What did you use on the outdrives? I just took the blades off and scuffed them on some 100 or so sandpaper. They are durable as is, so i don't imagine taking .2mm off will affect them.

Is it the blades that are tight or the ball on the dog bone?

Let me know as I can get them to revise the diffs. If they are not interested, we'll make aluminum outdrives for them :P

It was the blades for me. I took them off the axles and sanded them a bit. There's no binding anywhere now.

Common practice to have to sand blades a little, even sometimes with stock parts where molding wasn't 100%. As with anything, sand on the least expensive part!

I wouldn't go looking for a $10 solution to a $1 problem.

AE sent out the missing shock parts pretty quick to Canada(via USPS). Their customer service seems pretty good to me! Thanks.

Anyone use Delrin blades? If so, are they more durable than AE's stock plastic?

Default body mounting

Seems like a dumb question but here it goes. . What holes on the body mounts give the best fit for a mazda speed 6? Let's make it the top clip hole so we can all be on the same page. I was thinking second from the bottom on the rear and second from the top on the front. Seem a tab bit low in the front tire wise but the top hole all most seems high. What's working for you?
