Ran the motor fwd today with the eccentric "1" bearing holder up front. Front belt tension was much better than before. Not running a bow string anymore. Running the eccentric "1" in the rear made the rear belt either a tad too tight, or too loose.

So far I like it.

Diff builds don't last forever, the will get dust an crap in them. When you put it back together did you clean the balls, sand the ring face, put new diff lube in? If you did, then you likely have crap down in the thrust assembly. There are some fine round tip needle nose pliers that will work in place of snap ring pliers. Nexus even features such a pair in there Xray tips section.

If you have one of those compasses they used in the old days when drafting was done manually, you can use that to take out the snap ring if you replace the lead with the spare needle point.

Servo problem:

So i just bought a brand new Futaba 9551 servo... but it doesn't fit in the car. The servo posts are about a millimiter to close together... can't even force it to go... Tips? tricks? did i get bunk holes in my chassis?

Cpt.

Did you try loosing the servo post screws? And then try to fit the servo.

oh yeah, of course.... nowhere close... the physical case of the 9551 is too big.. or the holes in the chassis are too close together.

Can you measure the size of the servo with a digital caliper to compere it with mines.

No issues here. I run the same servo. You have to run the rearward servo holes.

HHmm.. I see. I have a stack of older airtronics servos, and old futaba servos. All the futaba servos (including my new 9551) are 1mm wider than the airtronics. All the airtronics fit in like a glove, and none of the futabas fit. Running that rear hole will leave me with not enough room to run my receiver and ESC... bummer!! Id almost rather grind down the inside of the posts..

Thanks for the help there, appreciate it.

Cpt.
