That looks to me like the stock Axial Deadbolt bumper.

Well heck, get on it! Everything else should take a back seat once a new kit is in hand right

Normally I would agree.

Just got notice my boy is being sent overseas to an undisclosed location for 6 months or more. 😐

Hmm, well Iíd say that definitely qualifies as a good reason to postpone a build. Best wishes to you and him.

Thank him for his service. I like to thank other service members. I know he'll be getting after it!

Found this interesting. Just about every rig I have has Incision links on it. Which has meant some tedious sore finger causing work. The link design here is basically exactly like the Incision links. Is putting grease on the metal threads a trick for easier rod end installs that I didnít know about?

Any input here? Seem to have about 2mm of travel in and out with the universal. Does that travel need to be present, or should I put a shim in to get rid of it. If so where would be the correct place to put the shim, between the hex and the outer bearing?

Chapstick.

preferably straight off the stick, don't apply to lips then lips to threads. that's just a bad look.

then just put 2 drivers through the open rod ends and spin away. no reason to wear out your thumbs doing that.

Ok, this makes it so easy you won't believe it!!! I put a little machine wax on the threads and (drum Roll please) put the link in my drill, one of my drivers in the link end and run the in with the drill. Make sure you are at a very low speed on the drill. Run it down to the end of the threads, turn it around and put the link end the chuck and run the other one down. EASY PEASY!!!

Ha very good thanks. Great tips. Iíd considered using my drill motor many times when nursing my callused finger tips. Just was concerned about damaging them, so never pulled the trigger, as it were.

You need some end play, that sounds like more than normal, but a 5mm shim behind the pin, in front of the bearing,Traxxas rigs usually needed these , so I have some

Do the axles butt in the center? If they do, a quick lap will solve that.
Im so used to axial slop, my VPís were a dream fit wise, I should get to axles tomorrow evening when I will look and measure

You end up getting to your axles yet? Interesting thing. I got all the ďhardĒ plastic options when I ordered the kit. Minus the caster/steering blocks which came today. Once installed Iíve found there is now zero slop with the front universals with no shims
