Fox front arm fix?

Recommended Posts

Hey all,

I'm back in action, Tamiyawise anyway. I've got my original Frog and Fox put back together and running. WOOT!

Thing is, on my fox on the lower arm in the front, where the shock attaches, there's a crack where the screw is attached. I remember reading way back about a fix, and even seeing pics showing how to replace the stock screw with a bolt and nut setup, putting less stress on the part. I've tried searching for it, but came up empty. Any tips or fixes would be appreciated. I had it out on the track, and wow, what a dream to drive. Great fun.

Cheers,

Rob

Maybe try some strong glue in the hole then screw the screw back in?... would make it hard to get out, but thats the whole idea....

Well, I glued it up with jb weld epoxy. I'll drill or tap a new hole for the screw. Not sure if I'll put a screw in or drill all the way through and go with the bolt and nut.

I do the latter one with my Blackfoot rear sway arms. Works like a champ.
