Default RC8B Build question


I have a question if some one can help that would be grate.

I just got my RC8B built. I just need to put in the engine. So b4 i do this i was seeing if it rolls good on the floor. But it seems to feel like the front of the car is sticking in one spot. There is a click you can hear when you push it.
Is this the norm? Or if not is there any idea on what it might be and how i can fix it?

I was thinking its caus it all new. but i dont want to move on till i am sure.

thanks for your time.

the "click" could be a brake pad hanging on the disk, then releasing as the car rolls free again. Take the top of the center bulkhead off so the pads are out of the way and roll the car slowly, and see if it still clicks.

If that's not it, most people do not run the set screws in the center CVA, and just CA glue the retainer ring in place, the set screw can cause a bind in the CVA where it goes into the input cup.

Take out your front shocks and see if they are sticking at any point when you compress them. next check a arms make sure they are moving smoothly.
