we usually say that 1.75mm of shims should be added to the stack on the am23 for every 4 degrees of caster "added" to not have a major change in toe-in bump

After many years with Xray I decided to go for something more exotic and damanding.

Im getting the new A800x evo and i’m looking for a list of tuning and spare parts to get with the chassis. Also some special tools needed?

Will be driving on ets carpet this winter and later on low to medium bite asfalt.

Thangs!

Loctite for inner pins of IFJ and IRJ is the trick to hold the pins on place when the drives are out of the spool/diff outrives to prevent an accidental loss of pins. When the inner ends of dogbones with ST116 are inside of spool/diff outdrives the pins can't go out even without thread lock.

Certainly the Loctite sould be fully inside the hole of ST113/ST114 and shouldn't affect on the ST116 free swing.

What is the trick to put the front axle joints together? Using ST17 and P20? This step is about to make me throw the kit away
