1. Plastic outdrives - If plastic spool/gear diff cups push the oring out. Take an exacto knife and very lightly take a little material from the inside edge (inner spool cup). Very light amount....while pushing in cup over oring take a small flathead and push oring back in (before cups snaps in).
2. Camber plates - (4 dot) file a little on the inner part...will slide in smooth.
3. Arms - do not over torque the screw into the pivot ball..it will create a friction point....tighten screw then finish with wrench (on pivot ball) this will keep it all straight.
4 bearing caps - may fit too tight, slide the cap in with all the notches facing down. place a drop of oil prior to installing to make movement smooth.
5. Steering Rack
a. front most bearings - apply a very small amount of Locktite on holding screws (less than a drop, with a exacto knife. this will keep the bearing in fixed position for break-in of rack.
b. inner bearing - tighten and place a drop of oil on rack, if you overtighten front bearings will feel gritty.
Not too loose not to tight...once the Rack gets grooves then re-adjust to ensure...check after the first few batt packs.
6. Belt tension
front belt in lowest setting may rub the front plastic battery positioner. Flip positioner upside down or remove
more to come
