on the front;
- swaybar would help inital turn in / smooth it out = not so twitchy
- camberlinks are very important; are you running stock locations? ive found going up one hole allow the car to hold better/tighter lines = holds the line in & out of the corner.

rear';
-with you current setup, your rearend maybe push the car straight.
- try moving your rear shock 1-in on the arms (3hole for in) = not so machanical grip
- try #2 toe in. = not so much rear traction

are you running a diff, oneway, or spool in the front?

Default broken drivepins

Hi,

i keep on sanpping the pins that attach the axel to the dogbone when i am runing a spool. i must of gone through about 15 of the pins. it always seems to be the front right wheel everytime, i hav tried replacing the axles and theactual dogone but cant stop it.

i only race 27t indoors and yes i do crash and it does break then sometimesm but others it just randomly breaks?

i hav just been trying it on the road outside my house where it has randomly snapped today, but today it didny and i was going for about 20minutes so i am confused with what could be causing it?

is it that the bin grub screw holding the pin in place comes undone slightly so the pin moves along and so the pin is snapped becuase there is more force over the little area? is there anything i can do to stop this if it is?

or is there something that i have missed?

many thanks
A Gower

put a little blue thread lock on the grub screw before reinstalling them and if you don't have any good wrenches, get some, they help a slot too. I have found that running a spool or oneway all ways tears up the drive train in the front end.

1.5mm for grub screw

pinion, here in the US most are 1/16" or .050" (but i believe 1.5mm come with the kit)...

if your going to work on this car, you need 2 or 3 quality wrenches 2mm / 1.5mm / pinion wrench (1/16")

if it doest fit, dont force it... i know i goes agains all male intuition; but attention to detail is why some finish races and some keep breaking.
