Doesnt look that bad, you could always just strip the anodizing if you didnt like it..

Thanks for responses - mystery about that pre-load. The fact that the chassis is built 'square' and true must help though.

Now I've just got to hit the track!!!!

how do you countersink the holes?
thanks
Yes, I drilled a couple of holes. Since I don't have a countersink, I used a bigger bit, then a Dremel w/ a sanding/polishing bit that looks something like /\ to finish it off. Take a close look at the picture, you will figure it out.

EZ Off works, there is also some stuff that is made just for stripping anodizing, and it wont pit the aluminum after the anodizing if stripped, only problem is I dont know what it's called, but do a search for anodizing materials on the net and you can find it.

Hi friends. greetings from Malta.

At the end of a busy week building cars in a hurry - why do guys always want a car all built, tried, and tested in 24 hours - I found time to build a CGM too.

Must say I'm very impresses. Whilst it does carry alot over from the successful TC3, it looks so much beefier all round. And I like some of the touches too. I like the way the motor mount spreads it's load right across the chassis (an improvement over TC3), and I'm impresses with the small amount of slop everywhere. I like that dinky rear bumper / grab handle too.

There isn't one piece of plastic in the whole kit - yes there is, the body mounts and bumpers, but that's all, the rest is all lovely graphite.

It's an easy build and get's my vote for the best value for money car on the market.

Regards

Joe from sunny Malta.
