    Belcrank keeps popping out!

    Hey,
    My belcrank in my slash keeps popping out and is starting to oval out the holes in the chassie and that is making the steering really sloppy causing a really wide turning radius. Is there any way to fix the holes or stop my belcrank from popping out or make my steering less sloppy??
    Please help and pm me any links please!
    Thanks,
    Slashbasher24

    I haven't gone with any solution yet. My motor and esc are currently at traxxas for testing to see if they can determine why I have to push the truck to get it to move.

    I still use the old bellcrank system and I had the same problem though mine did not wear the holes in the chassis. My fix was the RPM front skid plate. It has not pop out since I put that on, well over a year ago. It is a very sturdy piece and cheap fix for the problem.
