Good luck with the binding issues.



Just think if after building more then a few kits you think I would of experience the same problems .


This is my last comment with the issue..

normally I give a crap less about Ti screws....But we have a rust issue locally, so I can drop weight and keep the rust at bay. Lets hope the screws dont suck, lol.

I don't care if you guys bust Cherry's balls until they're blue. Just do it without blatant insults and name calling.

thank you

Ok, I tried heating the ball cups and it does not work.

I popped the ball stud off to see if there was any dimpling from the turnbuckle that WC mentioned could be a cause and there was non, it was smooth.

Next, I popped the stud off once and reinstalled it and it was about 50% better, did it one more time and now they are now buttery smooth.

WC has shown rc tech to be his life's meaning so there's no getting rid of him...kinda sucks he ruins a good forum and they don't do anything about it. Maybe he should get a job so he can afford a new car when it comes out. Remember him saying he couldn't afford a $280 car kit, get a job deadbeat

Need some help here, been having a issue with my B5m stepping out when coming off a corner when accelerating. Now I'm running 17.5 class I have lighten up the buggy drivetrain and running a protek 3200 battery. The track I would say is Low to med grip and bumpy with and very dusty

I am running the brass d 3/1 toe/anti
B5 front and rear arms hubs all the way forward
front 35 weight, 31/4 piston,white springs, 24 right height. Rear 32 1/2, with 3/1.4 pistons ,green springs and 24 ride height.
battery all the way back and inline electronics like hartson setup

I was wondering sense my car is light if I should be running lighter oil. the car looks like it's bounce on the track rather then soaking up the bumps.

any help will be great
