my kit was complete with no issues going together, sometimes screws and washers are in random other bags not in the correct Bag A-Bag C only think i have had issues with is like mentioned above, the camber links are too long to run settings like 1A in the rear etc, I did have a little bit of stiction initially on the shocks after initial build but after quick practice session that was all gone...

My car feels pretty good running the #3 pistons with 45F and 30R running kevens halloween classic setup with rear links in 7A and only 1* camber up front, car is a touch loose on entry but feels pretty good mid to exit, going to try the drilled shocks if i can ever find anything that will hold those tiny 1mm drill bits

What a well written summary Buckaroo. Well said. Are you able to give me some more info on the Losi shock part (part number)? Anthony.

Someone should find the bloke who's job it is is to tap the bulkheads at AE and tell him to stop drinking during his lunch break. Half the problem solved.

Dammit I give up, do any RPM ball ends work? and can you bore out a hole in the ball cups and will work?

Got my TC6 kit today! The Big Brown Truck just dropped it off.

Guess what? Yup, one of the bulkheads has the now classic oversize hole with no threads! That's a fraternity I didn't want to join. Gonna have to give AE a call tomorrow first thing.

I'm probably going to go ahead and assemble all of the other sub assemblies, just to make sure nothing else is missing!

I agree 100%, as after a full inventory, I've been able to determine that the ONE bad hole on the ONE bulkhead is my only issue with this kit (so far, more to follow tomorrow).

Now, if only my MurffDog ceramic diff ball set and Boss 17.5 would show up tomorrow, I'll only be waiting on my back ordered Tekin RS and THAT DAMN BULKHEAD.

Heck, it'll give me plenty of time to work on the gearing selection for stock. Anyone know AEs turn around time with shipping new parts?
