Default the wheels on the buggy go round and round

okay guys,

i was out at the track the other day, and i took a rough landing with my b4. Now anyone with a b4 should know what im talking about. I cracked the rear hub carrier. I rebuilt it and i noticed that its a little wobbily sitting in the a-arm. the one on the other side that i didnt touch isnt really that bad and seems to fit a little snugger. When the pin is in that holds the bearing cover the slop isnt that bad, but i was just wondering if theres anyway to tighten that up? washers...etc?


okay thanks


tim

try checking your bearings, you might have to replace them. If not that, add more axle spacers.

It can be ablown bearing. Also try shimming up the rear hub as well. Just make sure it doesn't bind.

Sometimes the bearing will be slightly "loose" within the hub to where the bearing can fall out on its own if turned upside down. If this is the case, then take your Exacto and score the side of the hub where the bearing will rest. This will tighten it right up.
