Check the manual. I'm assuming that all bearings can be replaced.

Don't worry, I found the info already on the 414M thread. Needs to be boiled in water too in order for it to be removed (they're glued in very tight).
Are they pressed in or glued in? That's old school. Well if boiling worked for the others then I guess it's best to follow suit.

I see... It's what they call "assembly type" like how real car parts were before.

Notes: (my 2 cents)

1. Apply CA on the chipped chassis located on the underside to protect/repair

2. Adjust your shock collar to the minimum and with a silver paint pen, make a mark on the collar to be as a guide so you know how many turns you did when adjusting preload.

3. I would replace the O-rings on the dampers to prevent leakage. I'm assuming that they are as old as the dampers itself.

I think loctite is ok for that. I would recommend another brand if you were gluing your tires.

Your collars, just mark them with a paint pen so you know how many turns you did. Those collars are the old style and does not have any marks to serve as your guide.

The standard O-rings are ok. But if you want the TRF ones here: http://www.tqrcracing.com/shop/produ....asp?p_id=2152

I am not comfortable with stealth mounts. I would rather drill holes on my body - but that's me.

Be very careful in aligning your body to the chassis. Once you drill the holes that's it. I ruined a lot of bodies because of poor alignment.

Ya...I'm a little hesitant on dem magnet/velcro mounts.. doesn't seem too solid/rugged to me.
Dude, it's a waste of good money. That's only my opinion. So what else are your future plans for your car?

Have you got the electrics sorted out already?
