It will be a good idea to apply some oil before putting the set screw in place as the plastic is hard and it would be a tight fit

When you put the gear holder on the chassis, it feels great!

C hub

If the C hub isn’t the perfect size, you can use a hairdryer and heat it up for 3-5 mins, then let it cool down

It should turn back into 21mm and fit the steering block. It should not be a problem for most people

 

Front arm is always smoother if you sand it down a little

Arm Pin (42mm)x4

Front universal joints are smooth and fit, but the pin seems a little too small to fit the front pool

Steering arm is combined with two parts. The join is strong and fits nicely and it doesn’t seem to be fragile at all!

Driver tips – Swap the position of the front and rear camber and add 1mm o-ring to the front camber. Entering corner will become more aggressive.

Feel free to try standard first.

Servo mount set – Simple and efficient. Make sure you use a short screw (3x5mm) for the front at the holder. Place the battery holder on the right and check your servo size.

Front arm assemble – It would be better to have a 2mm o-ring at the front of the A arm. Change the steering arm o-ring from 2.5mm to 1.5mm or less will be enough
