I bought this Ravager used and was not sure if I have the "Factory" steering set up or not (Ball ends, Rods, turn buckles and tapered washers). After receiving these parts Very quickly I might say (thanks Nitro House) I found that I did in fact have the factory set up.

Here is my question. It seems like the 7mm balls and ball ends are a bit big and my front tires rub/wear these ends down. It seems like there is just enough play in my front tires to aid in this damage. Is it common to place a shim between the front outer bearing and the hex to take up some of this play? I happen to have one smaller turnbuckle with smaller ball ends and it seems to work out great, although I only have on and not a pair. Any ideas or suggestions?

I had a hellfire, and from the factory, they recommended that you add atleast 1 shim behind the hex. I checked my jammin buggy, and there isn't enough play to add a shim. I get a little rub on the plastic parts, but I have been racing it like that for almost 2 years, and haven't had any problems with it.

Thank you for the advise. I'll give that a try and give an update on how it goes.
