There should be the upgraded 8mm shock mounts included in the kit. You do not need the JS mounts. I'm running a 56lb kv5tt truck with no issue
So they are included? i've got the kit on the way
Also whay about centre shaft outdrives and rear tele shaft? they have captured pins/retaining rings now don't they?

Cheers

Yes they are included in the kit. There was issues back in the original the v1 versions, that's been addressed years ago now. I suggest you get the upgraded drive shaft
Ok thanks, i was planning on getting the rear cvd shaft.

I did have one back in 2018 and i had nothing but problems. I sold it after a couple of months

My Vekta5 kit arrived yesterday, and can confirm the 8mm mounts and stops are included. I found the shock mounts in the shock assembly bags, and the shock stops in different bags
The front stops were in with the front bumper parts bag, the rear were in with the rear sway bar bag

The assembly manual that's supplied is very nice. Tip: when you come to installing your diffs make sure they both are facing the same direction or the wheels will spin opposite form each other. Just take your time, anything in question, do ask a few of us here have vektas

You guys are troopers doing the whole build. I just wanted the RTR so I could drive right away. Call me impatient. Haha

It's the best way to get to know your rig and can guarantee that ample loctite was used in the proper places. I promise you know matter what rc anyone decides on purchasing they'll be tearing it apart at some point whether upgrading, maintenance, or breakages from heavy bashing. Some just love the build

Yep, pulled my engine and turned it into a 34cc. Very simple but learned about the truck.
