Step 27

Bag 60

Slide the heat shrink onto the spring and shrink it with heat.

Snap the pivot ball into the shock end.

Slide the springs onto the shock bodys and fit the spring retainers.

Mount the shocks to the chassis. Make sure the plastic guard at the top of the shock faces outwards. I like to mount the shock so that the vent screw faces inwards, this helps prevent dirt from collecting in the screw hex.

Step 28

Pretty much a repeat of the last step.

Bag 36. My kit was lacking the heat shrink to identify the shocks spring weight.

Snap the pivot ball into the shock end.

Slide the springs onto the shock bodys and fit the spring retainers. I wound down the preload nuts to take up the slack.

Undo the screw retaining the lower shock pin.

Once again, mount the shocks to the chassis. Make sure the plastic guard at the top of the shock faces outwards. I like to mount the shock so that the vent screw faces inwards, this helps prevent dirt from collecting in the screw hex.

Step 29

Bag 16

The DEX8T comes with two wickerbills for adjusting rear downforce. Mount the wickerbill to the back of the wing.

When removing the wing mounting screw, make sure not to lose the nut inside the wing mount

Mount the wing.
