I had all the right parts in my kit. Its a nice kit but it's not xray quality. I had to do alot of hand fitting for the suspension parts. The arms will bind and the front lower arms needed alot of work. Get a 3mm reamer it helped me alot. I would not recommend this kit for a 1st time builder.

The finished product is beautiful.

The choice to make arms with very thiny tollerance on arm pin is a choice.
The builder can choose the PRECISION of the ARM PIN TOLLERANCE.
This is make to have the max precision... not couse we are not able to make a larger hole..

Wider tollerances help the buildings but the resulting precision is reduced and then require decimal shims to correct it.

All can be imporroved but when we talk about plastic is better to have a tight arm to ream than a wider to shim.. or in some cases... glue the pin on the arm as we saw in some cases.

for any more info's.. do not hesitate to write us.

take off some material from the FRONT of the arm...then you will not need to twist it in under pressure.
The space is needed for clearance and free running of the arm as Capricorn wrote befor.
With the correct lenght it is still thight but much easier.

Regards...MARTIN

Im sorry but when you are paying almost 600.00 for a kit you should not have to sand cut or any of the above i just don't get it.it looks like a great car but what happens if you are at a big race and you break.just my two cents

Nobody said that shaving the inner hole of the suspension parts leads to failure at a race...

You should see this as a driver preference, some people like their arms to move a bit, some people want it free moving but as tight as possible. To achieve both, Capricorn makes the parts a little tighter, so you can shave the holes as much as you want.

I think he means if your at a big race and you break a arm. You grab a new arm and you have to sand it down before you install it. The solution would be to pre-sand and pre-ream your arms.
