I just received it a couple of days ago. I mounted it last night and I have yet to test it at the track. People on this forum who own them, swear by this PT.

I already had a AMB PT and I sent it to RCLaps to get cloned. I too agree that the AMB transponders are way over priced. I am probably going to put my original AMB transponder for sale on ebay. It is new, never been used or even mounted to any of my cars.

Ok I was at the track this morning doing some laps not driving hard, and went of like the smallest jump and my front left dogbone popped out of the cup. I never had this happen ever before. I know in some of the earlier kits had this problem but I never did. What can I do to have that never happen again? I checked everything and there is nothing broke nothing bent IDK.

Make sure you are using the proper shock positions on the towers and arms. If you don't, it can allow the axle to pop out.
Another thing to check is the diff. Pull the diff out and make sure the end plates where the bear rides is not broken. I had this happen once and the axle kept popping out.

It is a brand new gear box. Shock locations are inner on the arm and lower middle on the tower.

And if all else fails, you just need to change to 17mm hubs.
