I would say I have about .3mm slop between the blade and the ball with new parts. The plastic blades are slip fit with no slop with new parts. But the alloy outdrives do wear on the torque sides and get loose. This can inhibit suspension travel under power.
On another note. Try measuring rear toe on each side with the car assembled. Many cars have a chassis issue requiring more shims on the LR to get the same toe on both sides. This can cause some real hidden handling woes. But not all cars have this. Must use a good set-up station to find like a HUDY.
I do like the car despite some quality issues. it can be made to work well.
