So I went and practiced today and the only things I did was I rebuilt the fronts using the 37.5 and it ran awesome. It is a new layout and the first time in this new layout so maybe it was just the last track I wasn't set up for. It was a long banked corner I was lifting the front wheel on and there's none on this layout. Must say I do love the new REEDY Mach 3 though. oh and I used my square pack and not a shorty. Loved the handling.

I had the same issue and contacted AE. They are aware of the problem, currently working on a running change to the part to cut another mm or two of threads into the axles...
Keep running the washers for now? I'm using the stock axles instead of the clamps.

I'm new to this sport so be kind.
I built one of these for a first kit and taken it to an indoor clay track for a few practice sessions. I set it up the way it was recommended in the manual. Running a 17.5 stock setn with JConcepts gold tires. Two observations:
1: I'm fish tailing around a 90 degree turn after a long straight away. Am I entering the turn too fast or do I need to adjust the setup?
2: The front tires are building up clay much faster than the rears. Am I landing too hard on the front?

I have the same issue. I had quickly put the axles on the other day and had not noticed the nut was bottoming out. This is very frustrating as AE already had to replace two sets of axles for me because of bad threads. I contacted them and they will send me out a new set, but only after they tried to tell me the 6mm clamping hexes are only meant to narrow the rear, and not use on the front.

I'm not sure about problem 1. If its not a set up issue perhaps your on the throttle too hard or maybe you're letting off the throttle too much. Not sure about that one. Lots of variables....if you're using gold compound, what kind of inserts are you using?

Your second problem is normal. The rear tires are under power and throw the clay while the fronts just roll along and collect it as they go. When you jump and you blip the throttle you largely clean the rears off but the fronts don't "spin" quite like the rears.

Thanks for your reply. I'm using the inserts that came with the gold tires.
Now I understand why the fronts crud up. I'm pretty sure it is my throttle technique causing the tail spins. Perhaps I'll get better with more practice.

Has anyone tried the JConcepts Ti ones? Do they have more thread and no need for washer?

I use them on all my 5 series cars and no washers, they are great.

Yes washers needed if your running +3 JCONCEPTS wheels.
