Are all of your 8x4 bearings rubber sealed? i got quite a few metal shielded ones even though the instructions lists them as B84RS (i assume RS = rubber sealed)

One inventive guy in Russia made Rc Angle Meter:

This app helps you measure camber and caster angles of your RC model.

Advantages:
1. The angle displayed is always less than 45 degrees. (ie, 4 degress instead of 86 degrees, and 2 instead of 92)
2. It is possible to quickly set zero orientation and measure angles relevant to this zero. (if position of setup board is not absolutly horizontal, and the sensor is not always working perfectly.)
3. Adjustable speed/accurancy.

Can anyone tell help me with a set up question. On Denis Zuykov and Ivan Laptev setup sheets I'm curious where the top links are being mounted. Are they mounter in holes where you would normally screw in the top deck rather than on the metal brace ?? Looks like there 4 and 5 holes on the set up sheet but there are only 2 holes in the brace.

Please help as Id like to get this finished tonight

Thanks

If you look on page 38 of the manual you'll find the steps to install the optional longer upper arm set. I think that the kits were shipped with both the short and long upper arm sets.
