Default Kyosho FS build HELP

any one know where to use the silver ball studs vs the black in bag 2? There are a few silver ball studs and the instructions do not designate where to use the silver ones.... Any help would be appreciated

Thanks

When building a Kyosho, get several bowls to put all the parts in from each bag. Put the entire bags contents in a bowl by itself. You will be using parts from almost every bag in every assembly. Kyosho does not split the bags up the way some do. By that I mean, you will not just open "Bag A"and build a bunch then when all the stuff is used move to "Bag B".

This is one of my few complaints about a Kyosho. Once built its a great car.

Actually the main difference is not the thread but the height at which the ball sits, they're 1mm lower which reduces bump steer.
