Superglue I use on wheel axles to keep the nuts from backing off. With Tamiya spoke rims loctite tends to ruin the plastic making the wheels throwaways.

To touch on the wheel nuts;

If you have lock-nuts backing off you need to replace the nuts, NOT use superglue

Also look into serrated nuts where you can use loc-tite, but more than likely you wont need it because the nut is serrated and will dig into the rim.

As juvenile as it sounds, keep your wheel nuts fresh...they cost like $3.00 for a new set, or buy them in bulk and keep them in your box.

Hi guys I have a 3racing conversion on my ta05 which is completely stock besides the chassis. I run a mamba max 7700 on a very big asphalt track. What would your suggestions on pinion-spur combos be, I am considering carbons shock towers f/r and some trf dampers. What would be some parts that would strenghten up my drivteain as I understand that the mamba does put stress on the divetrain.
Thanks for the help!

Try asking the people who make the power system as a start point, not the place the car is made.

Are your shocks threaded, if so then you just rotate the collar.

If they are spacer shocks, then add or remove the spacer clips

My shocks are not threaded and I have no spacers on the front shocks.......That's why it's wierd that the front is higher......But I just remembered I did use 3racing universals swing shafts on the front.....maybe that's why.......Sorry I will check that at lunch.

CVD's would not affect the ride height.

I never had the kit shocks on my TA05. Is it possible that the springs are specific to the front or rear? Did you install the shocks in the correct position? Were the shocks built too long?
