I'm using for steerign rod ...perfect fitting ....and never drop out.
Did I see 1/10 touring car up there?

Mr. Chan, try this kyosho ball end, 1295KP. Together with the W0136 hard ball, their combo would not dissapoint you untill you sell your car.

Default Re ballcups and diff

Hi,

I have no slop on the steering because of this simple and easy trick.

I have taken the hairdryer of my sister.
I heatend the baalcups and all moving parts and moved them while heatening.
Then I let them cool down for a while and move them again.
After this check you can do this again if the slop is not completely gone.

Never use a paint remover for it, because they will let the parts melt!

It's a cheap and easy trick, and it's working really well.

The second thing that you can do is pollishing the balls a little.
I would use a scotty brite pad for this.
I didn't try it, but a friend of my said it should work.

I service my diff after every day of running.
I clean it completely and clean al things with hot water and a small amout of vinegar
I take a small pan, and put hot water in it aswell as some vinegar.
For the plastic parts I do not heat it to much, else the parts will melt.
For the aluminium or steel parts like you're brakedisk you can let the water and vinegar cook.
All the oil and dirt will come off, and the parts will look like new
This trick is also ideal for those alu shockbodies, only then you cannot use vinegar because of the teflon inside the bodies.

Try it some time, I know it sounds dumb but you'll be surprised

Thomas.

Default Diff outdrives

Hi,

I use Serpent shockcapfoam in the diff outdrives and wheelaxles.
They reduce the wearing of the outdrives and wheelaxles.
I also use Tamiya's grease.
This combination is working fine for me, it only atracts a lot of dust!

One of the Serpent guys said you could use 808327 Revision pins driveshafts 4-WD (8) or 808328 Revision pins driveshafts 2-WD (4) to reduce the wear on the outdrives.

They are the single sided closed type. I saw Suruth's car used those on the steering linkage.
D that was early this year and you tell us only now?

You've really lost it ... errr, the RING I mean.

Thomas.
On hairdryer thing? no it is not, you just simply make the plastic shrink more after reheating to a specific temps. Simply great tips.

I agree with you on this because I think there should not be any slop in the steering. all the previous cars never had any slop (Streetspec, Imp Pro, 705) so it can be done.
