Look, epic, so let’s get right into this video Music. So these are the upgrade parts i have for the max today here. These are the front steering blocks this big beefy piece here. These things look absolutely amazing: 7075 aluminum, which is the strongest lightweight aluminum material. You can get for these things. I have a feeling it’s going to be absolutely epic. During your 17 millimeter spine, spline did not wrench to get off the wheel, which i already did a 2.5 allen wrench and a 2.0 allen wrench that should take out this big screw here. Another big screw on the bottom and that screw there that should get all out. Oh guys, these things look nice check out those bearings man. Those things are huge. I guess for these uh cbd drive, shafts, constant velocity ones. Oh and some nice stainless steel screws as well also in the bag. We get our little trio, rc upgrades manufacturer uh paper here bunch of different stickers – probably slap one of them right on the side of the max now because i’m going to try and stick with these parts all around, because they actually got these ten dollars cheaper. Of what the traxxas parts would be and they’re actually stronger, all the blue on that man, those things look nice, look at that machining inside of there wow, guys that looks epic and on the outside. We got a little bit of that cool machined. Look. They are going to look absolutely awesome on there.
Oh man, little trio logo on the side, Dobro, let’s just get the fit in these things, Glazba, all right so now, with the steering knuckle off we’re going to we took. I already did this actually, but with these aluminum 17 millimeter spine hubs from traxxas there’s, this little set screw to hold in the big pin here that goes right there and then the set screw goes inside there. So i got that off on camera, then that pops right out then you’re just going to pop your constant velocity driveshaft out. That thing still looks beautiful even after some good bashing we’ve got bearings in there i’m, not sure whether i want to use these new bearings or the old ones. I think i, like the metal shielded bearings better, but let’s pop this cap off so there’s the damage. It was really nothing at all guys, To je. Just that little notch pulled away there. You can see how it’s a little bit separated it doesn’t look like that much. But when you take a big crash, the pin is just going to keep ripping out of there. So i figured i’d try the aluminum ones out, because these things are they’re. Iskreno, the same weight as stock to me like seriously guys these things are super light, they’re not going to add any weight to the truck plus they also look 10 times better than stock. I mean look at that, but so we got to get this second bearing out here so i’m, just going to so there’s.
Our bearing bag opened up guys i’m i’m impressed 40 dollars and you’re getting all this stuff, that’s really impressive, Dobro! So how the bearing installation works, Ti si, getting a medium sized bearing a large bearing and then this little washer thingy here so first up, you want to take your original stock, bearing that goes on the farthest side. There that’s that still goes in the same way. Then you take the second biggest bearing and you put that in then this thing lift up goes on top of the bearing there and then last but not least, you take the biggest bearing that the kit comes with and you’re just going to pop that in there Just like that and finally go ahead and put that cv drive shaft back in so here is the finished product of the trio steering knuckles for the max and guys. Let me tell you these things are awesome, the look the uh the center driveshaft, i mean not: standard drive, shaft cbd, drive, shafts, tu je, nice silver bearings. This amazing, blue and silver etched steering knuckle and then these awesome spline hubs on the end guys. I am so happy with this. I will be definitely buying more products from trio in the future by the caster blocks and the rear hub carriers. That way, we are just all over them out. This truck is going to be a serious powerhouse one day, make it success on a hobby wing system.
I don’t know, but first we’re going to start with these parts here and oh my gosh i’m, so impressed with these now i’m going to put these back on and then i’ll catch you up to that Music. Nwo, just a quick uh tip when installing this link screw back into the um steering part of the steering hub out here since you’re going metal on metal, i put a little dab of blue loctite on it, but that’s just my personal opinion and back to time Lapse all right guys. So there is the fully finished product man. Those things look awesome on there guys imagine blue caster blocks as well. Oh my gosh blue toe links. Oh my gosh man. This truck is so cool, so easy to work on too it’s a little bit hard because filming can get annoying sometimes, but if you weren’t filming guys i’d say take five minutes. If you really tried it’s, not that hard at all i’m going to do the other side off camera, because it’s exactly the same process but i’m going to put links in the description where you can get this hub from totally recommend it. I bet this thing is going to be absolutely bulletproof like i swear, but if you shot it with a gun, the bullet would just bounce back it’s just wrong, but anyway guys this thing does look. Awesome can’t, wait to go test.
