Trouble w/ .5 front kingpins. Bettin this has been covered in 24 pages of chat, but couldn't get thru it all to check.
After my last outing, the front kingpin screws had loosened. When I tried to run em back in, found they had stripped the threaded inserts. If drive while loose, I guess it strips the inserts....still not sure why. I loaded up on the Locktite, & ran the screws back in to get thru raceday. Problem w/ too much Locktite was then trying to get the screws back out to replace the different pieces....excess built up so screw couldn't slip out of outer sleeve. Unscrewing simply pushed threaded insert down into the U-joint's space. Was a pain to extract....had to "pull" the threaded inserts out after removing spindle.
Replaced inserts & screws recently, but strange results in "do not overtighten" the screws. Just barely snugging them up really restricted movement of spindles. I went really light on Locktite this time. Just barely sinched them up, & decided to let Locktite dry overnight before turning spindle. If you flex spindle right after inserting, that backs out the screws. Basically glueing those screws in place just barely tightened, & prayin that they will stick, & not back out once racing.
God, crappy engineering. Any one else been there? If so, whats the trick to getting them tight enough to hold but not restrict spindle movement? Thx in advance. BTW, great jugs on icons !!!

Wow that stinks. I have had my .5 for 4months and had no problems like that havent had any of those screws backing out maybe it just my luck of the irsh. And i have replaced both knuckles and king pins in both. I used the pase locktite so maybe thats it.

I had once a king pin screw that left the car but just a little thread lock on all of them solved the pbs and it never happened again .
I guess that with the RTR it has to be done when the car is new in order to not have further pbs there later on .

i Had the same Problem! someone told me to take a knife and make sure there wasnt a bur causing the problem. what i had to do was tighten the bottom one first then just snugg the top and let set so the lock tight cured before racing, havent had a problem by doing that. I also have switched to the cnc knuckles. had to do the same with them.

only thing i can figrue out is that the bushing needs to be a touch longer so the screw head when tightend down doesnt lock up the steering. hope that helps and mybe someone else has a fix for this

New Problem: run 6 or 8 tanks thru stock Jammin12 Force engiine. Once run 1/4 tank or so, & nice n warm, idle speed drops and engiine dies first chance upon slowing. On bench, crank up idle speed when already warm, but occasionally drops idle speed & dies shortly after. Sealed carb w/ silicone @ base & on ends of cinchdown screw. Other buddies having same problem. OFNA sd probably air leak, but everything so new, I doubt it. One way bearing on pull starter is hit/miss. Buddy sd probable rearcrank bearing leak causing air leak & one-way to hit/miss. OFNA sd one-way actually works better when lubed, so slight leak would actually help one-way. He sd dry bearing is more likely to hit/miss. OFNA guessed leak in tank, & bad one-way....replace.
Anyway, had a couple of experienced nitro guys try to solve, but both are scratchin heads.
Guesses ??????????? Thx for any help.

First part broken ! after one whole gallon in the car i managed to snap the right front turnbuckle ! metal seem's to be too hard to bend so it snap's so i ordered the whole set with all the hingepins from lunsford in titanium that one Finish retailer just received , i will get it tomorrow and i should never have any more pbs there .
My stepbrother managed to brake one of the rear dogbone after 5 tanks non stop on the track , i guess it's a good test as it was his first ever driving cession on the track and he amazed a lot of guys with his car .

I have same problems.

If tank is full engine is too rich and if tank is bellow half its too lean. Engine temp change from 90Celsius to 130Celcius between full tank and 1/4 tank. Few Buggy guys try to adjust the engine without suggess.

DJ- Thx for the reply was hoping you would chime in since it seems that your the MAN with this bad boys. Well i just picked up this truck last week from Speed Shop in Lawndale. Mario built the car but never drove it. I will upload some pix of the truck tonite. So is NitroHouse the only people still carrying parts for this guy? Hit me up when you guys go out to play im willing to drive down to have some fun. This truck is so much fun im pretty much a electric guy but once i got this truck ive been having way to much fun with it. Thx again for replying let me know if you got some tricks for this truck!!
