So as the car sits now i can assemble the rear of the car(bulkheads only) and install the top deck the chassis ends up with a slight tweak. If i install the front bulkheads and install the screws for the topdeck, the chassis ends up with a real bad tweak.
I've done everything to get the tweak out of the car, and it will not straighten out. Even to the extent of fliping the topdeck and using button heads to fasten the top deck and at that point the car bows the center of the chassis.
So at this point I am ordering all new bulkheads for the car.
So is this what I should expect from this car?
So my saga continues, as I said I ordered all new aluminum for the car to ride the chassis of the horrible weak it had.
Today the new parts arrived, I carefully went through and replaced ALL of the hardware and bulkheads on the car. with excitement I went through and carefully ran down all the screws to begin tightening up the chassis and topdeck.
Then laid the car on my Hudy setup board. and the car is just as bad as it was before replacing all of the parts and hardware on the car.
Just out of curiosity I placed the car on a piece of glass to ensure the board I am using is flat. I ended with the same results.
I also tried the Lowes do it yourself fix for the tc6 and flipped the topdeck and used button heads to fasten the topdeck. still tweaked.
So where do I go from here????? do i spend another 75$ on a new chassis and topdeck to try to fix this????
Will associated really be that helpful if i give them a call??
What would you do???
