Default Turnbuckle ball cup assembly tool

I had found some O-rings from a place that had repair parts for air sprayers and similar equipment. Not sure if those kinds of places are common, or if I just got lucky that they had some similar in size. The silicone heli part ones from LYNX look nice, will have to order some to try.

Just saw a tool that Jake made for putting together turnbuckles that make the pain of holding the ball cups much easier on the fingers. Nice. Go to Speedzombi.com website and you can see one in action.

Interested, I have an A800. How much higher are the X bulkheads and what was the thinking here? I take it that also raises the suspension top links for any given shim setup?

Mark
The X bulkheads are 0.5mm taller. also the AM06WSL are 0.75mm taller than AM06W

So to get the same roll centre (roughly) I was running 0.5mm less shim on the bulkhead and 0.75mm less on the hub, but this doesn't factor in that the actual axle is sitting higher not just the camber link

Currently running a TC7.1 and have great results with it but the Awsomatix has always piqued my interest. A few locals are on the Serpent 4X bandwagon but getting parts kills that for me.

Where are the best places to get parts other than direct? Just want to get an idea how many options I'll have coming from Associated...

The USA team runs AE oil. Unless your looking to copy the tires + surface... I'd recommend you not worrying about MM oil

I'm not part of the team. Been using Muchmore oil for a few years now. Very smooth stuff.

I think Hanulecs point is that if you want to copy or use the USA team's setups your best bet is to buy the super cheap AE oil, the CST of MM and AE may be hundreds to thousands of points off. I'm too lazy to look though.

For asphalt, anyone run the carbon chassis with the alloy arms?

Yes! I always use the alloy arms. They are the most consistent for any condition for me.

Most guys in the US that I know run the carbon chassis, alu arms, and DL or DL-A brace. The Current carbon arms are very shallow for the lower ST03 ball, and (depending on the track boards) the hub can "pop" out of the arm too easily in a crash. The aluminum arms provide significantly more durability in this respect.

Gee beat me to it. lol

Do any of you guys use the new Arrowmax setup station? I need to rebuild the back linkages on my 800x and reset set the caster however my current gauges obscure the markings, as the notches on the setup station are very close to the axle. I'm hoping somebody more clever than me has a workaround. Can I use turnbuckle length measurements accurately enough to suffice? Alternatively, anybody know of a source for very short caster gauges? TIA.
