The O ring fits fine, you just have to take your time and work it into the groove in the adjuster nut. As far as the servo file the mounting holes close to the servo body then file the ears flush with the mount it's just that simple.

I run a Sanwa SRG-HR in my Evo without any issues. Run the block in the short position.

I had the same issue with the spring retainer o-ring, it was a MAJOR pain to get installed.

I get 38.87mm, or 1.530" - I measured from the leadering edge of the back screw to the leading edge of the front screw on the chassis bottom; I didn't explicitly check, but I think the arm hole spacing is the same.

I picked up a P12 Evo and everything went together nicely except the front steering tierods. The ballcups and pivotballs are incredibly tight and is creating a lot of friction.

Is this normal?

I built up 3 kits. About half of the front ball studs were snug. Give them a few gentle squeezes with needle nose pliers. If they were sloppy, guys would have even more of a fit! At least you can tune "snug".

a little, try xenon rde-0043, you will never use a regular ball cup again.
