I trim (round)the inside of the back of the wheel with a deburring tool, Had to do this with the xray, this may or may not be the same on the MI3. But I will make sure to check, thanks!

Another thing I had a tough time with was the rear arms binding up but all I had to do is sand down one of the Qwik Clips just a tad and it freed it up perfectly. Other than that the kit went together great

Sorry about that.
