I have a little play in the front hubs...I did shim the outer hinge pins to remove some of it...just enough not allow binding up...
the play from the bearings so far is okay.

make sure to check the top ball stud to make sure it doesn't get loose....had one go bad after I got clobbered on the track.

The rear brace is intended for use across the (2) front screws of the rear arms.. You will need to replace the standard mounting screws with shorter 6mm screws so that the brace can be fastened through the (now open) threads of the ballstuds.. Using the included spacers and screws, mount the brace.

Yes, the reoriented holes are intended for the lower shock mounting.. Hope it helps..!

You can order them thru RC Discount. Phill keeps the Schuey stuff in stock. I highly recommend purchasing the wild things shock mounts, and also the new 2 mm chassis with the braces. It really makes a difference. Especially on asphalt.
