Could you post a link to it on their site? I'm having trouble finding it. I even tried 3m's site, but they sell way to many things like it that have to be professionally installed (can't be bought by the average person, only certified installers).

I had some aluminum .1 hubs lying around so I put them on my .2. I honestly can't tell much of a difference between the two, but the aluminum ones definitely look nicer.

Oh okay. Yeah I was eyeing the Alum hubs on A main yesterday. UN4RACING made it sound as though the ones that came with the kit had some sort of defect though, that's what I was asking about.

The the caster block fits to tight in the steering block. So I shaved it down with a file to get clearance. The steering blocks are not square. I wish I had taken pics now to show how I fixed it. I had to do the same thing on my last .2 to keep it from binding.

These..

[QUOTE=JoeGolf;11611223]By far one of the smoothest and quickest builds I've done in 20+yrs. Strange to think AE is the same company that offers the billion parts SC10 4x4(which I do love) and then the B44.2 which seems to have so few parts and be so straight forward.

My only question is this, on the big bore shocks, the lower exterior O-ring which goes in the Blue cap, does it go into the bottom of the blue cap or up the outside portion of the threads on the shock body(because thats where I put it)?

Thanks, Joe
You have them on right. Looks pretty fast to me. If I could make a suggestion.............

DRIVE IT HARD AND PUT IT AWAY DIRTY!!! LOL Your going to love this kit. Tops all the 44's.

OH I DID!!!!!! Amazingly easy to driveand drive fast, I've been running 2wd and 4wd SCT and this is as easy, if not easier to drive than the 4wd SCT. Did I break an arm, yes, but hitting a steel beam while in the air would tend to do that, not the fault of the car.

It is easy to drive huh. It soaks everything up and floats over jumps. The length of the kit and the shocks seem to compliment each other. On power it really digs in, very stable and predictable to drive....

Yeah, what advantage does it have lowering the wing 7mm?

I use it because it stays straight and doesn't bend like plastic.

The only disadvantage I can think of is I would be more likely to break a shock tower. If it would have been made to use screws I would be all over one. I like the down force of the plastic ones. So I would wonder if lowering it if it would take away from the down force.
