Hey Ryan, can you put that into a PDF file so I can post it on the front page?

on the asphalt/cement probably yes, on the dirt, no. I put a CC 1410 system into my friends SC10 and that thing wheelied all the way down the street lol Just remember, wheelies are only cool in the street for your friends and neighbors, on track, it's slowing you down.

Its always my pleasure...thats the part I really enjoy. I got a lot of help when I was a kid and intend to pay it all back.

I would but the pdf was too big to attach and thats why I had to do that.

Just an FYI, when you go to break in the diff, you might want to first purchase the rear diff adj. tool. If you don't, you will have to pop off the ball cup connector, drop the drive shaft out of the diff cup to get into the nut to tighten up the rear diff between each break in cycle.

Buy the tool first and save yourself the hassle. Other than that the build was great and I can't wait to get some practice laps at the local track to see how this thing drives.

The build is the most fun and the test and tune in a close second, love to see what you can get out of a new vehicle.

Hi, my name is Ron and I'm an RC addict...............LOL!

So I know most people here in ca, don't run mid motor but is there anyone out there running it. Do you have any set ups? are you running weight in the rear. I'm kinda liking the mid motor, yea you loose a little forward bite but its shur hooked up the the infield.

No worries, I just put it on the first page with a link to the jpg file. when you click on it, it allows you to make it bigger so you can read it full size. Thanks!

I used my power drill and ran them in and out a few times, I use a bar of soap on the threads and they work great. But yea if you just put them on 1 time and dont lube them they will pop right off

you must be doing something wrong. Losi says to us that it might happen only in extreme situations.

Once you work them in and out a couple times the threads will loosen up and you will be able to adjust them without having them pop off.

I am curious if those having issues with the ball cups on the rack are hitting something when they pop off or are they popping off at random.
I race on a very rough surface with huge 1/8 scale size jumps and after 3 heats and a main I never had one pop off...I did not trim the ball cups either. I took a couple tumbles but nothing major, even hit a couple pipes with the front tires turned....just curious why some are having a real issue with this.

I had the same problem with my tlr22 buggy, with the ball cups popping off when trying to adj the caster,camber and toe. Took all the ball cups off and used bar soap on the threads and re-installed and have never had a problem since. With that being said, I must say that these ball cups, if there the same as the 22 are very durable, I've never had one pop off my tlr22 and without a servo saver that's pretty impressive.

Yeah building mine now. Trimmed the steering balls cups and they just pop right off while adjusting them. Nice.

Going to dig through my box tonigt for some captures links. Has anyone tried the link ends from the SCTE?
