No grease!
OK then its designed to run 2mm offset SO why do the MTX2 bones fit ok when its set up for 2mm offset at 200mm. Why not keep the lenth in the dogbone?

Sorry, I might be babbling. It's just too early for fish.
Depends on what grease you use,here's the grease we offer B0308 very sticky but dos'nt atract that much debree.

Default Greasing the outdrives/axles

Guys;

ANY kind of lube is better than none at all. Even in Off-Road conditions. Your drive line joints will last much, much longer with a drop of lube every once in a while. The Teflon pen oilers are the easiest to use. Dirt/dust is really a non-issue as the metal to metal contact rubbing is more detrimental to the joints than anything else.

I had the same problem with my MRX-3 once...

Clean it real good and reapply locktite, lots of it.
I usually apply liberally and let dry on the screw, then screw it in.

I personally use Snap-On tools. Far better and practically indestructable. They dont eat the head of the allen screws as much either and they can be put in at an angle. Very expensive though.

you learn it from HPI forum???

You might not want to use 197 or any less, but yes that's a way to stop dogbone clicking.

What's the problem with the spacer? it works great.

I know somebody insist to use grease, if you are, go ahead.

All these about common sense, need not learn from anywhere.

You want to use the brass seal from a glow plug to space out your rim?.... ok, I would spend the couple of bucks and get a proper one... I didnt spend lots of money on my car to use a dodgy fix like that.

I have fixed the clicking problem.... it just needed bedding in....


God how I wish the HPI forum was back the way it was.... wouldnt be as many goblins in here then...
