I dont know if anyone else has tried this but i used 2 thumbnail size pieces of aluminum foil to remove all the wheel slop from my 1/16 e revo vxl. i just took out the ball pins and wrapped the aluminum foil over the top and then poked out the whole for the hex wrench. then you put it back in the axle carrier and move it around so it has free travel. you dont have to use 2 pieces just however many you need for each ball pin to not wiggle anymore but still move freely in the socket. let me know what you guys think. it worked great for me so i just had to share it.
Doesn't it wear out?
if you have the thread in caps for the stock axle carriers or alloy carriers, you wont have that issue
i guess it will eventually where out mine hasnt yet and even if it does its a simple fix without havin to buy parts.
@topher: Are you talking about putting aluminum foil on the pillow balls? Not a bad idea if you are...
@jimbo: thread in caps? could you explain please?
HOWEVER, it is $20 for the set of 8 caps... i would rather jsut buy aluminum knuckles front and rear for $40 that have those pieces already
Nice idea but too bad the stock knuckles in general are garbage lol
