Here is a build article for the 417v5 with pictures, including a tip on the shocks

http://www.thercracer.com/2013/06/ta...ld-thread.html

To be honest, the manual is fine, everyone has our our own tips. The big one is not to ream out the arms, and try to build the diff with different O-rings and a little green slime.

CA personally I only do the bottom plate and the suspension towers.

I race my V5 on carpet with the shocks provided, they work really well and dont leak, I used to run the std shock with 0 rebound, but these shocks are easier to make 0 rebound if you dont drill the cap.
