Unhappy

Got my kit in today. Started putting it together and hit a couple of snags. The nut for the long diff thrust bolt has no threads in it. Then when I was working on the front spindles I found I got 5 of the #3 steering block inserts and only 3 of the #2-4 inserts. I guess I'll be calling AE in the morning.

Yeah I ran into several issues with my build as well. I contact AE support and they're sending me the parts I need. Luckily I ordered two kits with extra parts so I was able to race this past weekend.

im going to try a little drag brake. I use the throttle mostly on my t5m and b5m but the sc5m seems a lot slower at reacting.

if I let off the throttle sooner I don't make the landing .

Thoughts on those who have tested Square Pack vs Shorty Pack Recently?

I am using the Plan B carbon chassis with a inline shorty and it made a huge difference in how the truck handles its alot more nimble and jumps way better.

Does anyone have or know where to find a spring chart that lists all the latest AE springs, part numbers, colors, and rates?

Is the only place to get those Plan B chassis on Facebook? I was looking for a site but couldn't find one...

If you are looking for a carbon fiber chassis, check out Team GFRP on face book.

The parts listing breakdown in the back of the SC5M instruction manual, I believe is the most current.

I ran my SC5m for the first time tonight, seems to go well, just need new tyres tho as I have the wrong ones for low to medium grip dirt/clay.

Speaking of what would be some setup tips for low to medium grip dirt/clay to help reduce sharp low speed turn in and possible loose rear end that will slide out under power. Think I may need to loosen the diff a little. BUt mostly want to know a couple tricks for next week.
