The other way is to leave the set screw out and superglue the retaining ring on.

Edit: Sorry no need to worry I went through all the bags and found them in another bag.
I did the same thing!

I thought I was missing o-rings and then found them in another bag, haha.
By the way, they are the same as the b4 o-rings if you ever need to replace them....

Default Assembly and CVA Axles

Just a little advice following up some recent posts. When I assembled my TC6 I skipped the shocks and the diff right off. You find out later that some of the parts needed in the assembly are in those and other bags.

As far as the CVA's, I had one that stuck when the set screw was in. I took another back apart and swapped around parts. Then they both were smooth and unbound. I am not sure if it was the rebuilding from scratch or if the parts worked better swapped. Either way in the end they were all good.

Stiction indeed, even tried using "green slime". A teflon guide and endseal like those on Tamiya would be a great option.

Default stiction galore

i finally got the stiction out had to rebuild it a number of times.
and tried green slime, silicon...etc.
think the plastic insert was binding just a bit.
ending up reaming just a slight amount of plastic from it, and it seems to take care of the problem.

My opinion of the problem is that either the spacer or the rod guide is to thick and when you tighten the cap it squeezes the o-ring and in turn pinches the shock rod. If you back the cap off a little the problem goes away. Unfortunatley you can't run that way. I tried using a 3mm and .75mm shim in place of the spacer and it made for a smoother shock. I don't know exactly what combination of shims is perfect.
I ended up using Tamiya shocks. It's a shame really ....

If that's the case, then why not just sand down the spacer slightly on a piece of sandpaper??

I thought of that but thought that using shims was faster and more accurate but I didn't have enough for all four shocks.

That works in my case. And now they are very smooth and easy to bild.

Hi!


Probably it was described somewhere but what spacer is need for same
effect.

In some setups is for example:
- 2mm spacer with sliver outer ball on hub...

Which spacer I should put for same effect if I use black ball ?



Regards!
m


edit:

probably 0.5-0.7mm silver is higher then black one ...
