Another incredible day of crawling (5+ hours) with my v1 10.2; this thing is still fairly stock and performs so bloody good! I finally got a chance to run the 1.9 P-L Flatiron XL tires out and they impressed me a lot considering that I have been running silver KLR tires for a while now. They have earned their keep on my original 10.2 rig!

Tons of hard hitting rolls, crashes and tumbles today and I have yet to break or bend anything on this beast.

About 200 meters left on the trail at the end of the day and I discovered only two of the six Locked-Up RC scale acorn lug nut bolts were remaining on the passenger side rear wheel and I didn't have the special tool to tighten them since I never considered that these bolts would be an issue out on the trail. About 50 meters later the wheel fell off!!!

Here's some pics.....

I've been there with the same bolts Bill, as much as it pained me, I put a small dab of loctite on each one after my latest tear down.

How do you think the rock beast xl's would compare to those tires you've tried on this truck?

I've never used the 1.9 RB XL tires, so I can't give you an honest opinion. I have used the 2.2 versions of both and I would have to say I prefer the Flatiron XL tires over the RBII, I believe the slightly more open tread design of the FI XL tires provide better rock crawling performance.

After snapping the the Panhard mount on my other 10.2, I decided to upgrade this 10.2 as well. I went with Samix front shock hoops on the SR5 10.2 and STRC front shocks hoops for this one.

Hi Bill,

I would like to know what lubricant you use on the front Universal joint axles?
and how often you clean and re-lube them?

Thank You Bill for your time and help,

Great thread and extremely informative! What thickness and type of washer did you use? Any product link? Thanks Bill!

No worries. I'm sure I could figure it out from a pic. Thanks for trying to get those reloaded.
