How to put universals on your Falcon

Recommended Posts

So. To fit universals on a Falcon you need the following:

Tamiya OP-790 Drive cups for DF-02
Universals for an HPI Nitro RS4 wide. Rear 52mm pin to pin. The axles on the fronts use a larger diameter inner bearing and may not work.
6mm drill bit

In this case I chose MIP 1182 shiny bones.

First you need to drill the OP-790 to 6mm

Then install.

Hi 8rad1,

Do you know the size of the pin that joins the shiny bone to the axle? I bought these to do this to my Falcon but they did not come with these pins.

Thanks.

I am not sure. Any CVD rebuild kit for a Tamiya touring car with 5mm axle should work. I will measure the pin but it may be a while before I get my hands on a caliper.

Ahh, good to know. I need a new top and bottom front end parts for mine and spent ages bridging together rear shafts that work. Looks like I have a few more parts to order for my winter rebuild.
