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!

In these type of designs I just use a rat-tail( circular) file and slightly open each hole on the a-arms until the ball and cup can literally just slide in. That frees the ball up. Then I just glue the cup to the arms and put the oring on just for added security although not necessary.

When you need to change them out just use a little debonder on them to remove the ca.

What's a better battery choice for The F6? LP 3900, 3600 or should I look at the standard size shorty 4400 and up? I'm looking to get some fresh packs for this car.

Does the car require low profile shorties or regular ones like we use in the b6/b64?

On your ride ht .? The axle inserts that came in the kit should lower your ride height to the setting you need. If its not exactly the same amount just try it and adjust higher or lower depending on what you need from you're testing

Early release photos showed the aluminum pieces different shades of blue. Curious if all the blue pieces are the same color and not a shade off? It's like AE blue to JConcepts blue if that makes sense

What length sensor wire are we using assuming recommended location? Also is there a kit for the forward servo setup? Parts seem pricey when you get them seperatly.

All same color. Just a guess but could have the early photos been CGI. I've learned that is used far more then I ever thought.

Motor system arrived today.
