Thanks so much for taking your time to help, brother. Really appreciated over here, I am sure I'll be back soon with more questions in the near future. 🤣👍

With those screws, tihgren them just enough to come on contact with the OD of the bearing. You don't want to hinder the bearing.

What are you guys running for clay loose track on the diffs? Is 5-7-3 too loose?

Also on the suspension inserts, 2U-2D for front and 6U-6D rear seem to be ok?
Thanks

Has anyone tried to fit the srx8 wishbones on the 811 2.1?

From looking at the manuals, it looks possible. Inner hinge pins are the same and outer are same on rears, also same length driveshafts .Just use the srx8 casters and steering block

On the V2 uprights SER600476, which is left and which is right? On the 2.2 pdf they say to use the right on the left side of the car and the left on the right.

600476 Upright buggy 1/8 V2 (2) NOTE: the upright v2-R must be used on the Left side of the car, and the upright v2-L on the right side of the car.
As these have no markings, which is which?

I also took measurements between the 811 vs SRX8 wishbones. I do not think they would work, unless you manage to file enough on the SRX8 to match the 811
















Sorry for the bad light on some of these pictures, but you can see the difference on the mounting points. Personally I do not think it is worth going through all that trouble in trying to make them fit.

The flatter side goes towards the front for the 2.2 . Has nothing to do with hub location, you're just moving the camber link forward so that it doesn't touch the shock

If it would stop raining during the weekend and rain during the week, I might be able to run the car!

Well I managed to drive the car on Sunday. YAY It was fun, running like a champ. Many crashes, no injuries. Any recommendations on clutch springs for clay low grip?


Does anyone have any 13T (non)vented clutches to off load? If so let me know, thank you
