The rear wheel lays down and the dogbone goes...
This week the Raider, last week, the Vorteks.
Where?
Who knows?
This sure isn't Where's Waldo...

Hi

Time to get the ball studs with the longer threaded shafts so you can put a lock nut on the other side. Or use a captured ball end and use a long screw with a lock nut.

have you done the camber link mod?
I don't know if I will do it but this happened to me today too... the run before today I hit a fence and it happened and today it was the opposite side!

The ball stud pops completely out, meant to put that in the post.
What AJDragon was saying.
Playing Where's Waldo on a grassy field for a dogbone just sux.
Time to get out the calipers and do some measuring! ;)

On my granites it switched the camber to the other side and use capture rod end no bolt needed as of now! I used the traxxas slash camber rod on my sons granite the ball end in the rod ends is a bit bigger and fits a little funky but works fine for me!
