I have never had a problem with mine...but
threadlock will help keep it in place and not fall out
I am hoping to be picking up a kit next week. Never had a drifter before so it will be my first. Not even sure where to start with motor and ESC yet. Should be fun. Any advice on things that need to replaced from the basic kit right away or is it enough to get going and see what I need down the road?
you will want the UWA CVDs...and alumium steering for it..the stock CVDs are limited and you will get chatter/vibrations at full lock. Plus, the NEW aluminum rear pulley carrier with built in belt tensioner would be good as well since there is slop with the stock chassis as opposed to the carbon chassis
for ESC/motor combos...Hobbywing Xerun are good combos....you can get them at hobbypartz.com....go with something like 10.5T motor
also, you will want a FAST steering servo
how are you liking those magnet mounts? I think I will go back to stock body mounts for now...the new drift track is quite technical and I am hitting rails and wall too much and with the blind spots...I need the extra protection that the body gives to protect my chassis
I broke one of the lower ball ends on the lower arms and also broke one of the turnbuckles on the upper yokomo C arms for the KPI.
