Has the pin started to creep out of the cvd joint on the shaft?

Speaking of those damn Pins creeping out...mine are starting to. When I put locktite on the pin it got all into the cvd and locked it up, we had to brush and remove all the locktite and also sand the cvd a bit...

Any ideas on how to stop the pins from coming out easliy?

Grind a small flat on the pin where the set screw seats and lightly loctite (blue) the set screw, let dry and install. Hope this helps.

I've seen the same thing with 6d blocks in the past with running foams on both flowing and tight tracks. They usually cut a tighter line all the way through the corners.

take a bit of heat shrink and shrink it around the outer part of the drive shaft, that way the pin has no way to come out and it doesn;'t affect anything else. and when you need to rebuild you just cut the heat shrink and put a new one on when done. You never have to worry about your pin coming out again.

ok ok, so i c that there is aftermarket chassis out there, but not alot of feed back , So here is the question that hopefully gets answered, how are they workin' and are they a much improvement over the stock chassis for a 19t motor? ie Team Pickles, BMI (new so i doubt any feed back is out there yet, CRC top deck (non countersunk), etc. Please, I see alot of pics, and here guys runnin (snowbirds), but no word yet on the performance.

I've ran the BMI's on the previous T1s. There rock solid for foams. I even had great luck with them with rubber on carpet. No tweaking even after a hard it. The fiber patterns that Jason's CF uses a 0*-45*-90* vs. stock at 0*-90*. This means that it is capable of having a 99.5% return rate (if twisted, it will go back to it's original state). Stock chassic CF only has a 40%-50% return rate (may hold a tweak if twisted).

Jason also bevels his chassis's top and bottom edges at a 45* (not sure of the actual cut depth. Something like 0.1 I think). So you don't have to round the edges off. You can just CA and wrench. Battery slots are also perfectly cut to the latest battery size.

If he made the whole car, you can bet it would blow away any kit in quality and style.

I have just about had it with my FT TC4's steering and vague feel. I drove a really poorly setup T2 yesterday and its steering was so much better than what I am used to. Can anyone who has switched to a T2 from a TC4 post on here and tell me if you are happy and feel the car was worth it. The reasons that I am un happy with the TC4 are its vague steering feel and inconsistent handling. I have wrenched on the acr since November and cannot seem to find a setup that I am comfortable with and that gives good lap times.

In my opinion the T2 and Tc4 are two totally diffrent animals. You cant even compare them. The T2 is actually quality.
