Guy's

I wonder if any of you can help me.

Have any of you had your front cvd just fall apart? I was racing and more than once the pin's have fallen out even with the shrink wrap over the ends. causing the car to only be driven with three wheels and spin out.

Any help to fix this problem or tell me what is causing it would be appreciated.

Thanks

Sam

Check that the shrink tubing is not rubbing on the inside of the caster block at full steering throw. Check Team Losi under the "Tips" section on how to remove material from the block to prevent this. Also, the black shrink tubing on the older LCD's is thicker and more prone to moving. New clear tubing is provided with the LCD re-build kit and is thinner. You can also go down to your local electronics store and purchase tubing. More than likely, it will be thinner material than what was originally provided in the kits.

Anyone still looking for the aluminum battery can find it at Larry's Performance R/C phone number 586-997-4840. Looked like they had 4 in stock.

Thanks Todd. I meant to come see you...I got there super late(work and then traffic)and was thrashing to get ready for practice Thursday morning. Found a good setup then didn't want to change anything on the car.

The only problem is that I think I would be low man on the totem pole. That mean to travel with the team involves riding in the back of the truck!!!!! I don't even know if EA has a camper on it or not so I may wait till the spring.
