Default Help on a Trinity Switchblade?

I have just about finished putting my new Switchblade together and I have a slight problem. When installing front tires the king pins are rubbing on the inner wheel wells preventinting them from turning. I have now taken the front end apart twice and put it back together, and still the same problem. This is the first 12th scale that I have built and am getting frustrated. Does anybody have any ideas where I might have messed up or where the instructions might not have been clear. Any thoughts would be appreciated.

two things to becareful of are the number is spacers you put on the top of the kingpin. and also sometimes you need to trim away a little plastic (off of the top plastic piece - I forget what the correct term is for the part) to get maximum throw. I have also found in the past that the switchblade does not like to have those actual little dots on the wheels that identify what compound they are (I just pull out a sharpie and write it on the inside of the wheel). If that doesn't help contact Bill Rondeau or Chad Phillips at Trinity or at their website.
