There are V2 steering blocks? Are they available yet? I want them. Also, what does the upgraded motor mount do for performance? My LHS has them in stock and they look cool.

There are not yet! That is just what I would like to have updated. I think the motor mount was for small spurs and large pinions like for stock

Balance the pod - no.
Making sure the axle is centered - yes.

What are people doing when assembling the steering blocks on the king pin? Are you reaming the hole so the steering block slides freely or drilling a hole in the side and set screwing the block to the pin so it does not slide like the WGT car?

Replacing with an Associated steering block is not preferred.

I don't personally own a Rebel I'm asking for a friend.

Default Learning about the Top Car

My rear pivot seems to flop to one side or another like there is a grove or something not letting it settle to the middle. This might explain how it doesn't seem to shoot too straight or why it's so twitchy. How do I fix it? Replace?

Actually I disconnected the links and it isn't the pivot. What about the links is making it do this. They are very free. Is there a link worn out part. Should I replace the links. What is going on? Anyone?

When I only connect one link it works fine only when both links are connected

Ok I fiddled around a bit and seems when you loosen the two screws to the left and right of the pivot that mounts the pivot to the chassis and pull it towards the pod as it is tightened it does not act weird but when I push it towards the chassis and tighten the two screws it totally will not sit free but to one side or another

I am new to link cars

Thanks

That is how you adjust the center football, with both links connected it should be silky smooth.
You need to adjust the football with the 2 screws that mount it to the chassis.
This is link car 101 stuff, where is O.D. he should have walked you thru this already.

This happens very often with link cars. if you hit something really hard you should take everything off the pod plate. And then check it. With nothing on the pod plate (just graphite) it should transitiion from left to right smoothly and fall under its own weight.

Always check this with everything off the pod because it will be much easier to tell this way.

If your car is ill handling or your side springs look all messed up this is the first thing you should check. Then move onto other places.
