy 5.3 water pump. Yes, a freaking water pump. Amain reshipped my order with one day delivery from CA to IN and ate the $63 shipping charge. Now that’s customer service!!

Also thanks to AErayls for clarifying the C mount inserts

Could someone tell me what your running weight is? The site does not have any information.

Just a overall weight without body would be fantastic.

Build is complete. I was torn between 3 gear and 4, decided on 4. Going to be testing on Sunday at club race.

If you are racing indoors on anything more than medium grip, try the 3 gear. I really like how it feels. It makes the truck more neutral under braking and acceleration.

I'm running on large indoor med/high bite. I planned on building 3 gear but I got to drive one that was built per kit. It felt so balanced that I had to try the kit build first. I have all the stuff for 3 gear and will give it a try in the near future for comparison.

Ran my new SC5M for the first time last night. Super impressed so far!

A couple things I'm confused on:

1. I am running the Fox/Kashima shocks. What is the proper aluminum cap for these?

2. I have machined, tapered pistons along with the Ti-Nitride coated shafts. When I mount the piston to the shaft the piston can move around even with the screw all the way down. Assuming this is simple as finding a tiny shim?

3. My shock bodies, front to rear, are slightly different colored. It's almost as if the Kashima coating on the fronts is thinner than the rear; causing them to be a slightly lighter tint. Is this common?

Thanks

They come with a small washer/shim to go on with piston. Should of been in package.

Pretty normal.
