      bump steer even less attaching to passenger side with a longer steering rod, with some L in it, bump steer nearly zero. have had really good luck with plastic bevel gears, they do have to be pulled apart all the way, CA bevel pinion to shaft and pressed on all the way first, then shims behind both input cover bushings (paper punch and thin cardboard CA'd in, then drilled through after), with the plastic U-joint going on last, as tight as possible without binding. newer kits have the brass bevel pinion, is *much* nicer, even with plastic ring gear.

      You got a video on your blue truck and it's lift and parts? I love how soft that suspension is on that one! Way better than stock.

      I will be putting together a video on the details of that rig soon. But the shocks are still the stock ones just kept running penetrating oil down the shock shaft over time it got better and softer. The lift is like a block kit onto the axle where the shocks and 4 link connect and I didn't thread the shocks all the way for a little more lift. I'll get that vid up soon hopefully.

      How much better is the 370 motor over 180 or 130?

      if you have a newer kit with the lower ratio tan colored gearbox and 180 motor you're pretty well set for climbing steep

      As for your shelf truck
      RED BEAUTY in my opinion add some Sporter rims a couple touch of chrome and put her on a mirrored turn table with a couple LED lights to show off your steel drive shafts and stuff

      You try maybe change suspension? i bought " metal shocks absorber " but when i mount , they are very stiff - spring inside is very hard to pump ;/ i saw many ppl change for some oil shock but i cant find any 61-65mm with oil for 2,5-3mm hole ;c

      I have not purchased any upgrade suspension at the moment. I find them ok for what they are used for. In the future i might try some oil shocks. wpl might be coming out with new oil filled shocks.

      I was sceptical about that bump-steer fix, but it actually worked! Thanks so much. Now my suspension is softer and I get more flex!

      have had no problem with the plastic bevel gears, after shimming *behind* both bushings of the short input shaft. carefully pry shaft out of the small bevel gear. use a one hole paper punch for thin cardboard. use the bushings to press them down into place, then CA them. next is CA the bushings in place, then use a 3 mm drill bit to make the center hole through the bits of cardboard. with very long jawed needle nose pliers, carefully press the small bevel gear back onto the shaft. the shim behind the inside one is making tighter mesh of the plastic bevel gears, both bushings further apart the short shaft wobbles much less.
      best to do as you're assembling it right out the gate, but you can do it after, it's only 4 screws.

      if you have ball links and M3 threaded rod, whip up a steering link to hit over to the passenger/right side takes out even more bump steer, shrink tubing can hide the exposed threaded rod, a little nicer looking than throwing paint at it.

      lol naaw, that falls under heavy use and abuse! with plastics you DO have to back off the throttle as quick as the wheels start hammering, back up and alter your approach a little or you can shred them. it's usually the little bevel gear shredded for turning 2.3x per wheel turn.

      Maybe the plastic gears get too hot in mine? I take it on long 3 to 6 mile hikes. Back to back battery change and no resting in between.

      That's good advice! I did all those. Even went as far as buying metal shims that fit there. Unfortunately for me I must abuse these things. A buddy and I have no Iuck with the plastic ring gear. They do last a lot longer for us after shimming but eventually strips. I have had multiple runs with my blue c24(modded from the start with metal gears) seems to have done the trick for me! I am glad that the shimming works for some! Great tips brother!🤙
