The right side works great... Help??

My guess is the Hub is stripped but i could be wrong.

Hey guys, I bought a new left Knuckle and put brand new screws. Also i did not apply ANY lock tight and i am STILL having the same problem!! I am really lost here. The right side works fine btw.

Check all your hinge pins. Make sure everything is all lined up.

on c-hub its a good idea to use as long a screw as you can to go through the hub and all the way into the knuckle. also be sure to use a washer under the screw head jic. careful, if the screw is too long it may hit the cvd.

Take the cvd out and see if it pivots ok. Itís easy to get loctite in the pivot points when you apply it to the knuckle screw. If not, try running less droop. Make sure that youíre not putting stress on your shock cap by running too much droop.
Also, make sure your servo saver nut isnít rubbing on the post. It will come loose and work its way up and start rubbing on the steering post. Set it where you like it, then put a dab of loctight on it...
Let me know if that helps. If not, you need to just take one thing loose at a time and see what is binding.

Iím pretty sure the Nanda Sliver springs are the same as TQ White Springs, also I have heard some folks using Kyosho Blue Springs. Someone else might what to chime in and confirm this.

I still use the stock silver springs on my buggy. I have heard of some guys trying Ofna springs though.

Brian, are you going to make it this Sunday? The race starts at 1:00. The tempts is going to be in the middle 50s so I wouldn't come too early if I were you. The track is the same so all you would need to do is run a tank to practice. If you do come I want to take the buggy for a spin.

Hey guys, I've installed a set of TQ shocks on my Kyosho ST-RR Truggy, but I'm having a problem with the front arms. To get them to a level position, I've had to adjust the pre-load collars all the way down and this just doesn't seem right to me. I'm using 50wt oil with the blue(hard) Jammin springs. Any ideas as to what might be wrong here??? I appreciate any help, thanks!!

Thats great Luther! Chill Will is another driver in the area you need to take a look at. He is one of the top truggy drivers in the area and would be a great addition to the team.

Yeah Brian, I can introduce you to Richard Douglas and Doc. Pretty cool guys and 10 years ago Richard helped me a ton get going. You need to focus on racing in central Alabama with us if you want to put that sx8 in the limelight and really push it to the community. I know it's a drive but you can stay with me. I'm 15 minutes from nitro fever, 40 minutes from the snakepit, 45-5o minutes from Madmaxx, and about 1 hour and 15 from tbirds.

Your kinda out of the loop up north with most of the fastest guys being south. Since luther is loading the state up with sx8 drivers I'm going to work extra hard making sure the "belt" stays with the losi camp

It will be fun. You off any weekdays? We can go practice solo.....

let me know

Ohhh I will be down there a ton next year. With me just moving here and all we have been very buisy this year. I am sure I will take you up on your offer to stay at your place while racing down there.

Just keep that Losi stuff far away from me.

Nate said he was going to try have 1 more race this year, keep your ears open.
