Is the break pad sitting right against the bearing block? Nothing should be hitting anything.

The connectors ARE an option part, they dont come in the kit.

Thats why I asked of the pads was sitting right against the bearing block, its a bit difficult to put the pads on with the spring and in the spacers, I figured yours was hanged up on the spacer.

So the new rear end only works with the new front end. Then why do they release the rear end but not front? Seems stupid.

The new rear will work without the new front and the new front will work without the new rear either.

when installing the new upper front suspension brackets, it comes into contact with the shocks "adjusters".

remedy is to put spacers behind the front shock tower?

or did i install it wrong some how?

If I am not mistaken, #1 provides more turn-in... #2 provides more high-speed steering... i may be wrong.

so your track layout will determine which (#1 or #2) is more suited on the left / right

Question. Figured Id built my throttle servo in the laydown position. Doesnt seem to be parts for it in the kit however?
What Im missing is the shims holding the servo mount but more importantly the turnbuckle for the linkage?
Im also missing a total of 4 m3x10mm screws in that bag.

Seems like I also managed to get a used fueltank inside the bag, cause its full of left over fuel haha

Every new Fuel Tank have left over residue, that happened when they test the fuel tank (just to make sure there is no leaks), it's weird that you have hardware missing as every kit I build for the customers have a lot of leftover parts.

I do have leftover parts just not the parts I need
Its one turnbuckle for the throttle linkages and 4 M3*10 screws Im missing. I know they arent there Ive been looking closely in every bag.
Doesnt matter though, Im occupied with the offroad atm so I havent really had time for my 966 yet.
Ill put an order in for all the new parts plus some options and the missing parts once the new front end is released.
