So I am up to the rear shocks on my new build of my first eb410. As mentioned before, I had a ball stud with defective threads. Now I found another issue with my kit. The spur gear has teeth that are not fully formed in certain areas around the circumference. 85% of the teeth look fine, but about every 20 teeth or so there are a few which are about half the normal height. It looks similar to a flat spot created by a pinion that spun on it, but the teeth are not flattened, they are just shorter than the rest. I haven't even finished building the car yet, and it looks like I will be making a second run to my local hobby shop for parts to replace the new/defective ones in my kit. Has anybody else received Spur Gears/Center diff covers which were defective? I will post a couple pictures tomorrow. This is frustrating. And yes, this is a brand new kit bought from it legitimate dealer, Factory sealed.
