Randy, Did you remove the rear droop screws or is it full droop with them in?
With them.

Yes the BB stand offs work.

Same/similar to the B4.

Problem solved. I took it apart, polished the end of the cvd axle with a demel medium polishing wheel, regreased and reassembled. All good now! I will say though when testing on pavement just to get the slipper set the buggy did NOT like a shorty lipo all the way forward. Rear end kicked around like crazy when just trying to make a slow turn. Now I'm playing a little with bench setup and need some help. Feel stupid as I'm having a hard time figuring out the setup sheets, are you guys running the front axles trailing or straight inline? Again, sorry for sounding dumb, just trying to get some quick info before I actually hit the track with it tonight and want to be accurate with the base setup so I'm tweaking from a common starting point. Track is medium bite indoor clay, tends to blow out pretty quick, Rebars/BK/Bar Codes are the Rear tire of choice with The same for fronts, all in soft compounds.
Thanks!

I'm running a short pack with a single L__I batter pad in the rear then I'm using the thin Team Durango pads from the 410 cut down to length to fill the gap. So one L__I thick, the one single TD pad, battery, fill in the gap with more Td pads.

I also have 1 oz right behind/below the servo.

For people that are having problem with too little rear droop, any chances that you may not notice there are changes on the download manual, which indicate a different rear busing when you are fitting the gear box to the chassis? the part number in the printed manual are wrong, and it will not allow your gear box to be fully seated on to the chassis, just a thought.

I know it has been asked a couple times already but in the last 80+ pages I havent seen the answer yet. What does this car weigh? I would really like to know what it weighs fully built but without any electronics. Couple of posts suggested it was too heavy for 17.5.

No need to use any right no need for a grub screw. What I described was the issue with mine.

I have one CVD doing as you described and that is my only issue so far. I have rebuilt both using every combination of bone/pin/coupler/axle there is and have isolated it to one of the axles. Tried every set of holes on said axle with the same result. Comparing the cup of the good axle vs the cup of the bad axle they look the same, I can't see any burrs or machining defects that would make one work and the other not. The holes *look* like they are 180 degrees from each other but I don't have a way to measure it so can't be 100% sure. I'll finish out the car and come back to it, and see if anyone else comes across this issue in the meantime. Everything else about the buggy has met or exceeded my expectations, and believe me they were high!

Randy thanks for posting the setup, I'm starting from there. My track should be a med-high bite track, indoor clay. I know it's a tough gig having to go out and play with your new buggy all day and figure out a starting setup, but someones gotta do it right?

-rocky b
There you go.Same issue I had

I did and fixed it myself. The ball end of the CVD hits all the holes in the axle that the pin slips into. Like they all have high spots.

You will see pull the pin and pudh the cvd into the axle you have to push it in,it binds.

I just put my cvd in a drill took some 1000 sandpaper and removed alittle material from the ball. Problem solved. Also you can chuck the axle in the drill and clean up the ID of the axle where the cvd goes in.
