Ideally they should not bind in the arms or the inserts. Rear arms this is easily achievable. Front arms are a different story. The drop screws binds the hinge pin. I gave up trying to ream it with my crappy Turdigy reamer. Someone posted earlier in this thread that slightly drilling out the droop screw hole before inserting the screw fixed the issue.

BTW, the stock grey hinge pins do bend easily on this buggy.

Yeah, the stock hinge pins are not that strong. I ordered hardened tool steel drill blanks and cut them to size, bulletproof.........

Pre-tap the droop screw holes with a 10/32 tap and pins will slide thru smoothly.

thanks a lot for your answers.

@b_recliner: I fully agree with you. Anyway i don`t want to copy everything i see on the pro cars but i was curious of the reason why they change something drastically like that. I will have to buy at least another scale to see how the weight bias with my rather heavy 4S1P LiPos is (582gramms). As far as i can tell the additional little brass weight added to the front underneath the front diff pinion had a noticeable, positive impact so i guess the movement of the LiPo will have even more. If it turns out positively for me i don`t know.


Regarding the Hinge pins: I thought about getting spring steel in a high material grade, chrome them and put them in to see how long they last? To get those Mugen pins would be a much easier and cheaper way though. As i said lots of us have the same problem with binding suspensions on this car. Sometimes caused by something else but often by bended hinge pins.

Speaking of binded Suspension, i bought a ball miller for my dremel which is slightly smaller than the hole in the rod ends. Squeezing with pilers didn`t help very long. Now i don`t have axial movement but they turn very smoothly on the balls.

@Casper: Thanks for your answers too and specially the hint about the clutch. I never came to the idea that it basically works like a slipper. But it makes sense He probably can adjust the preload accoridng to the grip level. Once it exeeds a certain torque it slips.

Can you actually buy this clutch in the states or is it commonly used over there ?


Regards


Florian

You can buy the clutch from Tekno RC - it is called "Traktion Drive".

Commonly used? No. Some people use them but direct drive via a pinion/spur is more common.

Will the sensor wire that you get with a tekni t8 1900 work or is it to short?

Thanks for the Information. I checked it on Amain. I don`t want to have the additional maintenance work to do.

Hello all, I have a question, I tried searching but cant find an answer, Can i run premounted AKA wheels or do I have to run the Losi stock wheels because of offset? I've been running stock wheels, but wanting to run some premounts. Anyone using premounts on 3.0 E? Please Advise, Thanks!!!
