Just completed the Ackerman mod on my DEX408. I like it, zero slop.

That's the bottom side of the Ackerman you have pictured correct? What size shim did you use OD?

Hi guys

I am currently doing a school project, reverse engineering 1/8 offroad car into solidworks.

I have to write a report on the product and i am conducting an online survey on 1/8 offroad car.

I will send the analysis of the survey to various manufacturer in the hope that they
will improved the 1/8 product based on your feedback.

I thank you all so much for your time. it will take roughly 5 minutes of your time.

below is the link to the survey

surveymonkey.com/s/QD3ZQSW

add the triple w before the surveymonkey

thank you
jp

"our" vs "other brands" leaves room for speculative formulations after completing the survey, and quite frankly, as it is right now i wouldn't fill that form out. It's not in my best interest.

Correct. I found some in my pit box but from others who've posted, you can use Kyosho KYO96641. I have two shims on the top, and one on the bottom, each side, I'd estimate the 0.1mm shims.

I guess what I'm trying to figure out is, if they are using shims to cover the entire bearing or just the inner race of the bearing. I would think just the inner part of the bearing to keep it moving freely????

yeah the two on top of the bearing and one below keep it moving freely.

Please do use shims that cover the whole thing. Don't forget to tighten down properly, and then tell us how well it turns.
Yeah, i'm mean, sorry. Of course, it's just the inner race that should be in contact with the shim.

Awesome! White buggy wings from TD are now available for both the dnx and dex. Dunno why it wasn't announced by TD, been waiting on these for a while now after seeing the factory drivers running them last season, getting sick of the black wing look

Thanks to the tobamiester for the heads up in the DEX408 thread!

Grabbed one of each

I run one. Not everyone lives somewhere they can race nitro year round. Winter = off season for most.
