Calm down turbo. I should have taken the pics with my crappy phone camera so you cant enjoy the high res of Panasonic Lumix
I am using the gunmetal 3.5 block because the Le orange ones are not available yet. I have also opted for the Serpent alu lay shaft holders which are also not available in Le orange. If you look really closely too you might see that I have used Xray(shock horror) flat spot pins in the drive shafts.. There is a bit of play in the steering but nothing I would consider to be a concern so I am not going to bother trying to un-slop it until i've given the car a dozen shake down runs and I rebuild again.
As said before the only dramas i had in this build were the front right arm which needed to be heavily reamed(not sure if this is because i am using the 3/2 toe blocks in front) and the sway bars are a bit stiff but after reading The Stiles tips on Petite I am going to switch to using the larger sway bar guides on my 1.6/1.4 bars. I will switch to the hard arms eventually and hoping these don't cause me any binding issues in the front.
On another note I cant fit in my Revtech 6000mah packs under the rear top deck without causing tweak when flexed
Looks like im going back to Thunderpower
