Default finished

Finally got it done. Seems like the front wheels are bound up. Only spins a couple of rotations before they stop. Can't seem to see the problem, has anyone else had this issue? I backed the wheel nut off, so it is not overtightened.

@ilanstylz Those hubs allow for the trailing or inline axle adjustments. Use the 0-4 insert that should be in the kit and place the 4 facing towards the rear for a full trailing setup. If you need to look at the 210 manual.

Make sure the front bearings are seated fully. Also make sure you put the spacer setup on the front axle correctly.

Did you get the inserts for the front hubs?



These parts allow for the front axle to mount and set the trailing angle.

you should have them as they're required for the rear hubs also.

So take the 0-4 insert and place it so the axle goes all the way to the back(facing rear of the car). Then assemble the rest. Should be fine.

Its cool I ordered a bunch of spares which included the correct front hubs needed. I'm actually almost done with the build, just gotta work on the turnbuckles and shocks and I'll be good to go........

That is the plan.

Had a quick look at the parts and the new spindles are with the rest of the parts trees. Floating around in the big bag.

Here's another newbie to the rango's but what nut drivers are you guys using to tighten down the wheel nuts for the tires? My dynamite and house nut drivers are to thick to fit inside the wheel in order to tighten the nut down..................

I had the same problem. When I tighten the wheel nut just above tight enough. The front wheels will only rotate a few turns. At the end I sanded down the plastic collar abit. Now I can crank the wheel nut down tight and the wheel still spins freely.

I believe the wheel pin flexes back against the plastic hub and the hex pushes back on to the collar then against the bearing causing a binding. There is a step inside hex stopping from it to push back on to the collar but since its plastic it does moves abit. Best solution is get the metal hex.

Randy,
I thought the hubs that came with the truck (that have a fixed trailing axle) were different then the buggy hubs, r u sure u can use either without a problem?
