Clean the grub screw and everything else with break cleaner and the put a set screw on both sides and use red locktight ( not the kit locktight )...

I don't know about that as the front tower snapped on the 3rd pack. Another thing is the composite shock towers are thicker and the ball studs dont thread all the way through (too short). The strip out so get some longer ones and use nuts to hold them in.

Swapped to the metal ones in. If you are looking to get rid of the carbon ones drop me a PM.

I'm just about done putting the car together but my shorty lipo pack doesn't fit. It runs into the battery door pin nubs on the motor mount and pinion hoop. I even have the exact battery I see pictured for some of those using shorties. Do I need to modify something to get a shorty pack to fit?

I run saddle packs but it never occurred to me that shorties fit in this thing.
Just googled it and low and behold, they do!

I'm sticking with saddles for now.

Crap, I just ordered the same packs for mine in hopes of running them. I had them before and they fit in my DESC410 though...

I'm new to this car. What are the benefits to running a shorty?

As long as the batteries are no taller than 25mm they should fit. I personally like the saddles because they have a little more weight than the shorty which the car seems to like IMO.

I heat shrunk the rear center drive shaft last night, it looks good but I hope it holds because the pin went thru the plastic pin retainer with now issues. This issue has cost me 1 saddle pack already.

They will poke through heat shrink too if the CVD lost its grease (dry joint)
