Here is the next chapter in my Team Associated RC8.2e FT build. My confidence was high after completing Bags A, B and C with little issue, so it was on to Bag D, the Front Bulkhead Assembly. Immediately on the first step my progress came to a halt and my confidence was deflated a little. Getting the CV Boot over the Center CVA Bone turned on to be an adventure that had me looking to my husband for help after 15 minutes with no progress. He placed a little black grease over the pin and gently worked the boot over the pin pushing it with his thumb nail. Everything else in Bag D went together smoothly and I was flying high again until I realized I installed a piece incorrectly. Continue Reading
Boom Racing has released a bunch of Aluminum upgrades for the ECX Torment, Circuit, and Ruckus. Some of the upgrades include Steering Blocks, Hub Carriers and A-Arms. To see all of the parts, check out AsiaTees.
FWIW, If you aren’t familiar with AsiaTees, I made 2 separate orders from AsiaTees this year, both times I used PayPal and I haven’t had any issues.
The AKA Track Database is an online app to aid in tire selection for tracks all over the world. The tire recommendations come straight from the world championship winning race team and is constantly updated. It’s easy as typing in a track name and hitting enter to see the exact tread patterns and compounds to keep you hooked up in most 1:8 and 1:10 chassis. For a walk through check out the YouTube video and head on over to www.raceaka.com/trackdatabase and give it a go!
My Team Associated SC10.2 FT build is moving right along. This bag didn’t provide any challenges, but it did provide a couple of talking points. 1) Getting the Front Hinge Pin Brace in place on the chassis, took a little muscle to get it to seal properly. 2) The Front Body Post has 4 holes in it, the 4 holes allows you to adjust your body height. The holes are drilled on an angle, so make sure to get the angle matched to the Body Mount, or the screws will not be able to go thru the Body Mount and Body Post. 3) The Ball Cups are not threaded. If you tap them before you try to install the turnbuckles, it will make this process easier.
All of the parts in Bag C, nicely organized.
