Hey. The universals will solve your problems, there's no way to lose them unless they break into pieces and I've never had that happen.

Get this for the rear shock tower: (You won't be sorry)

I only use them on the front. You shouldn't need them on the rear. If you put them on the front you'll have 1 spare remaining in case you lose another one, but with the upgraded rear shock tower and aluminum stabilizer mount I don't think you'll be breaking the rear and losing one again.

I've ordered from both shop.the-border and rcnutshobbies (sorry about botching the name above) and have had great service from both. If you're in a hurry I'd go with rcnutshobbies because theborder takes about 9-10 days shipping from the Netherlands, but I don't know if rcnutshobbies carries the kfactory rear pieces or not.

KMac's nickel's worth of free advice for the day:

I'd look into the G4 bearing set from dinball (on eBay) and also get a couple of spare thrust bearings for your Centax (not included in the dinball kit). You'll be sorry the day that bearing chews itself up and you don't have a spare.

what exactly is that thrust bearing? I ordered something from someone on ebay a while ago that was 6.99 they said it was a bearing but it looks more like a washer. Is that the right thing i ordered?

Rcnuts
can you get me a total on these parts:
K1462
and i need a battery for my dynomite glow charger. I don't know if you carry those but get me the cheapest nicad you have.

Thanks,
Mike

That is a bronze bushing. I've used those on my car as well and surprisingly they last about 5 times longer than the actual thrust bearing.

The true thrust bearing will have (2) outer pieces that look like flat washers and an inner piece which is the cage that carries the balls. It MUST be lubricated with a heavy grease frequently or it will burn up and chew itself up. It's the bearing that goes on the end of yur centax assembly, in front of the pinion gears.

what kind of grease? I don't have any heavy grease. I didn't get to run my car that much since it broke. I ordered the ball bearings kit from dinball and i ordered the rear shock tower aluminum thing with the C/F show towers. Still need to find a place to get the Universal shafts to replace the dog bones.

From what I hear, Mugen Super grease is the grease of choice for centax thrust bearings. You can use Associated black grease also, which is what I have been using on mine since I bought the kit. I have a Kawahara thrust bearing as backup though.

RCNUT should have some univerals in this week sometime I think. I was going to order some from him earlier, but I need some driveshafts now. I broke my turn buckle rod on a hard crash due to brake adjustment. Then I lost a driveshaft.

G4 is really tough, I just hit the wall really hard this time.


That rear aluminum brace and carbon shock tower is an excellent upgrade. It really stiffens up the rear end for ya.

I would have to agree with the Mugen Super grease, good stuff. I sure do love rain on Sunday.

Its getting nice up here in amherst ohio. I am going to be ordering the universals through shopatron.com they are 49.99 for 2 of them. I want them now I'm also picking up some more fuel and a new glow charger battery. I have had problems all weekend and come to find out the battery in my glow charger couldn't hold a charge for more than 3 seconds. Hopefully iwll have my car back together soon. Thanks for the info on the grease.

There's a couple of problems with ordering G4 parts through shopatron.

They are slow and their inventory is often not up to date.

RCNUT can get those parts to you much faster than Trinity can and a bit cheaper if he has them.
