We are aware that the supplied rear caliper parts of Stages 38 and 40, differ to those shown in the magazine instructions - please be aware that the supplied parts are correct, but it is the instructions in relation to the assembly and fitting of these parts which is incorrect, (the instructions went to press without them being updated with the revision).

The official build diary has now been updated with this revision, which in basic terms means that the rear calipers are now on the forward facing side of the rear discs (which is an accuracy revision), rather than being on the rearward facing side as noted in the instructions. We will in due course be providing an instructions insert regarding this update.

The updated images for stage 38 and 40 can be seen here - http://forum.model-space...spx?g=posts&t=15564

Thanks
Steve

Just for further clarity on this issue here is the official insert to explain the difference between the parts and what is shown in the instruction images -

Nearly 2 years later and this insert is not being put in full kits! I have had to search to find out why the instructions look wrong.
HMS Victory, Spitfire, MP 4-23, D51, T72, Honda CB750, Harley Davidson, Hayabusa, Ducatti 1299, E-Type, Mustang and Porsche 911, VW T1 Samba. Many others from other suppliers on the go!
