Introduction

RC Cars are built tough these days. They are also often built to be very powerful and eventually the power in these vehicles can out pace their toughness, so a part will break! A-arms, being the part that takes the most beating because they are the connection from the tires to the chassis, are typically the first to go. There's no need for your day of fun driving to be ruined however by something that can be fixed so quickly and easily. Don't take days to let a hobby shop or friend do your repair, do it yourself!

Tools

Parts

    • Begin by setting the truck on a large flat service with it's shell off.

    • Hold the tire still and use the 6mm nut driver to remove the tire nut.

    • Remove the nut, tire, hex hub and drive pin and place them together so they won't get lost.

    • Use the 5mm allen wrench to remove the screw from the hub carrier and A-arm connection.

    • This screw will not back out all the way by simply turning it counter-clockwise. You will want to turn the screw counter-clockwise until it stops moving, then pull the screw the rest of the way out.

    • Rotate the hub upwards and away from the A-arm until the drive-shaft disconnects into two parts.

    • Use the 5mm allen wrench to remove the screw connecting the A-arm and the chassis.

    • This screw will not back out all the way by simply turning it counter-clockwise. You will want to turn the screw counter-clockwise until it stops moving, then pull the screw the rest of the way out.

    • Once this screw is removed, the A-arm will be free from the truck! Put the new A-arm in place of the old one and reverse these steps to re-assemble.
