    C-hubs and Bearings

    Hi,

    i drove yesterday with my Xo-1. I was wondering why the car always was driving to the right although the steering was set right.
    At home is checked the front and find following.
    The C-Hub turns very very bad. You need to much force to turn the steering buckle. Furthermore the bearing are bad also. The small and the bigger one in the buckle turn really bad think they are broken .
    You have this problem also? What have you done against it?

    Thanks in advance

    maybe take it apart and see whts causing the issue your having .. there are aftermarket bearing kits you can buy for this car if you arnt please .. but if you find some bad bearings you can call TRAXXAS or get them at your hobbyshopnear you ..will notice a big differnce if there bad

    Yeah but i spent 1100€ for this car ant won't put another 200€ for aftermarkt parts which are better.
    Here in Germany the parts for the XO are very rare....
    I tried to get the parts 6832,6439,5117,5119. i found that parts except 5117, but is have to order each part in another shop...
    There are many reseller but at the distributor has many parts on backorder.
    If i know that before, i hadn't buyed this car.

    Double check the 6mm nut insert on the end of the shaft. Was it over tightened? Send customer support a email with pics about your defect. They'll get you going again.

    Why did you send it in when bearings retail for less than 2 euros?!
    If you purchased this car surely you would be fixing it yourself. Seeing as it says experts only on the front...
    Does more $ = More fun?

    I am getting tired of these stories. Its called maintenance . Think of it like this your everyday car gets a certain maintenance, think of the maintenance of a supercar.

    Same thing different scale.A xo-1 going 100mph is going to require more maintenance than a rustler going 50-70mph more often than not. Especially the bearings.

    Just sayin............

    but for $1000 people are thinking parts might last longer. but if it was me i would check the car over after every run. as at high speeds failures will happen more often.

    I think the expert level was more or less for the driving skill level

    they do last longer if you maintain them one would guess just like a normal car
