A little Shoo Goo or super glue...should work just fine

They press on pretty tight so I don't do anything to keep them on. Just slide them on and your ready. If they are loose use a small dab of shoe goo to hold them on.

They will fit tight!!!!!!!

I have the Yokomo MR-4BC Super Dogfighter 2 Special and it came with them. The directions said to apply a small amount of CA into the hole when it is lined up on the diff.

The only downside is when I have had a hard hit and the arm broke, I always pulled them off and had to look for them in the dirt!!! Yokomo never had a number on the website for replacements until recently. I thought they might have been cheaper given the size.

Check out this link for the directions from Yokomo's website, see page 3.

Hi Dave,
i tried your setup today and i must say that the cornering speed is FAST!!! turns in nice and holds the line relatively well (with a slight push mid and exit on power) off power steering is excellent and really responsive.
I do have a question though, when you say med-tight diff, approximately how many turns out from fully tightened? initially i was 1/8th out but the rear end was too tail happy...right now i'm at approximately 5/8 of a turn out from full tight and it tamed the rear end by a lot but to tame it totally, it will bleed too much power away and loose corner speed. is there another way to tame the sliding rear end? there is this bastard of a corner where i race where at the end of the main straight there's this tight little chicane leading into a 180 degree hair pin where my car really, really hates and this is where i'm mainly having problems. it doesnt like high speed off power direction changes. A lot of other cars are having trouble with this corner too but i just want to show them how good this car is (to prove that this car "works") that's why i really want it to handle well and pass them on that particular corner
any insight would be tried and appreciated
cheers mate.

Great News.. Glad that I was able to help you get started...... now for the fun part... fine tweeking the set up to work better for you..
so you need a bit more mid to exit on power steering....hmmm... Here is what you should try out..
#1) put a .5mm shim under the rear arm rear sus-arm balls.(anti-squat)
or
#2) put a .5mm shim under the front balls on the front sus-arms(more caster)
or
#3) move the front shock lower mount position to the out most hole on the a-arm or 70%


try any of these and it should fix your mid to exit on power push

I'm getting my R3 Xenon Cuda ready for this weekend. I will put the servo in tonight and then wait for my new radio to arrive today or Thursday to finish it up. Still need to sweep the front a arms yet so I can get all the steering!!!!!!!!!!
