Yeah some guys said they did'nt have to do anything and some guys have to grind away lol. Do you think the difference is where the holes are in the chassis or something. I hate starting something and not finishing.

Default extra grinding

It's either that or the steering arms themselves came a little shorter...but I doubt that. I would have had to do some serious grinding on my f-block, so I opted not to do it.

Yep, that's what I had also, now see how much more your going to have to take-off for the ballcups to miss.

TimXLB I believe helped come up with the drill hole locations Maybe after he seens your pic, he can determine if the holes are in the correct location.

Considering how much time and effort it takes to grind down the diff cases, f-block and ball cups, is it really worth it?
I have a slightly older chassis with just the standard ntc3 holes and my swing rack required no extra grinding and to me works just fine.
is there any huge difference or improvement to be had from mounting it in the new place? is the difference noticeable to a slightly above average racer? does the difference justify all the work?
