Too bad you aren't here anymore. We are all going to norcal this weekend. Track is killer for mod sedan and the racing crowd is cool and laid back. All that's really missing is you, Alex, and Dujuan.
I race everything out here, this summer was 1/8 buggy and monster truck. Last summer was mod buggy and gas truck. Over the winter it will be TC and Tamiya mini's with some Losi Slider sprint car racing thrown in as well

sorry for asking....but what is the rcd and a lcd?

i have been triming these castor blocks for about it seems to be a half hour and the dogbone seems to be snug with the hole in the castor block.im going to be using my dremel to shave some material out tonight...i work ful-time during the day and part-time at night...and its at golf driving range...so i have been doing my build there....

then when i get the clearance for them i will continue the rest of the build...

You really dont have to take that much material off. Don't make such of a big deal about it. Take both inside edges off the hole on the c hub where the lcd goes through. You only have to take like a 2mm chamfer off the edge. I use an exacto, it takes 2 minutes per side, if that.

If you're testing clearance while trimming, make sure you've got the CVD in, and secured with the pin and hex on the other side. If it slides down even slightly, it will greatly exaggerate the amount of clearance needed, which isn't how it will work when it's in the car.

Shreff, I built my two one one-ways and they were totally fine this time. Thanks for the build tips. Maybe Losi will consider revising the directions that come with the one-way, it sounds like I'm not the only one that found them difficult to follow.

If none of this made sense it's because I'm heavily drugged today. Stupid wisdom teeth. :-(

larry,
sorry for the dumb questions....after i actually put the whole thing together i realized that i took way to much plastic off as it was......i was under the impression that the whole joint and all had to fit with ease......ha...my bad....

i didnt get to much more done tonight cause i was busy.....

here is a good qeustion i think..i know kits usually want the shokcs to be so many mm long...you guys just threading the shock end on all the way and call it a day or do you have an actuall mm size?

lmk,
matt

i haven't ever really built them to a specific length, but i do make sure they are all at the same length and long enough to allow the maximum droop setting you would imagine yourself wanting.

Based on his posts, I had him at 15 years old. Either way, he's on my blocked list.
