You can get 2mm longer ball studs to solve that issue with the rear hubs. You may have to drill the hole all the way through first with a smaller bit of course, but they won't contact the drive shaft.

The S64 is very good but I have breakage issues with the all plastic construction. We have broken a few bellcranks, the rear hubs need to be aluminum because we keep pulling the ballstuds out, and plastic shocks dont have the bleeder hole in the caps which makes them much harder to build well. I was really hoping the 21M was a carbon version of the 64, but I didnt research before I bought it. Determined to make it work, but not happy that I bought it. The 20M is a DREAM to drive, like I can go into a trance and just let it drive itself.

I have never driven on any other track so I cannot compare it to outdoor asphalt or any form of carpet. And my cars are USGT rules, USGT motor, blinky, tires, bodies, 1380g weight... all that

I also have the FF21 on the way for a FWD class. Cant wait for that to arrive. I have the schumacher mission and I despise the car. For $225, its a fiberglass and plastic kit with the worst shocks and steering design i have ever seen.

As a reference, I am currently running 8.5s laps with the 20M, fastest I have turned was an 8.3. The 21M I can only get to about 8.9-8.8 range. I will say my friend likes a car that is very loose in the rear and he is able to drive my 21M to a 8.6 lap.
Bellcranks and rear hubs are both available in aluminum if you need them for the S64, adding a set screw to the unused hole and using a longer ball stud helps with the rear hubs, shock caps are easily drilled for a bleeder and have been doing it for years.
There is a S64 with carbon fiber chassis in the works but it looks like it will keep all its plastic parts, only the chassis will be upgraded.

has anyone built 21M yet? I have been running mine, its getting more comfortable. I seem to have issues with their new swaybar design. My front swaybar does literally nothing side to side. You cant extend the link to increase action because it will rub the CVD unless I add a huge link to get above the CVD which is the way the older cars are designed. On the rear I can at least get action but im having a hell of a time equaling them out side to side.

My 20M is great BTW, had no issues get those set.
