I used black silicone wheb building my diff. Not had one leak yet. Losi bladders are a perfect fit, no air.

With the cnc parts for the front end am I better off going with the hubs or the knuckles? I know both together is a no. I'm leaning toward the knuckles, but will having cnc knuckles just mean I'll break more c hubs?

I have both cnc and I wouldn't recommend the c hubs they bend and if you want my set I will ship them for 20$.

What Losi Shock bladders are you guys referring to? A part number would be great! I'm testing one of these cars for a friend and these shocks refuse to go to a neutral rebound or not hydro-lock for that matter. Even with the shafts pushed all the way in when tightened these sock will lock 7/8th the way in and draw air like a mofo. I'm tempted to throw a set of T3 shocks on this thing lol.

Those are the bladders. You will never get zero rebound as the shock shaft goes higher than the bladder when fully compressed.

I built them using 2mm of kwik clips on the shaft while screwing the top on.

Do the CNC knuckles bend or do they just take out a c hub?

Stock bladders do not work. TLR5089 are the bladders. The present wisdom is zero rebound for carpet racing.

Here's a handy shock rebound building tool.

Something will bend/break on a hard hit with most cars. I prefer the aluminum chub to bend rather than break a plastic part. I have managed some wins with a bent chub that wouldn't have happen with a broken part. Most of the time the bent chub can be straightened without disassembling.

Yeah i see what you mean, surely after much bending though the c hub will eventually become to weak.

have you had many of the new 3rd gen knuckles break? I havent tried my 3rd gens yet but they do look to be much thicker plastic especially around where the screws go in the top and bottom of them.

Still on gen2 knuckles, seldom break those items.

anyone have any right front knuckles they want to sell? everyone seems to be out of stock on knuckles and c-hubs. I've got a big race weekend coming up and would like some spares just in case.

Cool. How many versions of the c hubs did they do? Just the original brittle ones and then some slightly softer ones?

I rebuilt my shocks last night with the lsoi bladders but without the foam bushing above the bladder. They feel much better without the foam bushing, not sure what the point of those are..

Thank you guys those for the part number on those Losi bladders. They make a huge difference. I also drilled a .5 mm hole in the shock cap that seems to take out that last bit of preload I was looking for to make these shocks neutral.

I have mount cso t4 aftermarket shocks, just to try. Mainly because, I like to try different springs, hobao gives only 3 different options and that is quite narrow range of springs.

What kind of pistons u guys r running? I have tested everything on width range, 6x1.2mm to 3x1.0mm, mostly I have used ht300 oil.

On finger test, 6x1.1mm pistons gives quite equal feeling with xray t4 shocks 4x1.1 pistons.

Hobao springs is something like Gra 2.5 - Whi 2.8 - Gre 3.2 comp. on xray springs. Has someone do some precise test with shock spring scale?

At here we r running mainly on carpet, low to high grip. I have allways same results, on low traction tracks car is working good, Im allways bit strugling on high traction tracks. Hows with u guys?
