I have my F1-2016 on the way, can't wait! Does anyone know of any place that has the aluminum chassis and lower pod plate in stock?

I just started building my kit and the pivot balls are nice and free untill i push the cups into the arms and then you can not move them. Ive popped them in and out about 20 times and still tight as can be. Any suggestions? Thanks

Kyle had the same issue. He had to slightly ream out the carbon arm until when the plastic ball assembly is inserted the ball moves freely. Once this has been achieved. Remove the plastic ball assembly, place CA around the carbon hole and insert the plastic ball assembly again. This will insure they stay in place.

P12, P10, F1 use the same front and side spring. We're headed to the track today. We'll measure one and let you know.

The height of pan car front springs is of little importance as the collapse constantly....

That is until they stop collapsing ... And become perfect..
