when i apply loctite i hold the grub screw with my 1.5 Hex Driver then i have it just pointed up tilted forward a little then just sqeeze the bottle to u see the loctite starting to get near the top of the cap. then i sort of hold the bottle in 1 hand and my 1.5 with the grub in the other then u sorta point the tip of the bottle towards the screw and rotate your 1.5 and spin a fine ammount other the threads of the grub screw. Lol. i guess that sounds confusing ( it also helps to cut the tip of the bottle on a slight angle \

Thanks.
It would be a silver part, in its own little bag with a blue paper label marked 0.2mm.

I normally CA the outside edges only. It is mainly to prevent the CF delaminating in a bad crash. It would be pretty rare for that to happen on the inside edges.

Are they made by Atomic? I'd like to see an image of them in the car as I'm not sure how those things fit with the standard C-hubs. I know the Xray needs option C-hubs.

So... I m trying to fit the upper deck now.

Is there any way to get this thing on without having to shave it?

Edit: OK I did it. I loosened the screw at the front. The thing holding the front one way. Then I screwed the deck on (after taking a tiny bit off with a file) and then screwed the front back down.

Randy I'm almost certain Atomic makes them - ie the guys that make the VM2 4wd mini. But it's not on their website.

According to this website, manufacturer is Spec-R - http://www.egrracing.com/shop/specr-m-62.html. I think they must be closely connected to Atomic in some way since they are making these unis for their mini (but only 2 other cars) and is sold/distributed by companies that also sell a lot of Atomic products.
