Help!

NEWBIE HELP WITH BROKEN PART ON RC10T4.1 RTR brushless


So, I recently like few days ago, got back into the rc world. I got myself a T4.1 RTR brushless. Stoked about it. I have a few questions though. First, it looks like I hit a curb and broke the dogbone on right rear and broke on of the large ball cups on right rear camber. Are these an easy fix?? Second, can someone explain how to replace dogbone? Third, once that stuff is fixed I wanna do some offroad/jumps and what is best springs for that I know Team Associated has like 5 different color shocks and I want ones best suited for jumps. PLEASE help me somebody, it would be much appreciated!!!

Thanks!!

You can get those parts easy it is a 10 minute fix. Remove the wheel and remove the camber link.(the rod between the wheel hub and chassis). Take out the old dog bone and put in a new one. If you broke the ball stud in the shock tower you may need to replace that. All of the springs are suitable for jumps. You may need to use a stiffer set of springs or some heavy shock oil. It sounds like you just hit the jump to fast and you cartwheeled it. I can't remember what color is stiffer Red I think. Try That first.

Anything RPM will be good.Extra a A arms and some shock towers. It is really a good all around truck.

There's a good chance you didn't actually break the dogbone, if you broke the upper turnbuckle then the dogbone would just fall out.

that makes sense than. the turnbuckle didnt break but the ball cup that holds turnbuckle did. i could not find dogbone so I need that part any way. I ordered that and ball cups.

To replace dogbone, does it just snap in place? It doesnt look like anything special to put in.

If it's a true dogbone then it just slides in. If it's a CVD then its attached to the rear axle stub. From what I remember, the T4.1 RTR is a dogbone.
