My summer track is a hard packed clay/dirt mix. During the day when it's dry we run holeshot M4s then when the sun goes down the traction comes up we run electron M4s.

So I'm trying to run Cavs setup and it says he's using the 6mm wheel hex up front. I got the clamping axles however when I try to put the wheel on the threads don't go far enough to snug the wheel tight.

Has anyone run into this issue and if so how did you get around it?

I have the same issue with the front 6mm hexes. I just run a washer under the wheel nut.

Well I found earlier in this tread it was discussed and AE customer support said it will be a running change and to contact them for replacement.

If you don't want to wait you can just shim the back side of the axle.

Is there any way to build this kit and use stick packs? I'm not interested in purchasing 3 or more shorty's just for this one truck.

I mainly run dirt oval and we use stick packs for this. Also, stick packs in my SCT410.3.

Three shortys? Many people use one or two packs all day long.

You can make a stick pack fit by cutting the brace between the battery hold down screw posts.

Actually Kashima coating is more durable AND smoother. The hard anodizing process fills more holes in the surface of the body. Think of it like grits of sandpaper. 400 grit is much smoother than 80 grit. That's how Kashima works. It's a harder, smoother surface for moving parts to glide on.

Just buy 1 shorty (or a brick pack)...I have not seen or read about someone using a full stick pack. You will be fine with 1 pack.

Pretty sure he was talking about shock shafts. There are no Kashima coated shafts..only bodies. The shafts are either chrome or ti-nitride coated. Chrome is smoother but the ti nitride will last longer.

Annnnd that was 7 months ago...

I took it as he was comparing the standard ano bodies to the Kashima coated ones. And excuuuuuse me for just reading through the thread now.

Like others have said, cut in between the battery post, I put a carbon fiber plate across the antenna mounts. Notched out to hold the front of the battery.

I was refering to the Ti nitride coating on the shaft (gold color) vs. the chrome.
