Question for you guys:

I'm putting together my kit and wanted to make sure I wasn't making a mistake. I was building the rear diff and I see that there are parts (snap ring, thrust washer and washers) included in the kit. When I looked at the diff, it looks like these parts are already installed? I don't need to remove these and install the ones from the kit do I?

Also, are you guys cleaning out the bearings and lubing them with light oil right from the kit before installing? Speaking of the bearings, the manaul doesn't really show this but, do the bearings ride on the machined bosses on the outdrives? If so, is it typical that I would need to do some "fine tuning" to get them to fit without forcing them on?

Thanks in avance

Thanks for your suggestion but I have already read the blue printing articles. They don't really cover my questions though.

you need to pull the clip and put some black grease on the thrust washer

did anyone have problems with the front ride height with a standard shock tower???

my mate put his together as per manual but he cant get any adjustment as far as the collars are all the way up and the ride height is still around the 6mm-7mm mark...

do you have to modify the shocks like you do with the lower tower or did everyone just change the standard retainer at the bottom???

which is the best retainer as tc4 are sloppy and loose!!!

anyone tried hpi pro 4/cyclone ones???

also what shock length is best????
thankyou

p.s couldnt corally just make lower retainers???

ERTRACHTER - Thank you.

But what about the bearings fit on the outdrives?

I guess I might as well clean and re-oil the bearings since I will be eventually anyway.

Okay, I figured out my bearing problem, which isn't actually a problem. The bearings for the one-way and the diff/spool are different sizes. Since my kit came with the one-way, the bearings were larger. Doh!!

Looks like another trip to the LHS for me.

Oh yeah, for the center steering, per the instructions, the needed turnbuckles are 44mm. Also, are you guys using the recommended steering post (PN#79250) or are you sanding/grinding a little off the one that comes with the kit (PN#79251)?

EDIT: Attached PDF of center steering instructions.

Thanks

Something is not put together correctly then. You do not have to modify anything to get the clearance. Make sure the shock eyelet is threaded all the way up and the shock perch is pushed down. Check the droop screw clearance as well.

The latest kits have black grease in the thrusts now. You can remove them if you want to make sure everything is smooth. Just don't mix up the order of the thrust washers as one is smaller than the other.

The bearings don't need to be sprayed out and relubed. They are super free and spin great out of the box. The outdrives do ride on the bearings that are pushed into the bearing holders. The fit is sometimes snug, if they are super tight you may have to check the fit of the bearing holders into the bulkheads for tightness as well.

Jeff

I bet if you looked you'd see that the droop screws are screwed down too much. Or like Jeff said make sure the shocks eyelets are cranked
