It's not really a machining error or anything, it's just that the block will hit the steering linkages if you raise it high enough with shims.

What motor are you running? Also, check back to page 102 I think and look at Hara's building tips on the diffs. I've had no problems with my diffs.

Do you mean to mount the shocks in front of the arms? Do you just reverse the directions of bulklheads and what not?

Do you have a pic of your PRo 4 with the modification on the shock tower?

That happend to me before when I first drove the Cyclone. I found out "my" problem. It was the tires. I had a brand new set of Rides 36's. Couldn't figure out what was going on. Everything checks out fine. My friend told me to change the tires and then it was hooked up! I ended up using my used set of Sorex 36's. Some times it could be as simple as that. The center line on the new tire sets throws the car off a little.

You can also check your droop and ride height. What oil in your shocks? Are they all evenly filled? Springs being to soft? Racing mod or stock?
