Default Question about the universals...

Hey guys, I recently picked up the SD. I put it all together, slapped on an old 540 to check fit and finish ran it at 2 volts, and I noticed that my right front end started to vibrate and bounce up and down. I took the end apart and checked the universal, bearings, etc. rebuilt that corner, and tested it again. It did the same thing, and now I notice that there is slight bow in the dogbone, but it should not be a problem right? Let me know. Thanks.

Wanted to get your thoughts on the Rear shock tower on the front. Did the mod today and look to race this next weekend. The car was good the first time with the stock tower but I am looking for some more agressive steering. Wanted to know what the car will feel like as you go to that upper set of camber holes on the tower (rear on front). And what does the lower row get you?

Trying to learn here at the bench...so I can get up to speed a little faster....lol

a shorter spring will feel more progressive while a longer spring will be more linear in it's feel. Since the car is relatively new everyone is still trying different things like the rear tower in front and now the longer springs to get the car how they want it.

just the shock cups and ends. Or you can use a ball cup and just thread the ball stud into the arm.

kool thanks. ANd then i assume build them to the lengths stated in the manual?

Im not sure if i will run this in stock rubber or 19T foam. Currently im doing very well in 19T with my tc3. This car is bought so i can race in both touring classes... Looks to me like many of you race outdoors with rubber.

The stock lengths in the manual should work, but it will be hard to get the front shocks that long using the AE ends.

Post Weird Vibration...

Hey all, I was wondering if anyone has had any weird "vibration" from universals. The reason why I am asking is that I recently got an SD, put it together, and doing the gear meshing, and checking for gear whine, and I noticed that my right front corner was bobbing up and down. I took it apart, checked everything, and even swapped dogbones from a different corner. But it is still there. Can anyone help? Thanks.

Default weird "vibration"

rc_bam226,

Did you swap the both bone and axle with the other front and the problem didn't move? Strange....

I noticed after I put my driveshafts together, the joints were tight with a little bit of binding. I was going to replace them with better ones later and just put them on. After I ran a couple of packs through them, I think they loosened up. I'm still going replace them once the Square ones become available in the U.S.

I'm a bit disapointed, all of the Tobee Craft parts I ordered from Rainbow Ten were out of stock, so I might end up using the Yokomo aluminum driveshafts, anyone have luck with them?
