Default First rebuild

I bought a roller and am going to start to put the rest of the parts in (engine, electronics etc).

I know to use blue loctite on all metal to metal pieces, I've watched some videos and talked it over with my lhs about changing diff oils and putting together the clutch assembly.

Any suggestions or things I really need to know that most people forget?

Thanks

What kind of car? It really depends on what kind of rebuild your doing if your doing a basic oil change or if your changing bearings, gears, screws, cvd pins etc.

Basic change:
Replace worn parts, clutch shoes (check bearings) and springs

Basic Plus:
(basic change)
Add oils- Diffs (replace seals and o rings) and shock (pistons and o rings)

You will eventually get to the point where you are changing diff rings, clutch bells, outdrives, hubs, shock springs and basically build a new car but from the sounds of it your just going for a drive through oil change.

It's a used jammin x1 truggy, I'm changing diff oils, adding elecs, engine! pipe.
I'm not doing the bearings and spurs as of now. I'm going to take the diffs apart, it is my first time, so it should be interesting.

Now that u mention it, I may replace the o rings in the diffs also.

That's the kind of advice I was looking for, what should I be checking. Ive watched a lot of utube vids...... Now I'm looking for some expert experience as to what the heck I'm doing

Put it back together the same way you took it apart and all should be good.
