So when I built my car the direction indicate that the front steering ballstuds show go on the bottom of the steering block. But when it is set up this way, at full turn, it runs into the front bulkhead and causes the car to dip... is this normal because after searching tons of pics, half the cars have the ballstud on top and half have it on the bottom. I've gone through every inch of the installation guide and can't find where I may have gone wrong. At the moment I just moved them to the top even though the instructions indicate otherwise... don't wanna mess up a good thing though. Sorry for long post, just wanted to be clear. Thanks!

In the pictures where people are running the ballstuds on the top, people have flipped the stearing blocks from right to left and vice versa. When setting up the stearing following the instructions the stearing block need to go into the car so the block runs to the high side. There is a good picture on page 16 step 6 of the manual. Hope this helps, if not post a picture of the front of your car and maybee we can better help.

Keven,

Thanks. Sorry for spelling your name wrong. You would think If I was going to screw up it would be with your last name. With a quick google search I did find that I am not alone.

Hey guys, looking at purchasing the TC6 soon, and was wondering when they will be back in stock. I have looked at Stormer, tower, and A-Main Hobbies and they are all showing on order, etc. Any idea when the next batch will be in? Thanks.

Ken

Default Part question

Hi All,
Just started building mine and look to be missing some of the o-rings. I have a set of red o-rings from by B4 just wondering if anyone knows what size the shock collar o-ring is?
Thanks
Wayne

Edit: Sorry no need to worry I went through all the bags and found them in another bag.

Thumbs up integy alum front steering blocks ???

I figured it out ,had the steering blocks upside down lol.
As for the build 2 things were no good so far ,one cva axle when put together would not rotate
smoothly and one of the threaded top shock caps was stripped ,it will not lock down tight to the shock body
??????????? I am still very happy with the kit ,I hope AE can do some kind of ? warranty and send parts to replace the bad .
anyone know or have a connection (link) for AE.
Matt

They are not available yet. Hope AE releases them soon, car can become a paper weight pretty quick if those become useless
