That video is clearly a joke. But that doesn't mean they're not also working on something. . .

Trying to remove the slop from the front wheels of my B5M. Aside from CA gluing the steering block insert into the steering block, which is one source of slop, what are your experiences with after market aluminum casters and steering blocks from companies like STRC or Hot Racing? For those that did use these products, did you also CA glue the insert into the aluminum steering block? I realize in the front wheels there are a lot of articulations that inherently cause slop, but I was wondering if anything helped.

The hot racing and STRC parts fit horribly, and can cause issues with other broken parts.

Two considerations with slop: Deal with it and don't worry, or glue the inserts.

Gluing fixes the slop. I still have many sets of front hubs that the bearing dont line up perfectly. For that...I just deal with gritty bearings.

Avid bellcrank screws got rid of 90% of my steering slop.

Hmm of all the places I HAVE found slop, that really isn't one of them. Not to the point that I would ever spend $24 on 4 screws at least. That's CRAZY

The gear set inside my servo has more slop than my rack actually does. LOL

I found the inner steering bearing race to be a bit bigger than the outside diameter of the standard m3 thread on the stock screw. It let the bearing wobble on the stock ones.
