Do you have a part number for this? Thanks.

Was the set screw on the rear CVD loose ? Seems that is what is causing the problems locally .

Creates enough slack that the pinion moves enough under hard excelleration . All the guys that had problem noticed the set screw was loose and once they used non-kit threadlock , set screw stayed and no problems with stripping rear gear since then .

Also Grape told me to add a couple drops of bearing oil to the CVD's as well so they don't dry out and bind.

Alrriiiiiightttt.....

I have to vent a little...

For $650 this kit SUCKS... I AM NOT IMPRESSED!

I'm finally building mine and I'm not even halfway through the darn thing and so far here's whats been wrong...

1) Front center driveshaft was BADLY bent just sitting in the box.... In trying to straighten it out it broke in half... OK Fine... Stuff Happens. I bought a bunch of spares when I bought the kit... I can continue on.

2) Just in general the fit of some of the plastic parts leaves something to be desired.

3) The hardware is obviously cheap... I'm using brand new Hudy wrenches, and the hardware just doesn't fit quite right. Like the hexes aren't really deep enough.

4) I'm to the steering rack section of the build... Get halfway done with that and I come to a step that needs some little washers/shims/spacers.... Look all over the place... They aren't in the kit. So at this point 2 stinking .1 shims are whats keeping me from going on any further.

Now I've built probably 50 kits in my hobby experience... Probably 30 of those have been in the last 2 years.

I know how to build a kit and not to loose parts...

This is rediculous for the amount of money this turd costs.

It had better drive like nothing I've ever driven before or I'm going to be VERY unhappy.

So here I sit... Can't finish my car because of half a cent worth of shims being missing in the kit.

I wonder what else I'm going to find wrong as I continue with this build...

End Rant.

DavidR- that is really unfortunate to say the least bud. I have never heard of ANYONE having issues like you are having. I built my 2010 spec car 3-4 weeks ago and it was a joy, everything went together perfectly a lil tight but tight is good. If i were you I would call the us distributor for the car and complain as you did hear, and I am sure without question they will send you the parts needed.



Briguy is 100,000 thousand percent correct, if their s play on the idler gear by the grub screw coming loose it will in turn cheap the shit out of the diff ring gear.

DavidR: sorry to hear all the trouble your having. I had a few issues, but didn't go the $650 kit, just bought another $150 dollars of hopups to put on the "R", including the RCSrewz kit and everything went together pretty well (only minor filing required to steel crush spacer edges for them to fit onto axles and polishing supension balls that drop into alum suspension blocks). Hope they get that stuff to you soon so you can hit the track, the car is absolutely fantastic to drive!

I'm not sure what's going on to your kit but I assure you you will like the car once it's built...

davidr all i can say is it only takes one guy to come to work really hungover or drunk to ruin the whole works. im guessing the guy that packed your kit was one or the other. once you get it together everything will be great, on a tight/technical track this car will out perform anything out there w/ the proper setup.
