ANY FIXXES FOR THE LOSI's 8IGHT T STEERING PLAY AT FULL TURN, an WHEEL WOBBE?
I have a electric 8T truggy, and ever since it was brand new the FRONT WHEELS would wobble if u hold the truggy with one hand and hold the right or left front wheel with the other hand u can jiggle/wobble the wheel an has about 2mm of play, mainly the Rim feels lose from the Spindles...Also i have tryed 2-3 sets of new rims & tightend the wheel nut down very hard, BUT no change... (EVEYTHNG IS TIGHTEND DOWN AS FAR AS IT CAN BE/GO)
Plus when u have the STEERING all the way turned to the right or the left there is alot of play in the tierods linkage, an Spindles/Spindle Carriers...When turned all the way the inside wheel has more play then the outside wheel, inside rim/wheel has 2-3mm an the outter rim/wheel has about 1-2mm, OR IT MITE BE THE OPPESIT i dont have my truggy infront of me right now...
I just redid the steering system on my truggy, New tierod ends/ballcups, New plastic Spindles, New plastic Spindle Carriers, and New bushings for the spindle/spindle carriers...
Also is there anyway to stop or lessen the front rims 2mm of play/wobble on the cvd hub? i only have been useing losi's first version of there truggy rims, i bought an have ton of them..
HOW DID U, OR HOW CAN I GET RID OF THE JIGGLE/WIBBLE/LOOSE STEERING?
(if i buy the losi aluminun spindles & aluminum spindle carriers will it help take some play out of the steering system? btw i already have the aluminum servo saver on my 8T)
HAS ANY ONE TRYED THE NEW VERSION OF LOSI RIMS OR PROLINE RIMS FOR THE 8IGHT T, DO THEY HAVE LESS PLAY?
ALSO MY FRONT TIEROD END/BALL CUP , THE ONE CONNECTED TO THE SPINDLE TO PUSH OR PULL TO TURN, IT KEEPS POPPING OFF ON HARD LANDINGS OR CRASHES AN ONLY ONE WHEEL STEERS, IS THERE ANYTHING I CAN BUY TOO STOP THIS, OR SOMETHING I CAN MAKE, I WAS THINKING OF PUTING A WASHER OVER THE RODEND, BUT THE STEERING BALL's HOLE DOSNT LOOK THREADED SO THERES NO WAY FOR A SCREEW TO HOLD THE WASHER DOWN/ONTOP OF THE RODEND..post a pic if uve done smothing like this, or link to a pic of on that someones done.....
IS THERE ANYONE THAT MAKES BALLS THAT HAVE A HOLE IN TOP AN U CAN PUT A SCREEW IN IT?
List what u got an have done to help stiffin the steering up...
Now im not sure if 1/8th scales are all spose to have play in the steering an rims, as this is the first 1/8th i ever owned.. i ran 1/t0h scales over 13+years an they have tight steering, so im not sure if 1/8ths are spose to be the same?
