Default Re: steering binding

I had this same problem, and it ended up beeing that little plastic cam that the bearing sits in, onthe top deck I hadn't puched it in all the way, make sure both the top and bottom ones are squished in all the way.

The servo saver is all the way in both the top and bottom bearing.
I thought I would try 2 thin shims & see if that prevented the top deck from bending over the bulkhead.

Anyone else notice this? I don't think I made any construction mistakes but it is always possible.
Like I said it is a slight binding and may not cause servo problems but I think it might wear out gears faster.

thx,

Default steering binding

You know I looked at that last night.
I checked to see if they were flush with the opposite side. I didn't however see if it was pushed it allllll the way on both top and bottom.
Thanks--- will check tonight.

No problem with functionality.. I just dont agree of Xray's decision to use up inventory of old parts that weren't designed to do this particular job (In this case, cutouts on the standoffs that were used to hold in cells of the 04 xrays). Call me a perfectionist, but as howie said, $40 buys a lot of tape, and this issue will probably cause me to sell this battery brace at my local track this weekend and use tape from now on. My .02 cents.

push really really REALLY hard on that one... it has to stick out quite a bit (about 1mm or so...) . You might have to use pliers. Had the same problem on mine and couldn't figure out why the heck the car tweaked and the steering binded. Use pliers if needed. There should be a tiny bitty bit of slop in the servo saver post once the part is fully sitting in the top deck...

Cheers,
Paul

This upsets me.

John
Won't you guys need those knockouts in the brace when the new cells come out?From what I understand,the cells are larger.

Are you suggesting that there is no need for the cutouts?

Why?

Can you post a picture, it might be easier to understand what you mean

Default Pinion Gears

So it looks like I need to purchase a 16t pinion gear?? I am almost done building the car and I need to get a pinion gear. I am a newb at this so go easy. I bought the Monster Stock Pro motor and I have the 84t spur gear that came with the kit. I will be racing on an ashpalt track that is sort of medium in layout 'slow/fast' - 'tight/flowing' type of track (it's just a mixture of things).

Should I get any other pinion gears or spur gears?

Would this be ok?

Ryan
