Build like the instruction manual tells you, then use that video

The king pins will move in the front. Buold it with wheels on then push down on the chassis, you will see the movement is correct. :D

Hi,

when building centre pivot always build and tighten screws with pivot off the car. This is easiest way to check. When fitting to the car leave screws that hold side links in place on chassis slightly loose. Then tighten each screw on pivot and side links while keeping chassis and pod straight. If you tighten side links first then attach pivot you will find the side links can be slightly off making the pod movement stiff. Hope that makes sense, difficult to explain without showing :)

I always have a small amount of up/down play in pivot ball.
