I used MIP CVD red grease. Should I wash that out and use black grease?

Hey guys, I ran carpet for the first time. Used the box stock setup with;
30wt
2 front piston
3 rear piston
6* caster
5mm front downstop
4mm rear downstop
1mm under front camber link
2mm under rear camber link
2* rear toe in
1/2* front toe out
3 hole in servo saver
All the screw in the chassis but the alum stand posts
5mm reight height
Paragon

My problem is that I am biteing into the carpet really hard, im a hemi down the straight but in the corners you can see the front of the car biteing and the front seems to roll into the corner. I am running 57mm tires, XX PINK/ORANGE in front and PURPLE in the rear. What do I need to do to free up the car?

THANKS!

(Also noticed the rear tires are wearing very quickly while the front didnt seem to wear?)

Try changing the rear tires first; either XX pink or Magenta.

Just put a dab of oil on the cvd coupling every time you hear the 'chatter' and you won't have to worry about it.

TMcKinney711,

It sounds like your track has a lot of grip. How much of the front tires are you saucing? You might want to try saucing either half or only a quarter width of the inside on the fronts. If that or Andy's suggestion doesn't work, purple/orange fronts might be the ticket.

Do you notice it when driving the car? Does the grinding get worse as you steer more?
If you cleaned out your CVDs and have checked that they are smooth with your hands then it might be normal wheel chatter that is present in most cars.

Have you checked all of your wheel bearings? I had a wheel bearing cease up the second time i drove the car, I no longer run the xray bearings that came with car because of this.
Do you notice it when your driving?

In the search for something that improves Korey's asphalt setup, I changed the steering to lowest possible ackerman (bellcrank in the forward position, and bellcrank in the longest position). I really liked the improvement. It gave me more steering and steering feel in the slow corners. I'm pretty sure that this setting has both front tires operating at better slip angles for increased steering.

I also moved the upper shock mount out by one hole in the rear. This was an old change, though, so I don't have comments on it.

Guys I have a bit of an issue with my freshly built, unrun T2 '007...

My front CV Joints seems to be chattering. In one spot when the pin is horizontal there is no noise but as soon as the wheels are turning or turned to a different point, the CV's make a "cracking" sound made even worse when the wheels are angled (turned) whether it be slightly or full lock..

I have tried loosening off the grub screw slightly as well as making sure all internals are rotating ultra smooth.

Has anyone else had this issue and how on earth do I get rid of it?????

its doing it both sides as well... its definitely in the CVD joints, like they are not rotating correctly at an angle or at different "hinge" points......

Thanks guys

I know when I put the cvd's together I got a tiny drop of locktite on the outer part which caused it to bind, took me forever to figure out what was causing it

Yeah I thought maybe that was the case, took the CVD's out, they are as free as possible, like free as free could be but as soon as I put them in the car, they "crack" as I said and make this really wierd noise and they move off centre slightly. Brand new, not bent or damaged, out of the box and assembled. Any XRAY guys willing to help here?????

Im experiencing the same EXACT thing. Brand new rebuild CVD's and they crack and make horrible noises like yours. I get no help from Xray or anyone. Im about to toss this TC in teh garbage and get a TC5. I wish I never bought this stupid Xray car. The parts are expensive and the car is plain ugly.

Maybe it would be OK if Xray woudl solve the chatter problem when turning. WTF
