You're right, shouldn't have bothered with that.

OK red front and stay with white in rear?

What should I be looking to do to help correct this? 37.5wt yellow front shocks, 5k front diff. 30wt white rear shocks 3k rear diff. Car was wanting to go left/right swaying back and forth. 20mm ride height.
I always had this problem with my B44.3... was hoping this new B64D would be easier to drive, which I'm about to start building. Hopefully some of the suggestions others have offered will help.

It seems like guys are running much thicker center diff oil (200k +) in this B64 compared to the B44 (mine usually had 60-100k). Can anyone explain why? I'm going to be building this car to run outdoor in low to medium grip dirt and used to put in 60k, not sure what to use now.

My first B64 experience couldn't of been more different than that guys. Maybe that setup he used is shit for his track? My car using the kit set was super easy to drive, it tracks super straight, jumps good. Definitely better than the 22-4 2.0 I had been racing.

Diff cases are more open/bigger and the gears are a tad larger, reducing the oils ability to resist motion. Thicker oil is required to get the same diff action as before.

I agree. The set up I used was not the stock but was offered on AE site. It obviously didn't work for my track or my driving style.

The real take away here is that others have seen the same reaction out of the car as I described. All it means is that a better setup is out there for me. Last year,my b6 was good out of the box but lacked rear traction. I'm not afraid of spending time finding the best setup for me. Just asking for thoughts and tips.

I'm going to start with thickening up the front and rear diff oils, going up to 32.5 in the rear shocks and then play with different springs.

My local hobby shop loves the Spektrum 6240. Tried to use one with my B5M, wouldn't fit with the removable plug. Bought one to try with the B64d.

The cable is kinda ackward in this chassis too. Think this bend is going to be a problem?

i also have the right bellcrank slightly rubs the right siderail... on max angle
note that the left side doesn't rubs.
I had this same issue and it isn't normal, but it doesn't seem to be a common problem either.

AE is out of chassis at the moment, so they will be sending me one as soon as they are in. If I tried to assemble it as-is, I had to put a good 10 lb of force on the shock tower to flex the nose back enough for the holes to line up. In the meantime, I opened up the holes in the upper deck to remove some of the tension in the front assembly and it survived it's first raceday.

Take some quality pictures and email them. They should take care of you.

The bend will be fine. The outer rubber/casing looks like there is "stress" but the wire inside will be ok.

You can cut off that outer rubber gromet next to the servo. You can also get servo wires that don't have the outer cover from Horizon. Different lengths also.

I made a couple of changes today that made the car worlds better. Its competitive now. I changed the rear springs to white and moved the ball studs on the front tower in the #2 position (making the camber links longer. It calmed the car down a lot. Now I just need to get some laps in. FYI, I also regeared my Reedy Mach 3 13.5 from 81/28 to 78/28 and I'm going back. Ran like poop. Going back to the 81 spur..

I tried it too, had to use a front sway bar in the rear. Rear end was still a little loose but I think I'll have it dialed in by our next points race in 2 weeks
