I would just replace all of the suspension plastic parts. They are pretty cheap and I'd bet that will fix it. Since it was pre-owned I'd bet those screws were takin in and out a lot and were loose to begin with. Once built you almost never need to take those screws out, so you should be good then.

Does anyone know what this is and what changes were made from 58368?
Do you have a part number for this? My browser is not putting up Japanese characters and so I have a jumble of question marks.

Just a lightweight version of the Swift body...everything else is the same as the standard Swift kit.

Yeah, I read the same translation from Google. There is that sentence: "As for the frame which becomes the framework of the chassis being light weight slim, there is a strength, the resin make monocoque type which also assembly cheapness pursues." Just wondering if they decided to release a graphite chassis. Of course, with this translation, who the heck knows what "assembly cheapness pursues".

And did anyone else think it was odd that Suzuki translated into "sea bass"?

Any advice on how I can cure this problem? (Can't have the car jerking to one side everytime u throttle out of a corner... )

Appreciated
If you are using the servo saver that came with the original kit the return sometimes get stuck and that will cause your car to steer right and not return
kindly check that and if it is the problem please put in a shim in between the screw and the plastic (shim)came with kit . Also ensure shim size is smaller than the outer saver.Also you can use tlarge tensioner that comes with Tamiya servo saver and wrap around original plastic servo saver to induce return.(TCS/TAC legal

If not above must be the outdrivers coming loose. check that and use CVD's

There is a fish called SUZUKI in Japan but different spell. Canít remember which fish but I donít think it was bass.

I just talked with guy who import pit shimizu tire to Australia and he said they are testing new rubber but not much success yet. They may have something by later this year. Good to know at least they are trying to bring tires back.

What *is* the black chassis? Is that just a newer model? Anything different besides the color?
