Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thank you for your help.
too much loctite can be a bad thing as well.

Jesussaves: I had the same issue for a little, what i did was take the whole knuckle out and clean out the inserts with rubbing alcohol along with the screw and clean them up. i then reassembled them with blue loctite on the screw and since then i haven't had any issues. You can give it a try. just maybe the loctite isn't hearing to the surface?

This Saturday is our start of the Arizona Winter Series and i've gone over the buggy and i am very happy with the wear on it and cant wait to see how it does this weekend at The Nitro Pit. I must have a little over Four gallons now on the chassis and the only wear spot is in the rear witch is normal. Cant wait to get another gallon or so out of it and see how thin i can make it haha.

Thanks Will!

I TQed by 30 seconds and had engine probs in the main. RRRR

I think that I over did the air filter for the main and it made the engine run lean on top.

Car was awsome all day and there are a bunch of people that want SX8,s here now.

30 seconds? Jeez B, you should have came down and ran with us Most of the amain at the SIC showed up to battle it again. IT was crazy

Long drive for you though. When/if dan get's the xtreme back going with a good flow of entries I'll be back to race. It looks like a great place. He used to have 100-150 at that race.

But hey....if you got any of those guys wanting a rig(SX8) check this out:

http://www.carolinasrc.com/Webstore/...dproduct=10695

If ordered today, another 10% off! So about $385! I just got a couple things ordered up

Will, not you! lol...

What do you mean not me? ......
I know what you are talking about Alan but 2 servos in back to back weekends and one cost me the main. It's not looking good.

Well it's going to be hard to get his race back to that level when other races are scheduled over his and with all the tracks that are in Bama now everyone is staying close to home.

Yeah I hope there will be a bigger turnout in the coming years at the extreme but it was still a fun race. Brian's SX8 was on rails!!! I know I wouldn't have been anywhere close in the main if it wasn't for him having problems.
