The triangles face the knuckle. The longer bushings goes under the knuckle, which means the triangle will face upward into the knuckle. The shorter bushings go on top of the knuckle so the triangle will face downward into the knuckle.

yes, they have problems with the plastic nipple thing that holds the clunk, it leaks causing tuning headaches. when i ran HB, i had 5 tanks and non had that issue (even had a 6th one i ran on my OD team buggy), then my dad switched to HB and both of his tanks have had that issue, no big deal, just run fuel line straight through, problem solved, Losi or Venom fuel line is best.

I believe the numbers on the inserts may contradict the instructions going up or down, but you can tell which way they go, if you put them in wrong they just dont look right. Follow the instructions but if you can tell something isnt right about them dont worry think it through. Its not as hard as you are thinking it is.

ok, well il just follow what it shows on page 10 than with the number pointing up on what it shows the "blue one" shows with the flange down and the red one up but when i insert them ethier show with the flange on the right side with the way it shows the numbers pointing at ?


whats the diffrence really ?

it, does fit better with the opposite way it shows on the manuel but thats the way it shows so im just following what it shows even though they dont fit completely in .

the bottom sticks out a little bit.
