What do you need to know?

The smaller diameter side of the aluminum whashers go towards the bearing, one on each side of the knuckle. I have 3 spacers on the wheel side of the knuckle under the drive pin.

Ill try to get some pics.

yes i need assistance in setting it up

post pics please!

what do you mean 1 on each side of the knuckle ( where exactly )?

well after i finished mine, i tried a standard kyosho/mugen wheel on and the QR snaps onto the rim but it doesnt snap on by awhole lot. If i pull on the wheels hard they fly right off and that can't be good going at high speeds
I must be doing somthing wrong.

You put one washer on the axle before you insert it into the knuckle, then put another washer on to the axle on the front side, where the wheel goes. So when its all together you have (starting from the inside, where the cvd is)axle, washer, bearing, bearing washer. Then you add shims between the washer and the drive pin.

You do have the aluminum washers, right? The ones that are tapered on one side. Those are ones Im talking about.

Also, what wheels are you using? Jaco and Xceed wheels fit a little tight, it takes some effort to get them to clic. The one on the pic is a Kawahara tire, it slips right on. Let me know if you need any more help.

Yes i have similar washers, its kyosho but same measurements.

I will add the washers how you said it and let you know later, I didn't set mine as to how you said it.

thanks for the pictures, i have a better idea now and from you explanation.

the tires are twister, they slide right through and CLICK but the QR isn't as far over as your wheel in the picture.

I drive my car with Twister, and they fit.
So you should be able to figure it out....
1 thing though, if You go to Kawahara, which I also have, they are just a tiny bit wider, so you need more shims on the outside, to offset the wheel more, just as in the pictures of nitrodude...

I havent tried the twisters on, but on some wheels you have to push the lever because it doesnt snap all the way, the wheel has flashing and it gets in the way.

thats exactly my problem, so i guess i had everything on correctly.

the wheel wasn't snapping all the way, i have to push the lever over more for it to clip full way.

does this mean i have to keep doing this once i am using twister tires?

Switch to the new XCEED/JACO tires (6 spoke rim) then you won't have any problem.
