Cheers guys.
I haven't glued the tyres in yet Steve, I noticed after I did the pic lol. Will get them all same way when I glue them. Saying that I got tyres at work and have done rotation wrong before. Blushing corrected straight away though.

Did any of you guys have a lroem with the rear suspension. The instructions give a size for the tie rod to be set but at that setting the hub wont move up or down. I have set the lower pivot balls to show 4 threads.

I have. now ordered my next upgrades. Hopefully will work. I checked out the length of them to mine which they are around the same. They are orange ones that are coming. Hopefully same shade as the others.

Small update.
Had one tank of fuel through the Huracan today at work. Had a small leak of oil from the exhaust. I stripped it down and found a small hole in the alloy.
I used a small amount of Chemical metal and some high temp sealant on it. Now no leaks.

BigGrin The suspension on mine is very stiff but she has run fine like this when set up and that engines a screamer when she gets goingCool

Cheers Andy, Well guys here is the finished product. I have done a few tweaks , setup the steering and suspension.
I also drilled out all the air intakes for better airflow. I am waiting on the alloy steering rods and tie rods, also I have ordered one piece drive shafts for the rear. Then the next upgrade is a fast servo for the steering, possibly a Savox servo.
