hey guys,
the kits are all shipped the last week, depending on the forwarder and some custom specials they should be in stock at the distributors warehouse within the next days.

Hello,

My car is almost ready and I must say the quality is super I simply love it. But nevertheless I have some small issues. The brake pads rub on the brake disc a little bit and the plastic tube that holds the brake wire is touching the plastic gears and pushing the break pads on the disc? How can I best solve these problems? The tool to tighten the flywheel that I used for my Serpent cars doesnít fit can you suggest some tools that would be worth buying! And how do I tighten the shocks I canít tighten them with my hands since they are slippery from the oil. I noticed that there are two small holes where the shaft goes in, is there a special tool for that?

Thanks for the answers!

Cheers

hey there,
the shocks can be tightened with the smae plier that you use for the retaining ring of the wheelaxles like willy said.

The rear brake pads are pretty close, thats right, but it should not touch the brakedisc. I think you can cut a little bit of the brake pad, or just try it like it is.
After the first laps you can check again, and if needed cut away some material.
But normally it should work.
The tube for the brakewire should be installed, then you can use a hairdryer to bend the tube in shape. That works perfect, i just forgot to put it in the manual !!!

Alex

Thanks for the answers Alex.

I have another question. The upper front Wishbone and the hinge pin fit very tight!? When I assemble it and tighten the screws nothing moves. I tried to widen the hole with a special reamer tool but it didn't work so I just glued the screws with thread lock and tighten the pins just so far the wishbone can move.

Cheers

This is what I found on the V8. The caster shims are very tight. I like this, no slop. Just a bit of sanding on one of the shims got everything moving perfectly with no play.

I simply took the upper front wishbone (40 91 02) and pushed the upper front hinge pin (40 91 03) into the hole and the pin sits very very tight! The pin can not rotate freely in the hole! Is this normal?

hey,
of course the weight depends on the equipment you use.
So you have to add the information completely.
Body, rims, battery, receiver and servos.
Patricks car is with the Audi body, Enneti light rims, KoPropo low profile, Ko spectrum receiver, the NimH battery and the personal transponder something around 1690gr.
We will have some additional weights as soon as we have some response about the weight.
We have enough space to add some weight, as so can see in the chassis, in the front it is already prepared to add a weight, and of course the battery tray could be replaced.
So we have the the lowest point of the car to add the weight !!!!
As soon as we know the medium drive ready weights from more cars we will do the weights.

regards

Alex
