Honestly, I pick cars that donít have automatic 1-year updates. IIRC, the Xray and Yokomo have gotten updates every year on the dot. So the shelf life is shorter.

The other reason I bought the D418 was it was cheap and different. The Schumacher is very different. The Xray and Yokomo are probably the most similar to existing platforms.

Ok so I'm looking for advice on what one to get the SR OR AC. At my local club we run a carpet gym in the winter with our offroad cars. All flat and quite small, so to slow down the cars to avoid breaking the cars we are going to a spec 25.5. So I'm going to keep my 22 4.0 for outside only and get one for inside only but don't know if the SR will be what I need or if it is better to go with the AC since it is for built for just that type of racing.

either will do fine honestly BUT the AC comes with the sway bars and gear diff that you would want for carpet, so Iíd say the AC is your better pick for an indoor carpet car. The only difference is the SR doesnít have sway bars, and doesnít have the gear diff but does have the eliminator. The Sr also comes with the lightweight composite drivetrain and ball diff which would be toast on carpet real quick.

After asking the question I was thinking of going with the SR for outside since we are going to a spec 17.5 and when its time to retire the 04 I'll just get a AC. I just retired my 03 witch I've had since it came out, so it's done its time.
One other questions, with no gear cover how do you keep out the rocks?

I have an issue, I tried setting up the caster/camber/toe on my 22 5.0 AC and ran into a problem.

The 22 axle shoulder part of the wheel stud is 5mm. Me setup station hole is only 4 mm.

what has everyone else been doing to setup their 22 5.0

My Hudy setup stands fit over the axles fine, but I have to use the wider XB4 spacers to properly tighten up the wheelnuts. The standard washers are about 1mm too thin.

Can someone explain the difference between the standard 5.0 rear arms and the VHA rear arms?

The VHA rear setup needs more clearance for the hubs when in the -4 position, so they have a clearance area. You can use VHA rear arms on non VHA hubs but NOT the other way around if using the -4/+4 hub inserts

setup station in off road... don't know about you ...but if you are amazing in gluing tires and it's glued straight and true around AND your buggy doesn't have any slop whatsever( which is impossible in off road) Your accurate measurement would work. ON ROAD yes... setup station is a must.... OFF ROAD? not really. Just get yourself a cheap RPM gauge and a ride height gauge.... just saying.

I just remembered, I placed the spacers between the drive hex and the stand. That's why I didn't have an issue.

Most of the fast locals run ae, so that would be an easy choice for setup help. But I really like the design of the 5.0 minus not having a quick access diff.
The 5.0 Elite is very good on high bite clay. We also run slicks at my track and I set it up similar to Dakotah Phends INS setup and it was pretty good. My second club race with it I TQ'd and won!
