finished the chassis last nite.
still a few tweaks i need to do... most important change the spacers (washers) around the rear diff. its rubbing slightly.

all in all, i love this car. it went together so easily. much easier than any tamiya kit ive ever put together.
here are some poor pictures.

I think this is the translation:

"It looks like you are using universals in the front...correct?
How about in the rear....are they dog bones or universals?
Thank you.
I'm still looking to see if I am going to buy a Zero S."



I think that is what he meant

thanks for the translation. yes it has the universals in the front and dogbones in the bag.
i typically use one or two shock seals inside the drive cups for dogbones so they dont move to much. this kit recommended i use 4mm pieces of the center tube cutouts from the bumper foan inside the drive cups.
it works pretty well and looks to be a great cushion. granted i havent driven it yet

Looks like you have the 'c' hubs in backwards (wrong sides) from the pics. Could be just my eyes but it doesn't look right.

Nice build too...

Yep should be marked L & R (eg 4L, 4R) and the markings face front of car.

Cheers
