Maybe the wrong offset wheel? Should be 0 degree offset.

It's actually not too difficult. Just use a vice with the jaws open enough for the pin to fall through, you can tap the pin with a hammer to start it, then you need a small drift to knock it through after its flush with the bone.
Putting it back is easy, light taps will move the pin through the bone a fraction at a time.

Fred or Korey, Are you running a short shock setup and if you are what shocks and parts are you using?

I actually haven't tried the new shorter shocks, or any short shock setup. I'm just running the kit shocks with HB 6 hole pistons.

Losi 80-100 works well.

For easily obtainable oils... Really thick losi shock oils work good on asphalt. As Advil says, I like Losi 80-100 so far. I have losi 90 in my car right now and it works pretty good.

I've also been playing with some pro spec diff oils as well (1500, 2000, mixing a few drops of 1000 in 2000), but I'm realizing I'm way too lazy for that and just use losi oils

Got my Tamiya 6 hole pistons installed this weekend drilled at 1.2 with Losi 80 wt. Seem to be nice on the bench. The pistons fit really well. Have to get it out to Norcal this week for some testing.
