Super soft tires you have to be careful not to rip the tire and take them out sooner.
Man ..Better put sum Salmon in there if your gonna be Baking..

I somehow lost the bushing in the front steering link. Would anyone know a part number or something equivalent I might be able to use here.

Looking up the part number LOSB2279 comes with a bunch of stuff I really don't need and seems to be back ordered?

Today will be the maiden voyage! In its previous config it weighed 4.94lbs w/no body or tires and it is noticeably lighter with the X-SCTE chassis...going to get it on a scale once I get to work.

use a hobby knife to remove the glue unlike the above picture

simple and easy foams dont really survive though but everything else is reusable



Baking/Boiling IS Imo not a wise idea to remove tires for the sheer fact that your left with Crusty Chunks of glue all over the tire. Acetone actually dissolves ALL the glue and is basically a New Clean tire again, Secondly you can save Any and ALL foams with the Acetone method. Also As stated a lot of the newer gen foams Will shrink/deform with heat so again Baking is the last thing you'll want to do if your trying to save the Foams as well. Downside to baking IMO is that it Rarely works as good as Acetone, Most of the time your dealing with a real Good Bond in some places and your left Knifing the rest of the tire off leaving Chunks of rubber behind again.

A buddy almost lost his this weekend too, luckily it was in his chassis. I don't understand how these back out though, it's threaded into plastic. I checked mine after it happened to him and both were tight. Now I'm gonna be obsessive and check it more often.

agreed! acetone IS the best way to remove tires.

Lost mine when I had the linkage apart to tighten the servo saver. Was just looking at some new front arms and it looks like they come with a bushing that looks simular (in the picture). Anyone know if they will work in the steering?

If you are referring to the bushing in the ackerman arm, those come with the ackerman arm pack. And you had the correct part number LOSB2279

Anyone have any tips for getting to the servo saver to tighten it? Looks like the whole steering assembly needs to be removed to get to it. Should have done this last time I had it torn down. Well at least I need to tear down the front to change the diff fluid anyway...

it's pretty easy to get to, just remove the front end by removing the 4 diff screws and a couple of screws for the front brace and steering posts, the whole front end comes out.

Im going to get it on the track @ Outback Raceway today and will be racing it Saturday. This is just a test mule, so Im going to wait to pass judgment until Ive put some time on it. Its going to be a busy weekend

They feel rock solid on the bench.

Not sure if this is what your after, but I did get a pic of the kickup plate/chassis joint
