Default front bumper

What are your guys thougth on the pros and con of Xray front bumpers. Small vs the large on. What is your choice? My friend who made the a main at stockton uses the large one, another friend says get rid of it and put the small one back on. I think he says it dosent transfer all the hit to the main chassis??????? Thanks for your guys input!!!!

I even put the chassis on a piece of glass and it still rocks. is that normal. if not what can i do. Second question, is there anything i should change now that on building the car . is there some pieces that should be changed. I don't want to do it the road. now that i have it all apart. need a little help. thank you

in regards to the chasis rocking, loosen all screws that may tweek the chassis, bulk heads, shock towers, top deck. ect place on flat surface and check again, then tighten bottoms chassis screws in an x pattern then shock towers in same way then the top deck, chassis could have tweeked when building it, if you hit the boards hard you may want to recheck as the 05 chassis had this problem.

Thanks Kerry, When i opened the kit the top and the sides that hold the diff were already on the chassis. when i put it on my set-up board it wasn't flat. Took everything off. Check the chassis it was flat didn't rock. Thanks. Is there anything i should know about assembling this. Anyway thanks for getting back

Before you ever run the car with the aluminum fron axles, I would buy a pair of spring steel front axles. The aluminum ones get mushroomed and you have to get a chainsaw and cut through the bearing and the hub just to replace anything. As for the chassis make sure there are no screws unthreaded on the bottom of the chassis. That might cause it to rock (it should not rock when everything is together correctly) I would also recomend the battery strap and a P-Dub bumper as necessities. Other than that file and seal the chassis and you should be good to go. Good Luck.

You dont need too saw the hub and bearing and axel in two pieces too get the axel out off the bearings.
I drove 2 months whit the alu axels whit 100% steering trow,when i had too remove the axel i filed the edge away untill i could remove the axel. It is not a plezant job and does take some time but its possible. 2 months later, i had to clean the bearings again and the axel came out without to much trouble,you just have to pull hard.

No Problem. I get my stuff from my lhs or from www.speedtechrc.com. I kinda was being sarcastic about goign through the bearing (I think I said chainsaw ) The spring steel axles are nive though. Especiall if you break between heats and need to get it apart ASAP.

Hi, when you set up the belt on the 05, do you set it up loose. Or you said it like the manual says. It seems to be a little tight. I move the black insert one click back on the front and it still seems a little tight. Is there some sort of a measurement up-and-down. help

My FK 05 is also my first car whit a belt. I have used the position that is in the manual and it works fine. When i put my rear diff in the midlle position i have to lose the rear belt one step.

@ andrew, i did not read it so good that i saw that you where using a chainsaw . Ofcours the springsteel axels are better and i ame also going to order them. Its just that when i bought my FK05 i did not want too spend another 30$.

Anyone selling there axels and alu rearhubs?
