Nut was tight and bearing is fine. Brakes were dragging, I was actually messing with this when I noticed it. I've had to keep adjusting the brakes lately due to rubbing and noise. I tore it apart last night and the bearing was not seated all the way. Pressed it in and reassembled and it was fine riding today. The bearing was so far out the upper and lower chainstays were rubbing on each other. Going to talk to my LBS see if they had any issues with this. I'm not really sure what would cause it to push out, it went back in nice and snug and no signs of damage around it.


I actually locktight and zip tie my mino chips. I zip tie loops right through the bolt perfectly.

Never had any issue over 4 years with mino coming loose even though been warned about them.
I find with Trek rear caliper can have a very limited adjustable range.

I've never had a issue either but know a guy that had issues with them. I flip mine frequently so its cheap insurance.


The brake issue was from the ABP bearing working out. Its been fine since I pressed it back in though.

hey guys new to this thread, but long time member of the Session owners thread, have a 2015 slash so not the drcv specific one, and looking into shock options. Really wanting a coil with a lockout, if its a possibility, im aware of the dumb slash specific shock size. So im wondering what options you guys are running, and if any of you are running a 8.5x2.5 with offset bushing or what . any help would be awesome

running a CCDB inline and 2mm offset bushing. Shock doesn't have a lockout but it has a climb switch which is way more useful unless you're powering up road climbs. Way more active than any air shock.

So are you running a 8.5x2.5?
