Speaking of ball ends ProTek R/C makes a nice little tool for poping the ball ends in and out with little effort and also it is a complete shock tool as well. Check it out it works great.

should also mention inside and outside the gearbox casing

Last time I heard of fuel tank issues was when the str first came out. People were busting those tanks like crazy. But that was a long time ago.

Well, at least they know an awesome product when they see it. Product you linked is actually a rebranded set of Arrowmax Shock Shaft Clamping Pliers. I've had the original Arrowmax product for about 2 years or a bit less and it's by far the best set of shock shaft pliers currently available from any brand, at any price, IMHO. And the Arrowmax part is even cheaper and looks SO MUCH better, all anodized purple.

Anyhoo, can't go wrong if purchasing the Arrowmax or ProTek version of this absolutely 100% necessary tool for everyone who does any form of shock maintenance.

i like to chuck up the ball end in a vice and use a wrench on the turnbuckle. really makes it a piece of cake.. if you dont have access to a vice vicegrips will do the job.. just dont over tighten the plastic in either of them. if its still hard to get the threads started heat up the plastic a little bit

Thanks for the advice on tightening the rod ends etc. Heating and then using the vice grip with a wrench made that a lot easier. Next question relating to the doffs. Rear and Middle seem silky smooth, but the front seems a little tight, and a little clunky when I am spinning it manually. Do I need to rebuild it, or should I just continue building and run the buggy in and then assess then situation from there?

If its just slightly hanging then it would probably be smooth after break in. But if it is real notchy, clunky or hard to turn you need to reshim the diff until it is tight with no binding.

personally i would run it in with a drill before i went through the trouble of bolting it all up. then u still have a easy option of the reshim.. besides if it runs in this way you can clean up any debris that are left over. clean parts last longer

Guys, in Eliott Boots's setup sheet from 2012 Worlds what are the units he uses on the silicone oils? And what are the units used by Kyosho on their own oils?

Cheers

worlds set up sheet and most other sheets he's using losi oils for the worlds 45FR 35RR Losi oil is measured in wgt where as Kyosho oil is in CST or CPS depending on where you come from, generally speaking over here in the UK when Elliott is running 40/30 losi oils those running Kyosho oils are on 600/400, hope that helps
