    RPM arms and FLM chassis

    Just wondering if anyone else has encountered the same issues I have. Bought FLM chassis hybrid diffs and RPM arms true track on rear standard on front. As I assembled this I noticed the front shock tower was leaning forward and the front RPM arms were rubbing the chassis now before I get my dremmel out I just wondered is this normal or not?

    Not normal, I have two FLM chassis with RPM all around including true tracks on rear, and they don't bind.

    Myself plus a few others that ive read have had that same problem. Mine was just a matter of shaving a little material off the back of the upper arm where it rubbed on the chassis on one side.

    Thanjs EMaxxBrushless I thought I was going to have to invest in a whole new
    Front hybrid diff it only leans back slightly just enough to cause it to rub, I'll just shave a bit off and all will be well. Glad there are others on here that have experienced the same pain.
