On the subject of the foam car are the top link positions any lower that on the standard EC towers? Or are they just the same minus the 2mm riser plates under the diffs, just wondering....

the alloy block markings are a little confusing as they are a legacy part from the offroad car. You must install them as Bob suggested, with the letters facing downward, and the rounded sides facing away from the centre of the chassis.

also make sure the hole for the hingepin is at the top side of the block.

Please note everyone: when building the kit from new
please dissasemble your CVD's lube them and use loctite on the grubscrew. If you havent yet done this please go back and do it.

They dont come lubricated, and the locking grubscrews aren't tight enough, causing the pins to work their way out.

The inner camber links are higher on the Foam spec toers than on the EC tower. This compensates for the lower drive train and lowered hinge pins.

I forgot you've got the alloy rear body mounts. You have a part number for those?
