The front gearbox you’ll need both threadlock and black grease for this bag, so keep them handy and let’s get going by spilling out the contents of bag c the front gearbox. As with previous items, all sections of the buggy seem really nicely produced. The plastic gearbox is pretty much molded to perfection, so we start with the main body of the gearbox and inserting both bearings supplied within the package, the smaller to the outside and the larger on the inside next feed. The differential pinion gear, through both bearings from the inside out and place a small shim on the outer side before inserting the differential coupler and after placing a little thread lock on the set screw, insert it into the coupler and tighten down into place. Give the coupler a few turns making sure everything is nice and free. There should be no binding here whatsoever next insert the front differential constructed in bag b, so the one with the 20 000 cst oil into the front gearbox just to see how it sits. If there’s any place side to side, then use the two included shims on either side enough until there’s, absolutely very little if any play we’re good without the shims. In this example, although do keep the shims safe in case, you need to install them in future. Once the vehicle has been run in, but for now i can go ahead and remove the differential in order to place some black grease on the main ring gear.
You don’t want to go crazy with the grease here. Just a small amount going around the gear as it helps reduce temperatures and makes the set last longer after which it can be placed back into the front gearbox. We can then place the gearbox cover on top and secure into place using two 14 millimeter cap head screws supplied within the package, we’re screwing into plastic here, so tighten enough so that it’s snug but don’t over tighten as you’ll risk stripping the threads. At this point, i like to slowly turn the diff coupler, as well as the differential itself, just to get some of that grease spread around the ring gear and pinion and to check everything is turning nice and freely. We can then proceed to seal up the gearbox by placing the final plastic cover on the bottom and securing into place using two six millimeter flathead screws again taking care not to over, tighten and strip out any threads gearbox now sealed and you can give the differential A faster turn really making sure it’s, spinning, nice and free the final step with the front gearbox is to attach the front shock tower perfectly cnc, crafted with absolutely no imperfections at all anyway. We’Ll first attach our shock standoffs notice. We have several positions depending upon how you wish to tweak your setup, although we’ll go with the stock position for the moment. So with the standoff inserted, secure into place with one of the two flanged lock nuts included in the package.
You’Ll find this easier with the use of a five millimeter wrench to hold the stand off. While we secure the lock nut down into position repeat with the second shock, stand off and lock nut on the opposite side. Finally, we insert the body mounts to the opposite side of the shock standoffs, one on either side and secure into place using a single 20 millimeter cap head screw into each again taking care not to over tighten with these in place. We can line up the shock tower with the front gearbox and secure into place using the final remaining 14 millimeter cap head screws. Four in total, again we’re going into plastic here so take care not to over tighten a nice snug fit is all that’s required and with those in place, bag c is complete front. Gearbox, built and spinning nice and smoothly all parts fit together with perfection. No problems at all note. We have these two differential, shims spare and, as stated, keep these in a safe place.
