    RE: Anyone Have a Mini MGT?

    well i just got home from work and there was a box waitin for me lol. i got all tires on and boy do they have a lot of play. they dont spin straight at all. i mean the back 2 are not bad but the front 2 are not lookin so good im getin some bad wheel wobble . any ideas how i can fix this?there is another issuse im having . i took the shock spring spacers off and now the shock springs dont seem to b long enough. i mean when the truck sits normal it is all comprassed down but when i lift the truck up the spring is not goin all the way down there is a gap. when i put the spacers back on it closed the gap could this be a issue?

    RE: Anyone Have a Mini MGT?

    my wheels wobble also. it's the foams in the tires, that's what's giving you the wobble. they aren't perfectly straight in there. i'll take a look at mine and take the shock spacers off and take a look at that gap you are talking about. i havent taken the spacers off of mine yet. i installed the big block in mine yesterday, i just have to get a pipe that is not really long so it doesn't rub the tire.

    RE: Anyone Have a Mini MGT?

    yea i thought it was cuz of the foam as well. i got it all ready i just need some fuel. i took a few pics i will up load them . there is one of the gap im talkin about as long as the truck is siting down u will not see it. i just think if u hit a few bump it will come lose. it said at one point the high speed should 2 1/4 then 2 1/2 . mine has come a little befor 2 1/2 and for brake in it says it needs to b 2 1/2 then u back it off 1/4 a turn. should i back it off a tad befor i start the truck. i never heard of such a thing

    RE: Anyone Have a Mini MGT?

    I think it was when I jumped then I didn't cut the throttle. I have taken it apart looked it then tighten up the loose screws and things then started it to see if it was just a matter of a few loose screws. I think that after I jumped it, it only had a bit more life in them, the drive shaft not connecting and clicking started almost immediately. .



    Cheers

    RE: Anyone Have a Mini MGT?

    redfox03, I use the Savage XL header/pipe,it works well for me.

    1mtx1,I have very little wobble.Its my fault though,I put my factory tires on different rims.I have to look at the tread on the tires to notice.
    I dont think the wobble will effect anything,unless its some crazy wobble.

    make sure your wheels are on the hubs all the way make sure your wheels are nice and tight , make sure u wheels are balance as well, if all thoses things check then give team ae a call they replace any thing on the truck for the 1st 90 days ,most time u just have to send in the bad part and they ship u new replacement to u free of charge

    RE: Anyone Have a Mini MGT?

    is it the tires that wobbles or the axial that the wheel is attached to? On my Mini all 4 wheels feel as if the nuts are loose and they have a lil play when i move them but they are perfectly fine.
    If thats what u are experiencing u have nothing to worry about [8D]

    well they both wobble. when i spin the axials they have some wobble to them. when i put the tires on they would wobble as well. there is alot of play i can move the tires around alot. every othere truck i have had i would get some play like this but not as bad wheel wobble. is it ok to drive it like this? when i push it on the ground it seams to roll in a straight line with no issue

    RE: Anyone Have a Mini MGT?

    yeah.... even the guy at my LHS notice the wobble and asked if they were on correctly. I guess the wheels do have alot of play in them...but since the Mini was my first truck, i didn't notice it that much. Ive had no issues with them pertaining to the wobble.

    It is a great truck!
    Ive abused my mini (with my wobbly wheels) going on 3 years now and i have had no problems with axials or wheels due to the wobble. As u drive it, u wont notice it and it wont be a problem.
