Anyone else having problems with the pivot balls and bushings in the front arms? All of the ones I have put in are bound up and they won't free up very well. Makes the front suspension about worthless. The worked on these for an hour last night and I can't get them free at all.

Last road car from Losi was the 1/6 scale Audi. Then they pretty much abandoned us owners.

Haven't assembled mine yet. There was a post couple pages back about this I believe. Waring about installing them upside down

Yes, they suck. They're nowhere near as free as what you'd expect from building L4 & R5 front ends.
The note about directions is this:
The bottom pivots are different from the tops and are directional. The tops are bidirectional, but the direction the cup sits changes by location around the arm. Neither plays into the fact that the OD of the pivot ball seems incredibly close if not the same as the ID of the cup.

The CRC, Schumacher, Pit Shimizu and Tamiya TCS tires are all 571/572 tires. Schumacher I believe now owns Pit Shimizu.

Ride - Use soft fronts, supersoft rears.

Sweep also makes premounts. I haven't gotten them to work, but haven't put any time other than a couple break in runs.

Any pictures? Have not started assembling mine yet. I'm trying to picture this but I'm new to this style of car.

What body is the one on the artworks? I just realized I needed a body to run this baby.
Also does stock 88t spur gear works? or need to get a small one for 25.5 class?

The front pivot balls were tight on my kit, but it was pretty easy to fix. I lightly sanded the holes in the a-arms where the bushings go until they slid in easily. Then I lightly sanded the outside of the pivot balls. It took a couple of tries on the pivot balls to not sand them too much, but now it's perfectly free.

The 13 and 14 will work. The Montech 17 should also work. I believe the Montech is what XRAY use in their kits.

I'd like to say yes. But I'd be guessing. I bought the body a month ago cause I thought migh go out of stock. Should have done that with motor/esc. Noticed price seems to have gone up on few system.
