Default CVA Build

Question on this build... I'm building the CVAs and the cross pins seems way too loose to me. Are they supposed to be the exact same size as the wheel hex pins? I'm wondering if they slipped me 4 wheel hex pins and skipped out on the cross pins altogether. If this is as intended, what's to keep the cross pin from just falling out? From what I see, nothing.

Cherry-keep the great thoughts/comments/info coming--no reason for people to make derogatory comments about you answering a question--those are the "ones" that tend to bring the forum experience down.
Back on topic--when the heck are the flat front arms gonna be available?!?!?!

well your battery is 100 grams lighter right there. And I know I have some extra wire because I left it longer purposely for the first little bit until I know that I'm leaving stuff where it's at.

You're also running a low profile servo and I'm not. Between that and the battery, there's your difference there.

When I build a 17.5 car, it will be under weight and have a lightened drive train.

I also took the alum bell cranks off. I can't get the screw to stay threaded on it. Keeps backing out even with thread lock. I have to think about how to make it work. For now it goes in the box.

A few issues with that I guess, going to stay away for awhile plus don't need weight.
