Like has been said, to get those out, you have to remove the grub screws on the OTHER side (where the wheel attaches), and they'll pull out that way... AFTER they are unscrewed from the arms.

You need to unscrew the two pillow balls then thread them back into new arms.

Just unscrew the pivot balls from the arm with a hex driver. You'll know if you're doing it right because you'll feel a fair bit of resistance when you attempt to turn the driver.

It's really not that hard.

Hey Mugenman, take the front bumper off
to get at the hing pin. Also I think that the
pivot ball hexes may be plugged with dirt.
You can clean them out with some spray
cleaner and toothpicks.

why? whats the big deal? nearest track is 1 hr away, and thats not even that big of a deal, like once a month race.

nearest after that is 3 hrs or i have to go south, across the border, maybe in montana or the states or something.


bashing is a lot of fun... i take it anywhere, front street, back gravel roads, open field, wal mart parking lot. etc


ps: i figured my problem out, i should have looked it a bit closer. it wasnt a 4mm hex, it was actually a 2mm one.
