ijnek, mount the front arms furthest forward, use your EPA's accordingly and that's about all you can do for it. The stock CVD's are the same as the losi aluminum ones so either way there's gonna be binding with both. There's also talk about this issue on the trinty board, it's the "locked front diff" thread in electric racing.

Excuse me, they won't wear more, they will slip more(on-power) and while braking with a mod.

Just run the car.

Due to the way the arms are swept, the various driveshaft agles, etc....there is is harmonic vibration when the wheel are allowed to free spin with no load.

ijnek- you might want to check the pins in your CVD's. i had a problem with my xxx-s before. i heard an anoying sound whl racing. after a couple of test runs tryng to isolate the problem i found out that the pin that holds the CVDs together was out of place. just a lil adjustment will do do the trick.

Is the yellow belt given when the graphite kit is bought, because I cannot see it in anywhere?

Thanx. I don't know if they are from speed tech because Steve doesn't make castor blocks (correct me if I am wrong). They were packaged usein Losi header cards with the lower portian cut off (the part that would normally have the part # and name). Here is the link to that auction: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...771099273&rd=1
