you may need to swap the rear hubs around for clearance.
Which AE ballstuds? The 8mm or 10mm? The "short neck" or the "long neck"?

Balance was greatly improved, I can aim for an apex while downsiding with more confidence. Before the car would be left side heavy and could not consistently sling the car into a corner after a jump. That photo was prior to the +8mm chassis..

I was expecting to come here and read about people's opinions of the +8 chassis after the weekend... Nothing? Good? Bad? Indifferent?

Mine is collecting dust at the moment, need to get the new body painted first before I make the switch. I have a spare unbuilt kit which I plan to build with new chassis and all. So hopefully next week I can report back.

I don't have the TD +8 plastic, but I have the +8 carbon chassis. I like it a lot. Adds some much needed stability at my track and makes the car more forgiving.

Didn't get to try as much as I would have liked because of that, but it's not too far off. The one thing that is apparent is that the wheels don't seem to "bounce" like they did with 4x1.2 in the rear, especially on straightaways that aren't really smooth.

Switching from AE to Rango. Need a list of spares besides the obvious. Got 3 sets of F/R arms, 2 sets of F/R towers, 3 sets of wheels, and the 210 in my cart. Need to know what spring packs and tuning items as well. Thanks guys!

Are the springs colored as far as the entire spring or is there an indicator on the spring that is a different color?

I am part color blind so looking at some online to buy I can really tell a difference LOL.

Also, what spring weights would someone recommend picking up for a MM setup on carpet outside of the stock springs?

Lastly, for the mid motor setup, what rear weight do people recommend? I have seen weights from 20, 24, to 50 grams! Thinking of going with the 50 gram one since I am using shorties.

What's the rest of your shock setup?
