Curious, has anyone else had problems with the screw heads stripping out on their XXX-S? I've got 3 screws now that are stuck on the chassis. One of my steering arms broke because the !@#$ ball links are hell to get on and off and the pressure snapped the arm. Now, I can't take the arm off as the button head screw that holds it on is stripped at the head where you put the alan wrench into, and the same goes for the bottom screw that's holding the arm assembly in, so I can't disasemble it that way either. This blows.

jitsu,

you must be using bad tools and over-tightening your screws when you install them. the problem your having shouldnt happen. get some screwdriver style, alen drivers, then be carefull when tightening your screws. this should solve the problem....

yodace,


190mm is for electric and 200mm is for nitro sedans. nitro sedans need the extra width so they can hook up ok....

nitro sedans suck if you ask me....but thats just my opinion....

Blazn, thanks for the help. I believe it is my tools that's the problem...

Also, I agree, it seems all nitro sedans tend to drift rather then steer throuth turns. They don't hook-up well and I've never seen a scale size GT racer drift, then again, most GT racers aren't 4wd either. Oh well. =)

oh yah, just so you people know....

if you are using low roll center blocks: you cant use the optional short shocks because your a-arms will not be able to reach the droop screws. if u use the stock roll center, use the short shocks all the way around. if u use the low roll center, use the stock length shocks. this should save some of you alot of heart ache.

peace out
