I'm not sure where you see a hole but that is my car and there is not one. I am going to put a hole in the rear shock mount for one

Exactly.
I just built mine and there isn't a hole anywhere for a roll over antenna. Strange...or maybe I'm missing something.

The circled bit isn't a hole for the rollover antenna?

That's not good.

Nope. That's where the al. Block for the chock screw goes in from the bottom

Nothing that I can think of other than JayBee's tip about a 0.3mm shim under the pivot block. The build is very simple and the instructions really are great.

Easier build than the RM-01 I just built.

Max K's baseline setup for Super Stock and Mod can be found on Arn0's site:

I polished any surface that could create friction drag - but absolutely not necessary, just something I like to do.

VBC, if you are following this thread, please make a shock mount with a rollover antenna. Or anyone out there in the hop-up world, that would be acceptable as well. Please don't make us run without our rollover antennas.

Dave Johnson has a photo on his facebook showing his lightning 12 and it's got quite a tall rollover antenna on it. Maybe he can explain...?
