I noticed my right front suspension was binding too. It ended up being the actual hub carrier screws being too tight.

Yes, he is. I'm using his setup as a base for my astroturf setup.

My front hubs were were pretty tight too. I backed them out a couple turns but am hoping it loosens up more after running it.

Any advice, before I start breaking the front end back down?
Thanks,
Chad

So I think I found the problem. There are two screws on each side, front and back on the wheel side of the suspension where it connects the arm to the wheel hub. I loosened those screws on each side and that loosened the suspension to be free.

Does the new gear diff fit in the 22 4.0 gear case?

Its a good idea to check for free movement of the suspension every time the shocks are off

Just ordered an elite kit, gonna be running 17.5. Some how got on trinityís site and got an x-factor that was in stock lol. Iíll build it like it is, then probably get some transmission ceramics and the cut gears.

I went ahead and picked up a brass c block and several different AE v1 springs to get me going.

Iím stoked, this is my first Losi 2 wheel after having every associated 2wheel b4-b6.1.

Unless Iím mistaken, you just use the ones that come stock in the SR 5.0 kit.

Hello i just picked up one of these kits.
Is the gear diff offered for this plastic? Will there be a metal option? Will the older gear diff work in the 5.0 elite case?
Thanks guys
