Yes, I do have some slop as well. And it is the same slop you have. But try removing the tires. Then grab the hub and try to see if there is slop. My slop is coming from the upper linkage connection (ball cup wear) and also from the hub. It is normal wear and after hitting a few walls a couple times.

You should look at your steering with the radio and car on. Look how much play you have.

HAHAHAHAHA!!!! I LOVE THE PICTURE!!!

Hey man, I got better!! I rebuilt that differential and now it has a ton more steering! That was not my fault, I didn't think it was going to have that much of an impact!

With spool when you hit something your outdrives will take 100% of the force. Spool is unforgiven when you hit something unlike oneway or diff.

When you hit the wall or something your front wheels will try to stop but your car still have the energy and still want to move forward. Outdrive want to stay but the pulley want to move forward and that's bad.

I busted them many times myself

Well that is why you use those sleeves. I have a new spool assembled for the AVID. I will show you what I mean. But with this much steering that I have now, I may have to pop in the spool now. I am just worried about the drive cups.

RobiUSA did excellent work on getting these parts out ASAP. If people are worried about parts for this car, don't worry. James and the rest of the team at SK Motion are top notch.
