Leave the hinge pins alone. Build up with the ball studs as-is and then determine if they are tight and identify which ones then polish if needed.

The pinch method on the cups works pretty good. But dont use needle nose pliers, that was not overly great. A plier than can evenly put pressure on the center of the cups seems to work best.

bbrace... yes polish them.. why would you not? it helps free everything up and makes silky smooth movement in arms and ball ends.

on the front strc braces.. you have set screws to tighten hingepins so slop if your car has it is your fault. you can space the front hubs as well if your plastic is worn and you need to.

here is the thing.. don't get your car so tight that if you get one spec of dust in it that your suspension will bind. I have seen these anal guys who if you can feel any and I mean any movement in the arm they are ripping the car apart. Then you watch them run and they still are out of the top 10..lol got to have something to blame I guess..lol

Some guys were saying there was a Futaba or maybe a KO that dropped in. They were out of my price range so I made due. Been running like this for 2 months w/o issue or pinched servo wire.

What is the pinch method? I have never heard of this before. I think I lightly polish the hinge pins.

I run Viper ESC's and KO receivers. I turned the VTX10 on its side and mounted it in front of the lipo tray. The receiver is to the left and the 6pk cap is to the right.

I have run my ESC's flipped and flopped but could never get used to looking at it, LOL. I hate the way it looks even though the space and arrangement options improve significantly.
