The dogbone is the driveshaft.

The A Arms are the plastic parts that connect the upper wishbone to the bodymount.

When mounting the rear anti roll bar, first put the 2 blades into their aluminium mount (the part that pivots on the bearings). Then you can either pop the anti roll bar track rods onto the blades or attach them to the blades first and then mount them to the lower wishbone.

I see from the picture that you have the anti roll bar track rods mounted on the new outer most hole. This could be the reason it doesnt mount? See if you can mount it first to one of the two inner mounting holes first.

Also just to make sure that you know that the anti roll bar connects through the opening in the top wishbone?

i think ive solved it i disconnected the "pin" that is connected to blade and the other mountpoint on the other place...

it was very easy..

but i got some shims/orings left.. and some screws.
dont know what to do with them hehe
maybe something will throw of the car when i am driving or something...

hmm.. my rearbelt is very slack.. i have the belt tensionsetting as "default"
maybe i should tried "tightest"

but i dont know a solution for easy change that belt tension without taking the whole car apart

Hi guys, first try in 1/8 class here
anybody has an easy method to "reset" the MAIN needle of an ZX21 DS2 to "factory settings" (if there is such thing) ?
Although i had "marked" the original position, i mess up counting when trying to "bench run" her.
what can i say i did a silly mistake and i dont expect to be the last...

The main needle should be flush with the housing, the low end needle should stick out 1-2 mm.....
This is a rich setting.....
