Thanks Guys,

Nova:

Where are you measuring the ride height? Front or rear sides?
I measured from the sides from the front of the chassis to the split by the pod.

Are the flex plates the same in the rear?
I put in what came with the kit I will measure them to make sure that they are the same

Ride height spacers, are they the same?
Same thing here what was included in the kit I am using both the thick and thin spacer in the front both sides are the set up the same

Measure from the hole in front of the car to the wheelas and see if they are the same....
Help me here are you talking about the center balance hole, Checking for width?

RobK
I didn't check the springs after I put them in only before. They measure the same on my calipers but I didnít look at them after I installed them. Maybe they are sitting on the pivot ball wrong or collapsed

When I get home tonight I will have to give the car another looking over.

Yes, the track width....
Check the rear pod droop to see if they are the same..
The springs have already been mention... Have to tried the quarter balancing test on the front?

There are a few things you can check. Make sure that the pivot balls are fully seated and that the flange on both sides are facing the same direction. There may also be a slight variation in the springs that allow 1 to sag more than the other. Other than that,it may be that the balance is off on the car. You want the electronics to balance the car. If the car is not balanced it will sag one side more than the other. Let me know how it goes.

The pivot balls... I should have thought of that....

Remember Racers, always check that your balls are fully seated in the right direction before using them...

Can't wait to see that in the owners manual....

Here is your answer. .020 is .5mm .013 is real close to that. You need to check and make sure that there is no burrs on the arms. Maybe even sand them lightly on a flat surface to remove the high spots.

I also recommend measuring the distance from the bottom king-pin e-clip to the bottom of the lower arm. That will indicate if something is bound up (such as the king-pin in steering knuckle if it is not free moving). Also, the top suspension pivot can get rotated when setting camber and cause the king-pin to lift, which causes the suspension spring to compress.

If I'm not mistaken any Orion drivers running 1/12 at the IIC will be using Vortex brushless motors rather than V2's.

Hey randy,
