Mm4 is for ultra high grip tracks. I bought a second car for parts for the Spektrum race and didn't need anything from it so I'm going to build it and play around with some stuff. Gonna try MM3 to start.

What's up fellas? I just ordered my Diggity Designs rear shock tower on their web site. Very reasonably priced. The other parts like the front tower, battery strap, and the ackerman plate should be ready in a week or so.

Order up!

Matt

It was mentioned earlier that the hexes were rubbing on the hubs. Sure enough mine were. The fix was like .2/.3 shim between the hub and the hex. Once I did this it tightened up on the pin and hasn't fell out. Was really starting to be a pita when changing tires.......

Put a small drop of ca glue on the pin before you slide it in. It will be more difficult to take apart, but not too bad.

I take my CVDs out of the car entirely too often for that... usually once a race night.

I did the same.. but soon, torquing down on the wheels will deform/ruin the shim, and the pins will start falling out again.

CA doesnt stick very well to metal so they slide out with just a little effort with a small hex driver. After a small drop one or two times you get enough buildup to keep the pin from falling out even after removal. Started doing it on the desc and it worked well there, and has been just as effective on the 210 and 410 buggies.

I approve of that upgrade

As always I 100% back Tresrey products so if you have any problems or issue's let me know. Thankfully I haven't had one the entire time we've been in the US

I think they do, but I was/am in the same boat and had a ton of Rb5 tires, only prob is the K wheels are thinner in the axle area, so you have to use washers to tighten them up..
