Default Time to build!!!!

Question: what is the purpose of the RH threaded and LH threaded screws for the lower shock mounts??? I'm not used to that and forgot about that and may have stripped out a hole slightly when I needed to remove the front shocks last night. I guess I'll be ordering a new set of front arms to replace my possible screw up. Thanks

the screws on the arms with the LH threads tend to back out during running. using a LH screw prevents that.

Don't bother buying a new arm if all you did was strip out a shock screw hole. Having the L/R specific screws means that even with the hole stripped it will always being trying to thread into the arm. I've had mine so stripped I could just push them into the arm and they still stayed in.

Thanks. I went and looked and now I see the channel you speak of. Time to reroute the servo wire.

Servo wire has been rerouted. Should I apply a small Amount of blue loctite on the servo horn screw??

Just a heads up... The blue loctite that came with both my 2.0s didn't work at all. I had to redo all the screws with my own loctite.

I never use kit supplied loctite. I use TLR loctite.

Getting into off road, bought a new eb48 2.0. Is the base setup a great starting point? Will
be running on a large outdoor dirt track.
