At minimum the outer brace...balls support the hinge pin in the brace, must have those to run the aluminum braces.

Default CVD's binding?

Guys,

I have noticed that my front & rear CVDs bind a little bit. Not the center CVDs connected to the slipper but the ones that actually drive the wheels. I am under the impression that this is because the car is not broken in but does not seem right to me. I am not sure what else would cause this . . .

Is it possible that if I did not get the grub screw on the flat spot of the drive pin the CVD would bind? If I turn the spur by hand you can see the front & rear A-arms lift and then drop through and entire revolution of the spur. Talk about el weirdo!

Any ideas?!? Thanks,

- Danger

The reason for this is too much locktite floating around in the CVD - I had the same problem and had to rebuild the CVDs... Donīt try to break them in - you will kill your bearings ...

I have had this happen on previous builds because of too much lock tite as well on the cvd.

like the others have said.. too much threadlock. pull them apart, clean everything and rebuild them. I used grease during the assembly of mine and run them with a tiny bit of bicycle wax chain lube.
to make sure you've got it right, rotate the cvd at the most extreme angle to check for binding.
I also run my diff / pinion loose as well.

I think it is a great looking car, but I don't like the how open the drivetrain is.

Why ? It's nothing different to 1/8 nitro and again it's not belt driven so why you would need to do it differently

I just remember a buddy of mine that had the Tamiya 501x with the open drivetrain and things getting stuck in the pullies.

But belt drive has a lot more going on, plus with how the car is set-up makes it sooooo easy to work on being a 4wd...fours screws each and out the diffs come
