Default flaws

#1 The screw holes almost have to be redrilled to fit the screw thru to get to the treads

#2 on step A5 inserting the treaded inserts for the steering. I had to take a rubber malet to get them in far enough so the "kick plate" screws would attach to the chassis

#3 The A arms. there was about a 1/8th inch piece of extra casting I had to grind down....


SO far I dont mind I think its fun. but for the price one would think it would come with a little better machine work/ moldings

The screw holes are smaller for a reason, offroad is bumpy therefore they will have a tendencie to come out easier. By making the holes smaller you have to use the supplied tapping screw for a tighter fit.

The other insert is tough as well, but its also necessary seeing how the entire front end relies on those 2 screws for flex on the top.

A arms, thats about normal, again offroad you see a lot more wear, so things arent of a tighter tolerance compared to onroad. Once you put it on the track all the tolerances go out the window for the most part.
