A few pages back someone said they ran a long screw through both outdrives and put a locknut on it.

Nice one T.O.P.
I've never stripped the hole by screwing the set screw in but I have stripped it in a crash. What you need to do is put a 6mm set screw in the hole you are not using. This will prevent damaging the open hole. Now if you like bullet proofing your car you can use the Team Tamale aluminum rear hubs like I did. I think the plastic is very durable and this is an issue I've seen on many TC's.

Hi,

I have been testing and I have a problem, when I leave throtle in the corner the car oversteer, it is like the front end "glue" itself in the asphal, but normally I don't have a lot of steering, can anyone help me?

Thank you

This should also work very well, I just didn't have those supplies with me so I resorted to glue.

Roedor, can you lay down the rear shocks more? That's the behavior I've seen when I've tried standing up my rear shocks.

Hi Steve - I have seen those alu hubs on an earlier post in this thread... very nice, but $50

I would buy them if they were anodised red though

Cheers for the tip about filling the other hole with another set screw- I will give it a go.

Daniel.

Pit,

You can helisink the hubs to make a more secure connection or ca the setscrew in the hub. I have a car with using each method and they both work well.

After a bunch of testing on the same carpet track, here's what I ended with. There were some adjustments I couldn't try, but I'm feeling the car right now, and I think it is quite good.
