The inner part of the shock is 10mm and the outer is 12.9mm.

Yeah, I tried to go, but the flights and everything were just not convenient with my work I had.

Shame too, looked like some good racing.

Default Clicking noise from the rear end of the drive train

Dear all,

i have a clicking noise on the rear end of the driver, actually it seems that its coming from the disc brake area.

I have tried replacing the 2 x bearings of the 2 spd shaft and i also replaced the ones at the back where the solid axle sits.

Problem still not solved

Tried removing some tension from the rear belt and it helped but you can still hear the clicks and drive train is not butter smooth.

When the belt is removed the 2spd shaft runs very free and even the rear solid axle is free.

Nothing is touching belt is new and gears are quite new.

With one whole 360 degree rotation from the 1/2nd gears shaft you end up hearing like 6-8 clicks

Thanks in advance

I had a similar problem.
Try to replace the z20 pulley and his support on the 1/2nd gears shaft .
I seems that you have to much play between the support and the pulley.
Replacing only the z20 pulley will help a little.

Check to see if the layshaft pully is not touching the bulkhead, if the pully is to close to the bulkhead the pins holding the disc can rub on the bulkhead.

Inspected these parts and found some play between pulley and support. Tried putting some silicone to fill in the gap. Will try it tomorrow.

It worked the clicking noise was coming from the play between the plastic Kevlar gear and the holder.

thanks crashnco

Guys,

I'm rookie...
One question about the right position of the body on CAP C801 Collari Edition.
I have an used body (i don't know which reference is?). The distance between the front of the body and the bumper is 14mm. I think it is too on the rear!?
Now i bought a P909 body. Which is the right position? I red something about 25 mm? I'm perplexed.
Is it normal to have this gap according the type of the body?
Is it possible to adjust the position of the body in base of the track? Which is the common range to adjust the body?

Thanks

laurent

I would say 14mm is fine, and I would only in rare cases go further than 14mm. You know that the body posts are eccentric? So depending on which way they are set now, you can move the body a bit to the front or rear. You can use this for fine tuning if you have a little to much steering, move the body backwards and vice versa.

Yes, moving the body back or forth can be used as a set-up tuning depending on the track you run. But I would find a standard position that suits me, and only turn the body post for fine tuning when needed. Rest of the tuning I would do on the car set-up.
