My Team Associated SC10.2 FT build is moving right along. This bag didn’t provide any challenges, but it did provide a couple of talking points. 1) Getting the Front Hinge Pin Brace in place on the chassis, took a little muscle to get it to seal properly. 2) The Front Body Post has 4 holes in it, the 4 holes allows you to adjust your body height. The holes are drilled on an angle, so make sure to get the angle matched to the Body Mount, or the screws will not be able to go thru the Body Mount and Body Post. 3) The Ball Cups are not threaded. If you tap them before you try to install the turnbuckles, it will make this process easier.

Building a Transmission can be a tricky, to make things easier, I like to use plenty of Diff lube to hold the Diff Balls to the Diff Gear. I also use it to hold the Drive Rings to the Ball Diff Outdrives. I use black grease to hold the Thrust Balls to the Diff Thrust Bolt I was surprised to find rust forming on one of the Ball Diff Output Drives straight out of the box. This was the first time have encountered something like this during a build, I did not contact Team Associated, I am just going to deal with it.
