Clicking noise is most likely debree caught in the spur gear or the pinion gear. Just pop it out with your fingernail or a tweezers. As for the tracking streight, pretty much not gonna happen with the stock setup. I recommend some ajustable turnbucles, and give it a couple degrees of toe out. That will allow it to track streight.

Good Luck

the clicking noise is most likely the dogbones if you lost the springs in the outdrives. We fought this for 2 race days until I discovered that the foam chip I used to replace the spring had packed into the outdrive.

The dogbone rides inward and ticks as is tries to slip in the hub, If you lost the springs, you can use the front suspension springs off a 1/12 scale pan car, get the lightest ones you can find .

There is no "tranny" in any of the RC18's.

Not quite sure what you are asking, but it sort of sounds like you didn't get the rebound matched between the pair when you rebuilt and bled the shocks. They need to match. Otherwise I don't think you want to "shorten" them, but instead make sure they are filled and bled adequately.

I personally haven't had good luck setting the mambas, but they are very popular at our track. We run Tekin stuff in 1/10 scale and I find their hotwire interface much more user-friendly than the castle-link. for the extra $20 thats the way I'd go...
