    Hello friends,

    I've recently purchased front and side windshield for my new baja 5b. The problem that I am running into is that the front windshield needs to be modified as the throttle linkage rod gets in the way. I've looked at HPI and other Rovan RC baja videos and do not see same setup. On U-tube, I've notice the rod ends at the servo arm and doesn't protrude out like mine. I was wondering if anybody else has this similar setup from Rovan where the brake and throttle rod are attach to aluminum clamp block. The problem is that it gets in the way of the front windshield and without me cutting out slot on bottom R to allow rod to travel, the setup won't work.

    See attach pictures. You can kind see the throttle linkage block, not the best angle shot but you can make out.
