I just built it as per the kit and adjusted slightly for our track here in CO. I went with 20k tube lube, sliver side springs and gold center. Car seems dialed for our track, now if I can only drive without hittin' crap .

I have another kit coming for 13.5 blinky...

Other than the loose eyelets, I'm pretty pleased with the new 5.2 over my old CRC Xi....

Ran it Saturday night and all I can say is AWESOME. Ran in the stock class (17.5) and it was good to go from start to finish. Compared to the 5.1 with lipo it seemed to have more steering and just flat out drove better.

Couple guys ran them in MOD and were completely blown away on how they handled.

Completely love this thing..

We did race at our new location, CRC carpet on a perfectly smooth basketball court may have helped too. If for any reason you guys are in the NW this winter, this track is a must...... www.seattlercracers.com

Nice!

What kind of rollout/gearin were you running and timing if any on the motor? Just looking for a reference.

After some research on here, hung around a 104mm roll out, 43/41 cut and a 76/59 gear

It is nice and comes from a great leader and comp committee along with the relationship built up with the city. Usually do a 2 day but will end up with a long 1 day probably in March. Will be at the NW big daddy, Timezone Gran Prix, Nov 9-11 though. Hebert booked his flight... your boy Frank was there last year..

Nov. is just too tight for me with the Indoor Champs. March would be way better for me. See what you can do about that.....

Went with CRC in blk/yel. Pretty much the standard color for stock at our track. Mod guys were mag/mag or pink.

Still got room in there, 60 is probably the biggest I'd go. Ran about 10 minutes in practice, (2) Qs and a main and dropped only about .5 mm on diameter. Cut down some tires from last season that were slightly chunked and will be able to run them. That track is so nice, wish it was at a permanent place.....

104'x48' of pure bliss....

Anyone got the weight difference between the stock kit screws and the aluminum ones?

On page 5, step 4 the instructions say to apply Thread Lock to the set screw that threads into the Side spring retainer, does the thread lock go on the set screw before threading the screw into the chassis brace, or after? I think of blue thread lock as a product designed to temporarily bond a metal screw into a metal nut or other thread. Is the intent to secure the set screw in the chassis brace?

Put it on AFTER you screw the set screw into the brace. The idea is; the retainer will spin super easy WITHOUT the threadlock, I honestly didn't even notice the picture to add it, I just did since it moved so easy. Also don't put a lot on, a little is all you need to "gum up" the threads a bit.
