Default Team Losi 8ight T front universal question

I was wondering if anyone has a quick fix for my problem.

The front universals keep falling out of the front diff. The only way to keep them in I have to raise the front up with the downstops. but I lose 1/4 to 1/2 inch of front suspension.

Is there another way to fix this and not lose full suspension travel.


Thanks Scott

I've never had that problem with my 8ight-t.

How old are your universals? Have you tried brand new ones?

Is your droop set too large? Check your shock ends, the only time I have seen the front universal come out is when a shock end has broken.
