There ball cups this happens over time. Instead of replacing them cut small squares and plastic bag, place between the ball and cup when snapping together, remove the excess. The plastic will take up the slop in ball cup. If the link feels to stiff, remove, find a thinner plastic material, and repeat
2) I noticed one rear ball stud likes to back out. Being this kit is a lot of metal into metal, is it good to use blue loctite, or just keep double checking them?
Don't get to crazy with loctite it will make the car hard to work on when trying setup changes
3) my spur gear came loose today! Again, something that should just be checked often, or did I not do something proper? On my way home I was wondering it it had to do with my use of push brakes today.
Great suggestion by Oleg, i'll give this one a try, i've had the same problem on my mod car.
4) after a not minor contact with another car, my drive shaft came out. Is this normal also?
Another idea and what I've done on my cars. Cut a small piece of soft foam and place in the hole on the spear gear side where the drive shaft mounts. This will act as a spring against the drive shaft which helps it from being knocked out of the front.
I really enjoy this car so far. So many others have inquired about it and probably placing orders since I got one.
