Default HPI Sprint 2 Pulley

Hi folks
I've bought an used Sprint 2 Flux and I completely disassembled it to replace broken parts and stuff
After building it up again, I've got an issue on my pulleys
The thing is that that black part that comes with the pulley itself (HPI Part #85016) (that prevents the belt to slip away) doesn't stay in place. Because of that, the belt slips from the pulley and stay in the gap between the pulley and this plastic part.

The question is: Should I glue that piece to the pulley or what?

Is this what your car looks like? http://www.rcwebandwarehouse.com.au/...les/perf1t.jpg

I can't find any actual parts blowout diagrams. But, in that picture, it looks like the pulley is held in place by the outside housing on one end and a pin on the other end. Are you sure you assembled it correctly?

I have a sprint, but have never had that problem. I. See no reason why you couldn't glue it though.

Yeah, that's the Sprint 2 Pulleys. In one side, the pin holds the pulley in place and it's all good. In the other that black piece is shorter then the pulley and have a gap between it and the motor mount. I'll try glueing it before I ruin another pulley lol

How do you like the sprint? How does it compare to the tc4?

I have one, bought it cheap for a project that never fully developed, i think a tc4 would have been a better choice, the sprint just feels cheap.

Indeed. Mine needed some good money to became reliable

About my question, I've foud the answer on MANUAL 4-3
There's a CA glue indication there to glue both parts!
Problem solved, thanks
