Try to make sure that the pin sits properly into the groove of the aluminum hex adaptor properly. Make sure you tighten the wheel nut.

The shocks should settle nicely when you compress it a little or a lot to the bottom.
Its off just by .5mm or so, maybe 1mm max

I'm stumped. Can't figure it out! I gone and measured everything. It all measures out ok. I've even taken the axle drive cup thing. Put the pin through it and then installed the aluminum wheel hex on both front ones and all the measurements are within 0.01mm. I've measured the knuckles and they are the same thickness as well. Don't have a clue. I'm going to reloook at everything again. I doubt I'll find anything new? Thanks. Talk to you later.

Hey Goldfinger, did you say you had to use shims on where thr wheel hex adapter goes? If so, what size?

You need not compress your shocks fully down to take a reading. You'll probably destroy the shocks even before playing !

Perhaps the reason why you're getting off numbers is because you did not compress the shocks nicely. Sufficient compress on the chassis a few times should do the trick to get a good number.

Oh great master D! How did the front/rear wear on the tyres of the 705 compare to the 710? i.e. with your normal split, does the 705 wear its tyres equally?

No... that .6mm play is without wheel. When you tighten the wheel nut is will down to max .3mm.
What Pyramid and I do is put shims between axle and inner bearing.
Dont worry, I put the shims already.

It does. I started with a split of about 4 mm and ended with 3.5 mm on the 705.

But even then, I used 40 shore in front and 42 shore in the rear. Perhaps the rear end was sliding a little more than I wanted with the harder shore and oneway front.

I notice that running front diffs or a solid axle really conserves the tires and make them wear equally as you can slow down before taking a turn.

Thanks alot Goldfinger, your the man! I owe you.
Just double checked everything and its both front axle drive cups that have 0.6mm play. I didn't notice the other because it fits a little tighter in the bearings. I checked the rear knuckles and they have virtually no plat at all? I guess I'll just have to wait for the shims from Goldfinger. Thanks again. Can't wait to get them! Let me know. Later...

Tamiya?

I use back the same steel self tapping screws. I think the size is weird as it is not 2.5 mm or 3 mm but it's 3.5 mm and some even at 2.9 mm !

Well, you know I need to replace the ones from my Surikarn, since you Jedi mind-tricked them away

Ach, yes, 3.5mm I new the size was pretty weird - perhaps I can get some Alu ones - the Alu ones are just as light, I think.
