Default Problem With Kyosho RB5 Rear Arms

Hey guys I'm in the process of building my new RB5 and got to putting the rear arms together and I have way to much play in them. I put in the bushing on both sides and I checked to make sure they are going the right way but there is still a lot of play. Anyone else have this problem? Thanks.

This car has alittle play in that area when new but over time you will see that is a area that loosens up. The block on the chassis side the bushing resides in wears, I recommend you replace the block every other time you replace the bushings. I also recommend getting the white delrin ones as they last longer.

I used a thin ballstud washer and placed it behind the arms. They will be a little tight, but like 10 seconds with sandpaper frees them up perfectly.
