Anyone's 2 cents will be appreciated!
From what I gather, this is your problem:

Remember on of the first steps in the assembly, using C/A glue to attach a rim on the oneway pulley???
Well, you either have to remove it with Acetatone(I think that is what you call it), or buy a new pulley!!! Also you have to use a few 3mm shims or a 3mm locknut to lower the ball-ends on the steering arm (in order to prevent them from hitting the dif case) and change to the 12 ackerman!!!

Some nail polish removers contain a good percentage of acetone, so maybe some of this will help free the pulley rim?

Yes, they are MRX4 shocks. I liked the Kyosho shocks, but they leaked, even after a rebuild they soon leaked. I put the Mugen shocks on and have not had to do a rebuild yet. A friend of mine put the Mugen bladders in his Kyosho shocks. He said it fixed the leak.

Well, guys, I emailed Pro Shop in Japan and they're out of WC kits. Anyone know where else it's available? I REALLY want that kit

Yes, they do have but they are so much more expensive than that of their Japanese counterpart. Is there another Japanese shop I can get the WC from?
