What electronics are you planning on running? I am thinking of getting one, if I can, and want to know what you/others were planning on running.

Default Bag B Assembly Complete

I have completed the Bag B Parts Assembly. Everything continues to go together well. No missing small parts. Even though I got a little nervous when I only had 2 of those potentially flying e-Clips in the bag. Not to worry, I always have a spare bag of them just in case.

The thing I really like so far is the Hex driver ball studs. The AE gang really scored with these. Especially once you get all the bumpers added. Maintenance and Setup changes are going to be a breeze.

I went ahead and added the Factory Team Hinge Pin Brace and Ti-Turnbuckles.

#9665
#1283

You may also want to have plenty of Ball Stud Washers so you can adjust the geometry, bumpsteer, ect as you build. Although some steps in the Manual call for a certain number of spacers (ball studs), this kit as well as the FT T4 I recently built, didnt contain some of them in the kit.

Pics of the completed front assembly, and Nerf Bars added to the chassis. This carries you thru Step 8 of the build.

Up next Bag C. The Gear Diff and Transmission assembly.

To Be Continued........

The Bushings are in the Steering Rack.

The Transmission, Front Wheels, Rear Axle Carriers have Bearings in the Kit.

JDCrow....are the arms on your SC10 the same as the T4 arms? Looking at the pic of the front end, they look like they might be the same?

Default Not much left to do

Well after this post, there is not much left to do.

Left to do:
-Add Rear Hubs and Driveshafts
-Build Shocks
-Install and Fine Tune Electronics
-Install the Battery retention strap
-Assemble Tires/Wheels
-Final Chassis Setup
-Paint the body

The assembly has been really smooth. No missing or damage fastners. Everything needed to complete a step is individually packaged.

Guys who have an SC8, the SC10 mudflaps are exactly the same part.

For guys about to build, if you have fumbly fingers you may want to make sure you have extra hardware (plain washers, screws, etc), because the parts included are the amount necessary to complete the task.

When you get to the transmission assembly in Step 7, leave the rear bumper lower brace loose. You can snug it once your are ready to finish Step 9.

Off to get something to eat.

Be sure to always use a nut the size of the height of the # of washers. This will prevent your ball-studs from flexing and breaking. This extra step ensures great life. Keep the building process up
