I used blue Loctite on the front deck/bell crank posts and it's been fine. Red is much too strong for this application, but if need be you clan heat the post with either a heat gun or blow torch to liquify the red Loctite and turn the screws out.

All is good until I get to a very tight S turn, then the apex happens and I go whipping around. Tires are typos which offer a lot of grip, and steering at my practice track. Need help getting the tail end to stay down. Tried Ryan Lutz Reedy Race setup, was not good for this layout in very tight sections. Any help would be appreciated. This is a new V4 buggy, running saddles in the rear with the chassis weight set trying to keep it stuck on the track.
Sounds like your car has too much roll. You need to use heavier oil to control the roll. Pistons control the pack. The smaller holes are good for big jumps, but not so great on bumpy stuff. It makes the car nervous.

I run 42wt with 2x1.6 front (same almost the ratio as your 5x.10) amd 30wt rear 2x1.7 (similar to your 6x1.0). Difference is the bigger holes are more forgiving. Also I use 1.3 front sway on big tracks, 1.1 on smaller tigbt tracks. 1.5mm sway in the rear.

just get the 2010 spec non fine tune towers, no? My 5mm tower is a tank, had a massive tumble down the strait last night, popped 2 or 3 tie rods, a shock eyelet and broke both front bulkheads. One cheap part from a massive wreak, I'll take it (100% my fault, I screwed up trying to pass a slow car on the strait, instead hit them hard at WOT)

Does anyone know the diameter of the inner rear hinge pins? Does anyone know of alternative inner rear hinge pins that can be used? I need a replacement but don't have one nor can I wait till my order comes in. I'm supposed to be racing tonight.

A few months ago I was in a pinch and all I had was a busload of Associated hinge pins which were too thick so I found a small tube I had in my garage and used a pumice bit on my Dremel set to the highest setting and hit the Associated pin at any angle that would force it to spin and push inward to the cylinder until I took the hinge pin down just enough that it slid into the A-arm firmly. From there I hit it with my metal bristle bits to smooth it out and polish it slightly and then went over it with a stripping bit and some Colegate to to make it smoother. I got through that weekend just fine and the damn thing was actually way stronger than the stock Durango pins.

they're 3mm in diameter, you might be able to find some 3mm drill rod locally

Most hudy and EDs hex drivers are 3mm so if you have a worn out tip on one just dremel it to size, for front and rear length just look in the manual
