Tom,

I had the exact same, very frustrating, issue. A little bit of pressure on the nut-side should be sufficient to get the screw to bite. Because I had some issues with the nut loosening, I acutally ended up flipping the nut upside down in the little plastic mount, just to get the nyloc part to grip first.

Good luck,
dave.

Just wondering if anyone has had this problem or has a solution to it.

Thanks Tom

yes, using a different combination of blocks in the front (toe out) and the rear (toe in) will yield different toe angles. they are more durable than the plastic ones. the aluminum blocks are stronger and probably weighs about the same.

with madjack's setting he has 2 degrees of front toe out and 2.5 deg of rear toe in (plus the built in toe for his rear uprights (probably using 0 deg hubs though.)

madjack's block set up is based on satoshi's set up in the RCWorld mag.

Is there anywhere you can reference which each block is? Like Losi they will say 1 degree or 2 or so on. Is there some where that tells what each of the blocks are so you know which ones to use?

I had always wondered about that setting ! ...What if those blocks were what Mr Satoshi had with him at that moment and he threw them into the 05 and worked from there ! ....Without proper translation of the Japaness, there is alot lost from the Mag ....and we took it as bible !

Default 46mm Universal Problems

I just try putting my 46mm universals on in the rear and I have
ran into a slight lil prob. if you see the picture up here that I included
,you can see the axle doesn't come out far enough so that I can
stick the pin through the hole on the axle...
And I'm pretty much running stock everything, so can some please help me.

Also what size are those blue turnbuckles everyone is using for the upper
suspension arms that replace the 3 x 28 on TA-05?

Did you use the wrong wheel axle?

Can't quite tell form the pics but it looks like you have the LW outer axle shaft in the STD suspension hub. The easy way to tell is the LW has a rounded carrier for the CVD whereas the the STD axle has a more squared off profile.

I second that, looks like you've been wrongly directed. To use the 46mm bones in the standard suspension (not the LW) you'll need to get the normal axles ref 53499. The bones you have will fit in them no problem.
