Believe me Iím not crazy here and where not talking about a rookie here I know my mechanics just to give you a little info on myself, Iím the guy who builds Alex Lopezís, of Team Xray, Cars. This is really pissing me off that a $400+ car is not perfect from the factory.
Please let me know if anyone else is having this problem.
No one can solve this but you. Start with the lower chassis and start putting on one thing on at a time and checking tweak after each component goes on until you find the one part that causes the tweak.
It could be as simple as one screw hole on one alloy part that is crooked due to a part shifting in a CNC machine. There is no way a quality control person could spot a screw hole being off a few thousandths.
Once you find the problem I am sure HB will take care of it.
This happened to my Mi2's two years ago and it it ended up being a rear diff housing that had a top deck mounting pad that was a few thousandths low. It could have been some momentary tool chatter or an interruption in cooling oil flow that caused it. I had never seen it before and have never seen it happen since.
I asked myself to warranty the part for myself and I did...lol!
