Hah, I just learned this recently after destroying one. You need "snap ring pliers" to remove that ring. Be mindful of the diameter of the little prongs (they need to fit in the holes on the ring) and the direction it opens, as some are used for removing rings from an outer clip rather than an inner clip. I found a decent pair at Ace Hardware that had multiple heads with multiple angles for removing all kinds of clips. Unfortunately, the prongs were a little large, so I had to sand them down. At any rate, you should be able to acquire this tool at any store that carries, well, tools.

You should use the tool syndr0me described, but I was cheap and just ground the tips of some body sissors down lol. Works pretty good actually.

Sushi Boy, I'm surprised you didn't grind down some chop sticks!

Default snap ring pliers

Harbor freight has a pair for 1.99 that are small and all you have to do is grind a little on the inside edge so they close a little smaller..

Are the new chassis 3300 compatible as well as being 3700 compatible?

Looks like I'll have to put in an order soon...

I figured

My concern was with cell movement; do 3300 cells move around excessively in a 3700 chassis?

I think it would be awesome if the threads in my Corally towel pulled out a little bit easier. I only lose about 15 per night right now, which is going to take forever to make that thing completely threadbare.

Not sure on the hauler bags....... hopefully at the end of the month. I'll double check with Rob.

The RPM ballcups seem to work pretty well, for those of you wanting to take some of the slop out of your linkages. Some of them are a little tight though, so hit them with a ball inside a dremel (careful not to bind them at all or they'll melt fast) and they loosen up very nicely.

The problem is the ball cups are a bit bulky, so you have to adjust your turnbuckle location, either moving them up or in. Changing (and limiting) the tuning options for the sake of better ball cups is probably not a great idea, but eliminating the slop is pretty nice.

At the very least, changing the parts involved with the steering assembly doesn't require any setup changes, and cleans it up a lot.

Just my $0.02 on the little experiment.
