issues with rear axle build
 
ok i have RC4WD TLT-1 Straight Axle and the straight axel adapter i bought from rpp hobbies i have the axel mated to RC4WD TracGear II Spool Locker wich i got from the crawler store i have had verry good expirence with both of these vendors but for some odd reason the assebly of the rear axel was not as smoth as the build for the front axel only 2 out of the 4 bearing on the straight axle one each axle has groves for the eclips to hold the bearing in place the right has a clip on outher bearing and left as a clip for inner bearing unlike my front where they all alined up perfectly pluss the long shaft did not like going in smothly yes i am wear there is a grub screw in the spool but when i took it out the hole does not go completly through the side a little odd if you ask me:roll: with the adapters on the longes axel shaft wich has the eclip on the inner bearing that sets aginst the spool so i know it will not go in any farther as the build stands my major problem is on that side of the axle the pin hole for the is about 1/4 above the bearing in the adapter whear on the other side the the hub pin sits right on the bearing comparing lenghts of my axles the rear is longer has any one ran into this before? :shock: the only thing i can come up with is that the logest axle is to long

i have the axel mated to RC4WD TracGear II Spool Locker wich i got from the crawler store.
i have had verry good expirence with both of these vendors but for some odd reason the assebly of the rear axel was not as smoth as the build for the front axel.
only 2 out of the 4 bearingx on the straight axle - one each axle has groves for the eclips to hold the bearing in place.
the right has a clip on outher bearing and left as a clip for inner bearing.
unlike my front where they all lined up perfectly.
plus the long shaft did not like going in smothly.
yes i am aware there is a grub screw in the spool but when i took it out the hole does not go completly through the side.
a little odd if you ask me:roll: with the adapters on the longes axel shaft wich has the eclip on the inner bearing that sets aginst the spool.
so i know it will not go in any farther.
as the build stands my major problem is on that side of the axle.
the pin hole for the is about 1/4 above the bearing in the adapter where on the other side the the hub pin sits right on the bearing.
comparing lenghts of my axles the rear is longer.
has any one ran into this before? :shock: the only thing i can come up with is that the logest axle is to long

OK, I had to do it....:twisted: I write technical papers and bad sentence structure kills me. I couldn't read it either and it made my head hurt too. I don't know what the F is going on with this, but I am interested to see what the answer is now that someone can read it....."thumbsup"

I understand that, but you have to remember that others - like me - have no reading comprehension abilities even when it's written well. I'm the guy that doesn't read directions because it's easier for me to just start putting it together. I went through High School and College doing as little as possible, now I can't remember crap that I read. Hands on only....
