Has anyone else assembled one? There's a serious issue with the front steering. The steering rack binds on the front bulkhead. Could I send someone a pic so they can post it.

Hi! It's always nice to have detailed pics of a build, especially for a car that just hit the market..

Eye Candy for everyone

I am even getting upload file failed when I try to upload pics from home. Try taking pictures with a different device. Something is going on with the file. I thought my work computer was the issue but it's not working at home either. I can upload pics with no problem normally. I have just uploaded a different picture from my computer to test. Maybe the file size is too big?

Got one picture to upload finally. I think it was the file size.

It's my friends car. And he's a HB sponsored driver. He said he'll talk to his reply about the issue. Everything was assembled according to the manual so it's a problem they need to address

I hope this is not the production car that is released to the public if the steering rack is binding. I can only see the picture and think I understand the front of the ackerman plate is hitting the diff case. That shouldn't happen. I hope you get a good answer soon. I was really looking forward to seeing another successful GT car on the market. There are always a few hick ups with new cars though. Nothing we all haven't seen before.

This is nothing new for HB. My steering rack rubbed in the same spot on my buggy, I just removed a little material from the case.......takes a few mins, really easy to do before car is built.....

I understand it's easy to remove material, but a production car should not get to a consumer in this condition. HB should just make a new aluminum ackerman that has material removed shipped with the kit. Or, more costly, make a new front diff case. I know no kit is perfect, but this disappoints me. I have a D815 too and didn't have this issue. Maybe I was lucky.

I was also thinking the exact same thing. This is a production screw up. We shouldn't have to remove material from anything like this . Especially the diff case. Hopefully they can figure something out. I think if the chassis had less kick up it would be enough room. Not sure what they could do.
