    RE: RXT track problem

    EDDIE: Pins do not punch through the caps. They seem to rip right out. I found the front lower billet mount is getting bent. The pins are tight in the cups, no movement.

    bkfamily1: I have them seated pretty good in the caps. Thats why I had to use spacers on the mounts this time. I tightened the mounts flat against the differential case, and found that the pin did punch through both smaller caps. I do need the caps asap. Iwill check with Eddie to see where that order is. If they are still in H.K. I will deffinatly take you up on that offer.

    Found the culprit of the whole mess today. The billet aluminum lower front support bends, allowing the lower arm pin to fling out. I straightend it out and it happened again. I am replacing the billet front and rear mounts with the factory plastic ones. The pins don't punch through the cups, they rip out. Might have something to do with the no give of the metal. Well it will give, but one way (LOL)All the impact is going straight to the small plastic pin cups. The weakest link is the lower front billet mount. If I change back to plastic mounts, they might share the impact force. I guess aluminum is not always better.

    RE: RXT track problem

    I learned a important lesson these past few weeks.

    YOU EITHER BASH YOUR VEHICLE OR RACE IT ON THE TRACK. Because I chose to bash the truggy before I decided to race it, I have to replace most of the steering knuckles that took a pounding. It does not take a good rc driver to run full bore down a wide open field hitting small holes and launching 20 foot long jumps. Now that I am on the track I have been noticing the damage that bashing can do to your track setup. It can be as simple as a slightly twisted mount, drive shafts. We all know that when we bash we dont take it too easy on the vehicles.

    RE: RXT track problem

    the problem your having with your front axles coming out is because you dont have your droop set....on the bottom of your arms is some grub screws...after you get the ride height you want you need to drop your truggy from about a foot or so onto a table...then you want to tighten them grub screws to were they just touch the arms at that height...if you dont do this your arms drop and this allows your axles to fall out of the cups

    firebird78: Front axle problem has been solved. It was the pivot balls loosening up as I drove around the track, which pulled the front drive axle further out of the cups.
