    Re: MRC Build

    first up was the rear...

    old setup


    as you can see you are removing an eight piece set up and replacing it with a four.


    you can see with the supplied set screws that there is no longer a hex head to get caught on the rocks.:)




    all finished up. "thumbsup"

    the front is a pretty basic swap and you simply remove one and replace with the upgrade piece..

    old set up


    only real part you have to watch for is to make sure you place the correct "c" to side it goes to because they are clocked.


    "Cs" also come with small set screws so you loose the hex head just like the rear.


    comparison pics.



    done..

    with the front done and with the drive cups cut about a mm back (also used a dome shaped stone on the dremel to taper the inside of the drive cup) this is what the steering ended up at..
