Might be that:
The hub isent seated properly.
The CVD's have threadlock in them.
You dident seat the tires correctly.

These are all things that bhave happend to me, i dunno if its your problem, i think the plastic hubs would absorb more vibes, and are lighter than anything else, dunno for shure though, good luck.

Sturla.....is the vibration only at max steering throw or is it all the time? If its at max steering throw you have too much throw in the car. Something that alot of guys do is glue a gold washer or two on the backside of the steering knuckle to limit the amount of throw and stop the vibration. If you look at the knuckle there is like a little nub that hits the castor block and on this nub is where you would glue a washer or two to help with the vibration. Other then that I would check to make sure everything is seated properly and none of the CVD's or your wheels are bent.

just wondering what color was the 128 tooth spur. i cant find any 64 pitch gears on the losi website. does losi make 64 pitch or do i have to buy a spur gear adapter and regular 64 pitch gears?

I will be running on carpet and used the set-up sheets on the losi site as a guide for what springs, oil ect to purchase. My question is besides the obvious set-up items are there any "must haves" that I should get?

Thanks for the help
Matt
my personal must have, is the clear upper bumper brace from losi and/or the BRP front bumper
