Slash 4x4 LCG Instructions Part 2

Slash 4x4 LCG Instructions Part 2

7) Locate the rear suspension mounts (2 pieces), rear gearbox block, and five 3x10mm countersunk screws.  Remove the set-screw from the suspension mounts and keep them safe as they will be installed back in later

The suspension mounts are designed to "key" into the lower chassis and secure them with the 3x10mm countersunk screw each with a drop of loc-tite.  The gearbox block also key into the chassis for good alignment and secure it with a single 3x10mm countersunk screw.

Locate the rear gearbox/suspension assembly and install the suspension arm and the inner hinge-pins on to the rear suspension mount.  Once the suspension arm and hinge-pins are in place, re-install the suspension mount set-screws with a tiny drop of blue loc-tite and secure the hinge-pins in place.

8) Locate the motor mount, center driveshaft, and the center diff (or slipper) assembly.  These three piece will be installed together and alignment of the motor mount and how it is screw into the chassis will be critical for the center driveshaft.  You will also need three 3x10mm countersunk screw to mount the motor mount.

First install the 10x15mm bearing to the motor mount from the stock mount.  Install the center diff (or slipper) assembly into the motor mount.  Press in gently and make sure the center diff is seated completely on the bearing.  Slide the center diff into the rear gear box.  Next slide the center driveshaft on to the front gearbox's spline drive hub.  Now bring the rear gear box up at an downward angle and slide the center diff's spline drive hub onto the center shaft.  Seat the rear gear box back in place and install the rear hinge-pin plate (stock blue piece) with a 3x15mm button head machine screw.  This is just to hold the rear gear box in place as this screw will need to be removed later to install the rear bumper.

now put a small drop of blue loc-tite and install just one of the 3x10mm countersunk screw from the bottom into the center screw hole of the motor mount (there are three of them) screw the screw in as far as the countersunk is flush with the holes on the chassis but do not tighten down all the way just yet.  Now install the two other countersunk screw just the same, all the way flush against the chassis but not tighten down all the way just yet.  These will be fully tightened once the upper deck is installed

9) Locate the graphite upper deck and the following screws: seven 3x10mm countersunk screws, two 4x12mm button head screws and two 4x16mm button head screws and the front sway bar mounts (if you plan on running sway bars) and the two aluminum spacers for the front gear case (these are the smaller diameter and shorter spacers in comparison to the steering bellcrank ones)

Put the two aluminum spacers on the front gear case and put the upper deck on the chassis.  The upper deck is meant to fit snug between the front and rear gear case, so you might have to push out the shock towers front and rear just slightly to get the upperdeck to drop in.  Screw the two M4x12mm button head screws on the rear of the of the upper deck.  Install all the 3x10mm countersunk screws on to the motor mount and the chassis posts, and steering posts, and remember to put a drop of blue loc-tite on these as they are all going into aluminum parts.

Once all the screws on the top deck is tighten down, go back to the three motor mount screws at the bottom of the chassis and tighten them down starting with the center screw and then the two on each side.  Lastly, save the two long M4x16mm screws and the sway bar mounts for the next step

10) Locate the sway bar mounts, the sway bar you desire to use and the two M4x16mm button head screws.

Slide the sway bar mount onto the sway bar as shown in the picture below

The sway bar mounts have a little stub at the bottom that will key into the hole on the upper deck, and install them in place with the M4x16mm button head screw.  For extra security, you can install a longer screw in this area up to 20mm in length.  

equal out the distance of the left and right of the sway bar and tighten down the set-screws on the sway bar mount so its just snug against the sway bar.  Check for proper sway bar movement
