They are optional and not in the kit.

Basic assembly complete. Have to get steering lined up. And fill shock. I'll be ordering motor/ESC in about another week. Still a month or more till group starts running.
Build took much longer then expected. Guide wasn't well done. Maybe to those with experience with this style they might have been clear. But this style is new to me.

That could be interesting. What kind of weight difference would it have over original.

Generally have never had a problem building any kit in the past 20 years, but this thing has me stumped. Has anyone else had an issue with the front suspension build step four. When I assembled it, the servo mounts are too high, and not in contact with the chassis and they also don't line up with the holes in the chassis.









As you can see from the photos I have the top plate just resting on the car because the holes don't line up anywhere. I'm not sure if the front bulkhead is too tall, or the standoffs are too short. Also either the chassis holes are wrong or the servo top plate is wrong because none of that lines up. Please someone teel me I'm wrong because I rather it be my mistake then have to deal with finding out what parts are wrong and chasing them down through AE.

You slide the servo carbon piece forward and down, then screw it down. The bulkhead slots in the two holes.

Awesome guys, I'm glad it was me and not the kit. That step is pretty bad in the manual though. Thank you!

It helps when you have built an xray first, since that part is the same......

Mine is almost done.
I'm going to run for the first time at 360 raceway tonight.




I also found few fitting issue on the front suspension, somebody needs to make that ball outta Aluminium IMO. until then I filed them down then polished them. moving well now.

Few tips I can share while I'm doing that is, I pulled out my old trick to popped the balls in and out easily without damage them. as shown above

Also, even though it shared same part # there is 2 different part as shown bottom of the pic

And that manual!!

Question: how do you achieve 3.8mm RH in the rear? mine seating at 4.2 with -1mm Rear ball bearing housing. maybe because of the brand new tire?

Happy Motoring!

Basic assembly complete. Got few things to get adjusted. Still deciding on color and order motor/esc.
