I bought a bunch of "junk" at a garage sale recently and have managed to find parts for a surprising number of vehicles buried in the bins. So far I've built a running RC10T and an RC18T, but the one I'm most keen on is the 2wd Slash that I have *almost* complete. I went through everything and replaced bent hinge pins, upgraded a few bits from my parts box and put it all together with a Trinity 19T (brushed) motor that was also in the parts bin.
The problem I'm having is that when I get it set up with what looks like the right Toe-In, there aren't enough threads left in the rod ends, so the inboard one on the pax side keeps popping off. The length of the turnbuckles are about 59.3 mm.
As far as I've been able to determine, this is the right length for the steering turnbuckle, so I don't have them confused with the camber turnbuckles… When I have things set up, the rod ends are only getting a couple of turns onto the turnbuckles, and after a few minutes of driving on the street and making u-turns, the passenger side one pops off.
I've tried making sure that the same number of turns are put into each end, and that doesn't seem to be helping.
Any ideas? Thanks!
