No no binding there. Just seems the gears meshing is a little tighter after the Turtle racing parts were installed. Figure everything will wear in or I'll burn up a bearing somewhere in the drive train . I'm hoping for everything wearing in .
Oh it's getting closer . Throttle linkage is next then the 5t side parts . The new pipe will be here tomorrow .
Looking good 👍 are you running the Scorpion unlimited solid chassis? Cuz I have it and yours looks like it

You planning on running into a few things ? :ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO: Actually it can't be helped sometimes .If I were to do it again I think I would go with a different company for the stiffener . The Scorpion forces you to to cut the tab on the plastic piece that attaches to it and the bumper . Not a big deal but they could have milled/punched the square hole into it .

Yeah they should have, personally I wouldn't mind cutting the tab but that's just me 👍

Well, that's what USPS specializes in, being late and not giving a damn about your package 🤬. Beautiful pipe got there! Bet it will rip!

Actually this is the first time I've had some thing come late where I was wondering WTF. So i really can't complain .
That's awesome that USPS don't suck over there! 👍 USPS here sucks! Like there always late, or sometimes sits for a day or two and don't care about the package. Once I ordered a phone and when it arrived they pretty much tossed it on the porch, and it had fragile on the box, I was too excited to care back then but if it was me now I probs would said something. Good thing now is that the house I'm in now has one of those community mail boxed so they cant throw stuff. Still there late or let it sit for too long.
