Make sure the threads of the grub screw and hole are clean and don't have grease in them. Then use a small amount of threadlock on the grub screw.

i locktite the grub screw and tighten it down real tight. ive noticed i only have them back out when i hit curbs pretty hard/crashes.

I file a flat spot on the pin. Not sure if shrink will fit inside the knuckle though.

Default 416

I would be willing to guess less flex good for carpet or high bite surface.

More flex, allows you to leave out some extra screws.

Definitely more flex. The one-piece top deck removes the cross-brace behind the spur...

Looks like it could give more rear end lateral flex and less longitudinal flex.

Hi guys,

the new deck has more flex in rear of as there is no cross brace on rear bulk.
The deck itself is a bit stiffer than the standard deck but and has been tested to be used without the steering screw on it.

Taking off the screw from stering deck/bridge gives more flex which improves steering, especially more on-power steering going out of the steering.

Decks are available, contact me for pricing and more information with pm or email vesa@v-dezign.net

Default spare belt

I am looking for the replacement belts for the 416 and I found 2 part numbers for both front and rear. Which one do I need? The front belt part numbers are TA51343 or 6244016 and the rear part numbers are TA51344 or 6244017.

Thanks.

Hi,

if you are looking for spare parts just look here:
http://sakaguchinet.dyndns.org/sites...spareparts.htm

So you can see there are two regular SP numbers for the TRF416 belts.
