because "ALL of THAT" takes about 5 minutes, and It limits how much you can get ripped off.

its apparent you have other issues with the 'CAR'

well truth be told, I had it happen to me when using one of the on line stores here in the states, I was assured, that it was impossible for it to be any one of his employees, and after having the process explained to me, it doesn't have to be an employee. however, it did happen, how I don't know. What I do know, there are people out there a whole heck of a lot smarter then me and they know how to do these things so i tired to come up with a way to limit my exposure.

These days its much more likely to be a hack of the software they use, either something is capturing the data in transit, or the database was hacked.

I just think if it was a hack then all of the purchases made on my card would not have been limited to the UK.

Nope I actually really like the car. I had two and tons of parts. Just couldn't accept the problem and lack of support.

others have seen them all over the world, the cause really isn't as big of an issue as why wasn't it fixed immediately, or online orders halted.

Default Defective Dual-Link Steering kit

I got my kit from Stormer, from a back-order. The carbon arm for the servo linkage wasn't counter-sunk. I thought "no biggie, I'll just throw a normal screw on there", but once I finished assembling the kit, it was clear that the cross-bar hits the screw head after barely any travel, so it's not useable as-is.

Unfortunately, I don't have a counter-sinking bit.

-Mike

That's a bummer. I do wonder if one has to purchase the entire bellcrank kit to fix such an issue or breakage, or if they will separate the parts out.

Default Help understanding setups and Chassis thickness

I have been trying different posted set ups. I Running a MI4lp and MI4. Both my cars have the alloy pivot blocks. If a set asks for setting based of the standard blocks how do I change my alloy blocks set up to reflect it.
Is there a conversion chart that I have missed?

Thanks

I assume 2mm is a tarmac chassis and the 2.5 is carpet?
