From Micro_Racer in another thread...
Many SC-18 racers have had the same problem with the rear screws loosening -- a few tricks are:
1. Put a dab of Lock-Tite on the screw - that will prevent them from backing out
2. Super glue the pod plates to the T-Plate top and bottom - if a screw backs out it should hold for the race.
3. This is what I did - buy a 4-40 tap it will come with the drill bit, tap the pod plates and top, bottom T-Plate and use the Associated Button Head Socket Screw 4-40x3/16" part number 6920...I have never had that problem again!
Two things that will help:
1 -Polish the kingpins, front axles and pivot ball ( on the v2 chassis ) with a quality metal polish like Semichrome, Flitz, etc. Use a Dremel tool or drill motor to hold the piece and a piece of cloth with a dab of polish.
2 - Preperation. Get the car ready before you get to the track!!!!!!!!!
Here is a good one I got from SG1 large associated damper disks with O ring instead of the stock ones use 100 weight Losi shock oil fill the area around damper post then put the top disk on.
The SC18 V2 kits will come with the larger disks also the conversion kits have them. :thumbsup:
