Run the car a few times and then check the arms. If they are still binding, use a file to file a small amount of material off of where the hinge pin goes through the arm.

You must have something built wrong becasue I have never seen an xray bind anywhere.

Thanks for the helpful tips L.Fairtrace, but i think he was already aware that something was wrong... thats why he asked the question.

Phenicoulus... Chances are the arm just needs to be filed or dremeled down a little bit. I also use a oversized reamer (3.05MM) on all the arms to make sure that the hingepins arent causing the problem. When I tighten up the arm mounts I always pull the arm towards the mount to help get everything lined up better.

The binding is caused by the suspension pin mounts twisting when you tighten up the screws that hold them to the bulkhead. If you put your finger nail between the arm and the mount when you tighten the screw it will keep it from twisting up against the arm and it will move freely then.

loosen both front and rear ends then dip each end of the rod in shock oil wipe most off but leave some and then put both ends in and tighten each end slowly a bit at each end to keep the rod straight

to create roon for my electonics i shaved off a part of the antenna mount just enough to create room but not too much that it would make the mount useless.

I tossed the xray antenna mount, too big, I am using an old assiciated antenna holder that is much slimmer...


Now all my electronics fit flat on the chassis with clean wiring.

Thanks guys for the advice. I'll put all your tips to practice to hopefully remove the binding. I'm pretty sure the binding is from the suspension pin and the a arm as it's a very tight fit and needs a bit of force to push the pin through it.

The GTX comes with a plastic U type clip [_____] (looks something like that) and that slids over the 5 pin plug. Attach the capacitor with two thin cable ties to that. I have yet to experience any problems with this set up.
