Try twisting the pins and see if they move at all . If not you will need to spray some wd-40 or and penetrating lube .

I was moving but just a little bit. I finally got it out. I ended up slamming 1 of my hex wrenches on the floor and I finally got 1 out.

I use a set of "end cutting pliers" to grab the slot on the hinge pins where the e-clips go...

Your going straight problem may also have to do with the heavy suspension you are using in the front of your truck.. and maybe the straight on the track itself.. if the clay is anything like the old SoCal track then it could be just as nasty as that was.. it wasnt really flat..

When I was marshalling I was walking the straight and it seemed pretty flat. Everybody else was just going soo striahgt on the straighaway and I couldnt find out why mine couldnt. They just dug up ocrc and put in a new track layout, but left the straight. grr

Just out of curiosity... You don't dunk your front tires to wash them do you?

My nephew years ago had a similar problem and he had water in the foam inserts! lol.. tires out of balance big time!

Well when I got bcak from the track I took a toothbrush and scrubbed the outside of the tires with water only on the toothbrush. Do you know if tracks have tire balancers?

I`ve never seen any at tracks . You will need a prop balancer .

We talked about this in the secrets to R/C thread .

I dont think I can spend that much. I still owe $20 for my gtx esc, and then $50 for a couple motors I bought, and my order on losipartshouse.com is about $60.

All of yall need to get a clue! Chris is playing you all like suckers. The joke is on yall. Has anyone not figured this out yet? I know everyone thinks theyre helping out this poor little naive kid, but thats not the case. Think about it, its not that difficult...

What are you talking about? What isnt that difficult? I was asked if I ever dunked my tires in water and my response was no, well except the time where I got the glue off my tires by boiling them, but that was for another pair.

If you want to see poor little kids that dont know anything and everybody bash's go on the rcuniverse forum.

Why would someone act like they don`t know what they are doing ? What is he gaining by having us explain things to him ?

He supposedly is a seven year old kid , most kids you need to repeat stuff to .
