Sorry not my car. Just the best example of a VBC with a transponder attached to a RX I could find!

I do not know this car at all, but I have seen this happen before. Not knowing how your double joint looks like, I can just point out that the pins must be aligned. So the small pins should point to the same direction and not cross wise, if you know what I mean. Otherwise they bind up...

It might be this:

They work really well and are ~1/3 the cost of the Xray.

Do you have the 5x8x3 bearings on the inner side of the steering block? Also you may want to put a .1 or .15 shim between the outer bearing and the axle pin. Also Mark sure your c hubs aren't on backwards. This would cause the dcj's to hit when turning.

bearings and c-hubs were good.

Has anyone else started running the active rear toe ?
We ran it this past weekend and it really makes a difference.
Rear of the car feels more predictable .
Anyone got any comments or tips
One thing I did notice is that the grub screw in the aluminium c hub does not
hold the hinge pin in very well

Question on droop setting. I used to race 1/12th and never really need to use droop gauges before, so Im not sure where to measure it on the D07.

Im guessing you measure the droop from the lowest part of the suspension on for both front and rear correct? So on the front, you measure from the outer most point of the arm and in the rear, you measure from the lowest point of the hub?

Please correct me if Im wrong

people measure droop one of three ways:

* center of the pin on the rear hub
* bottom of the rear arm right under the pin
* measured buy pulling up on the chassis w ride height gauge (measured the diff between ride height and the point where the wheels leave the surface).

I use a ride height gauge, with the gauge at right angles to the chassis measuring under the arms.

For the rear droop, the lowest part of the loop.
For the front droop, the rear part of the front arm where you can see the end of the pivot pin used for the c-hub and arm.
(Note The centre of the front arm is lower then the rear/front end of the arm as the c-hub can hang below the arm interfering with the height gauge.)

Hope this makes sense.
