how can you tell when they ware than ?
The pin in the center cvd's are smooth, no engraving or indentations and are just held in by the retainer rings. During regular maintenace when you check the pins you can tell when they are worn.

in the manuel though by looking at the picture it looks like a pin with a engrave in it .
look at it real close .

i know there isnt a set screw that holds it and just the pin.



its on page 8 bag D.

I know it looks like it but there isn't, its just smooth. Since there isn't a setscrew no reason for it. All of mine on both truggy and buggy are this way.

ok, thanks i did try the smooth pin that came in bag D and i lined up the cva cup with the axle stub and the pin is kind of hard to get in its the right one to ?

it will go though the cva cup but its hard to get though the coupler ?

If it was in bag D and fits in the coupler its correct. All the pins are smooth.

The pin will be tight. I still have to insert mine halfway then press them on the bench sometimes. If it's to long just grind it down a little, but I imagine it wouldn't be long enough to worry about...

LoL. More "missing" parts . Dude you got to stop saying AE forgot your parts cause you can't figure it out. Relax and think about what your doing. Surely while searching for the pin you THOUGHT you needed you ran accross the correct part.

I built and painted Four kits in a little over a week RC8T, RC8Be, SC10 and RC10 T4.1 and every part was present. the only issue i had was one bad bearing. The hardest thing that i had to do was pulling that rubber boot over the cvd bone. I had fun putting the kits together and im currently waiting on the SC10 4x4.

Yup it's a D8T tank,

I have one in mine now as well. The stock tanks were a little too hit or miss for me. I really wish the folks at Associated would correct that. The tank issue has been my only real issue with the truck. The rest has either been me, a setup issue, or both.
