If you have advice on BB setup for very high traction astro track, I am very interested in :-)
Why would you drill them any bigger. I already use the smallest hole pistons and they are almost to big.

In Europe on very high traction carpet or Astro, we don't need pack at all, that's why we are using most of the time, less hole, but bigger, like 2 holes 1.7mm for the rear shocks, and 2x1.8 for the front...

If you have a good setup with the 6 holes pistons for this kind of track, I would test them !

I have a 410r ordered along with some extras. What springs are popular. I will be racing on an outdoor fairly packed clay surface with small to med. sized jumps.
Thanks,
Beau

They work great. I've yet to bend one. Nitride coated also

Is this typical?
Please make sure you're not trying to seat the ball stud balls. The suspension pivot balls have NO threads and have a raised lip on one side. They should slide right in, no hammer!

Curious, how easy should those balls go in/out of the retaining sockets?

Wondering if I should polish the retaining bar or the ball heads..

Yeah, of the 8 ball pivots, 7 of them don't fit into the forward suspension stay holder thing. I'm going back to the LHS today.


Thanks again,

You should be able to easily push them in with your finger.

Has anyone else had the problem where the pin to hold the front wheel hex won't go into the hole in the axle because the hex won't sit down enough. I only have half a hole showing and the hex is fully pushed down snug up against the bearing.

have you checked that your axle bearings are seated fully?.. sometimes its hard to tell by eye, but that .5mm makes all the difference..

That's a problem with the coating on the aluminum holders. I know over on the descr thread guys are using a dremel to remove some of the coating on the hinge pin retainer and they then go in fine.

Yes. Boths side are seated in well. Both bearings are sitting flush with the hub.
I also have found that the rear pin is very loose when inserted into the axle hole. Gone from one extreme to the other.

Had the same problem on the 2009 spec. Had to sand them down. Not fun, but you do it once.

The part I am having problem with is 310032. Do you really need it in there anyway? I have fitted the pin no worries without it.

You'll damage the bearings when tightening the wheels without it.

You can get away without it but understand that you must pay attention to not over load the bearings side load.

Maybe you have the axles swapped from the front to the rear. They are different part #'s.
