adjust your epa so that you get equal travel both left and right but it doesnt hit the radio tray.

it is sticking straight up..so if it is hitting the right bracket i want to move the arm so it faces 9 pm

so essentially i am going to turn it the opposite way it is striking the body....wont that cause the steering to start to the left?

You dont want it straight up. Check your manual for the correct angle (about 15 degrees left from straight up from memory) It wont hit the radio plate if it is done correctly. Shorten your tie rod to suit.

Not sure what you mean here. Try assembling all your suspension without the CVDs installed. Make sure it is all free & no binding. All arms should drop under their own weight without shocks installed. Then re install the CVDs.

That is good. When it gets stiff that is the piston reaching the top of the liner. If it is loose than your engine is no good. The engines have a tapered bore & rely on the pinch for compression.

I think the standard springs are Copper & Gold... not silver. You can confirm this at www.rc10.com
