I have a LCG I'm looking to trade for a FK05 or preferably a RDX. The car was only ran on carpet for a few packs and is in excellent condition. Included are a fare amount of spares and hop ups. It also comes with everything to convert it to a cmg or sd ssg. If any one is interested please PM or Email me. I have pics. Later, Rob

Bit of a tip on the stripping screw thing, get some 'anti-seize copper grease' and spray a little on the end of the screw threads (the ones which go into the alum bits),this should make getting screws out alot easier

i am going to rebuild the diff while its all apart anyway, see if needs new balls etc.

hopefully it is just tweak..will let you know.
It might also be either a bent rear hinge pin or a bent screw that secures the rear hinge pin holders to the bulkheads.

one step ahead of you...me old man's got some 'copper slip'or something and he says it will stop them sticking (sounds like anti-seize copper grease)

Heres wut i did when i stipped those piece of crap silver screws that came in the kit. I had 5 of those striped screws so wut i did was i took my handy-dandy drill and i started drilling into the center of the screw ( with a bit the size of the screw head). I kept drillin until i saw a little of the black carbon fiber then just lightly start yanking on the part, the head will break off and tada no more stripped screw, then just take the part off and twist the rest of the screw off


In the unlikly matter that the screw gets stuck in the part i.e bulk head, take a small pilot bit and drill into it and take it out with a easy out

thats how i get my stripped screws

thing is, mid corner to exit...on power my backend will just come out...not as though it has oversteer or anything because it was fine until i got hit up the back end real hard.

i was thinking, maybe the jolt has damaged the thrust races..the diff feels fine but i don'tknow...

anyone have any ideas?
try loosening the diff a quarter turn. TRUST me on this if the thrust bearings are ok.


the 05 does not like a tight diff. I had to learn the hard way

thats not what I ment HPIPRO?? haha sorry had to laff. when the diff is to tight it likes to make the ass end come around. I chased set up for a long time with the same results (rear swinging out) then it hit me one day to check the diff I loosened it and all was better. the rear stays planted

okie doke, i will try that to when i rebuild it all...

hpipro321....to get out scrfews out we drilled a 2mm drill al the way down the middle of the screw (being careful to get it in the centre) and we used a 'stud extractor' which has opposite threads on, so as you tighten it, it loosens the screw and takes it out....you can get them for about 2/$2, not expensive but very handy.

The aluminum shock bodies have been discontinued from Xray.

They are working on a new shock design.
