    Pulls left on acceleration

    Does your ERBE pull left on acceleration? Mine has always done it somewhat, but lately it's gotten worse. I have set the toe and camber as close as I can get it to stock. I suppose it got out of wack when I broke a arms a while ago as well as a toe/ steering link. It has really become pronounced since I got some new SPC 2S batteries that have great punch. Any suggestions or comments would be helpful. Thanks!

    The rear rings were off a bit more than 1/16th inch. Is that enough to cause it to pull?

    Check if the left wheels run as free as the right ones. If not, check for a bad bearing or if the Hex is in contact with the bearing.
    Not enough space here

    Roger wilco. I spent some time on to and camber f and R. Its better now. Curious if this is related to a rear diff that is chattering that I'm putting off rebuilding. Work has been busy and interferes with my hobbies. I should be grateful. When I have my Talons mounted its most obnoxious. I have a track practice day/ Pre-season practice today. I'll see how it does on the dirt track with decent rims and tires.

    Thanks a million for the input traxxas forum folks!

    Regarding pivot balls and caps, I often wonder how tight they can be without binding.

    Not very tight, it is a feel thing for me. I snug it (cap) until I feel it touch then back it off just a little bit. Then run the suspention (a arms) check for any binding.

    You've described pretty much what I do. Thanks for the input. After going through the whole thing and not finding anything wrong, I rotated my wheels/tires from front to back. Problem solved immediately. I just bought 2 Talons mounted for the rear to match 2 that came with a Revo I picked up used. Wouldn't you know, one of the new tires wobbles like crazy. Not so much out of balance as it is mounted crooked on the rim.

    That is the last set of assembled rims/tires I'll buy. As much as I dislike gluing tires on rims, I think I can get them on straighter than whoever is assembling them at the tire factory in the sky!
