Sorry for all the questions but should I put a small amount of thread lock on the steering knuckle pivot screws?

Are you talking about the M5 kingpin screws? A little blue threadlock is okay as long as you don't get it into the portion of the pin that the steering blocks turn on. Once I got the proper sized driver, though, I never had one come loose, and quit using messy threadlock. Corally makes a nice one in the appropriate size.

all you need is a small drop of thread lock on the threads...that will lock the screws in place but will still offer free movement for the knuckle...

It is a 6mm wrench. Corally offers the tool.

Heard that the new arms are breaking just as easily as the old arms, just in a different place. Sounds like they need to beef up the area around inner hinge pins.

Ok guys, I need a good rubber tire carpet setup.
Rules
GT body, Viper, Vette ECT....
CS27 tires, any locked timing 19, no one-ways
The track is ozite, due to only being raced on once everyother week the traction is very low.

Thanks
Dayton

The lightened servo posts are dialed. :-D The color matches the bulkheads and everything else. Now, if only the battery bar standoffs and offset bulkhead matched.
