Team Associated RC8.2 – Build Report – Bag D – Front Bulkhead Assembly

Now that you have gone through the differentials assembly, the front bulkhead assembly will be really easy for you. There are many new parts in this bag. First, the new revised shock tower has traded its blue anodized color for a simple black finish. A new B-Plate is also included. White nylon inserts replace the adjustable hinge pin bushings.

Another new part is the lightweight aluminum gearbox input cup that will reduce the rotating mass and will increase acceleration. The CVA pin retainer found in the previous kits is now replaced by a rubber o-ring. A rubber boot protects the CVA of debris and reduces maintenance. Apply black grease to the CVA for smoother operation. I’m still skeptic regarding the new “huge” rubber o-ring that is now used to retain the CVA pin. If Team Associated has changed the metal clip for a rubber o-ring, there must be a good reason but I prefer the metal clip.

The rest of the assembly is pretty much straight forward. Nothing special, just follow the instructions manual and you will be fine. Make sure bearings are fully inserted into the gearbox. Don’t forget to apply thread lock where indicated. Once everything is put together, make sure everything is spinning free.
