thanks again! its just sooo hot and dusty in LA! lol
It's almost impossible for me to say, but I would probably stick with the Subs on the 1/8th stuff and DD's on the 1/10th vehicles.

We actually just got some green compound in Friday. I don't really know, but think we might still be a few weeks out on Golds.

If you're impatient, the C4.2 Finnisher body fits the B5m really well with very little extra trimming needed.

I don't have an ETA, but my guesstimation would be mid summer...

I just put this kit on my SC10.2 Everything fit pretty well. No real problems with the install. I will try it out tomorrow at the track and report back on how well it does.

I do have to say I had to replace the (4) set screws in the aluminum ends. My metric hex wrench would not fit, nor would my standard. First time I tried ti tighten the screw, it stripped. Had to slot it to get it out. Are they some special size?

It's not metric; it's standard .050" I just checked a new kit and my .050 wrench fit nice and tight. Maybe some bad set-screws or your .050 tip is slightly undersized or rounded.

I was using my new Dynamite set and my drawer full of the little "L" wrenches. I tried the new Dubro set too. Just seemed like it was small for the metric, large for the 050?

I have enough wheel collars and set screws it was not a problem. Could have been a bad lot of the set screws.

parts is parts.

Is there a way to order parts for the sway bar kit? Brother lost one side of his rear sway bar linkage. It looks like the set screw came loose and the ball link came off the sway bar and then the link went flying. So, can we order the parts from JConcepts?

Unfortunately we don't, but I will look into it.
