My baja 5t race build
« on: April 27, 2017, 03:36:09 PM »
Thought i would start putting up the build of my new 2wd race build I'm going for the silver alloy not orange and while i am at it doing a few upgrades but nothing to fancy just want it simple easy and hopefully bit more robust.

Hey Nathan can i make a suggestion, with your clipless hubs where the Oring sits to hold the pin in place i would get some heat shrink hose and shrink it over top of the Oring this give you a more reliable ride. When i use to race my baja i used the vertigo setup which had an Oring to hold the pin in place, i covered mine with heat shrink because i was racing one day and the Oring broke which ended my race *crybaby*
