Default New Wraith Kit Turning Issue

Hi, i finally got my wraith kit version together, i adjusted my steering so the wheels can turn nice and far left and nice and far right. Problem is when i do this, you can hear the CVD's binding and clicking. Did i do something wrong or do i just need to cut back how far they turn?

I have my turning range set at 65% or so, anymore and it starts to bind in the cvds.

Also, im not sure if its the vibration, but 2 screws that hold the splined front hub carriers onto the axle keep backing out. they are just so small, how do you keep them in??

Thanks!

Turn the steering rate down, or get some cvd's. I use VP vvd's but they are pricey.

Replace the self tappers that hold your chubs to the axle with some machine screws.

1. Set your limits so that they don't click.

2. When you get the chance, feed your universals to the bench grinder and give them more clearance.

3. Reset your limits and enjoy lots of steering.
