The Build - Part 3
The Team Associated F6 has 3 different steering options; 2 bellcrank setups (long and short) and a forward-servo system. The foward-servo system has been used by a lot of other manufacturers, the bellcrank setup is relatively new. For this build, I'll be going with the kit setup – the short bellcrank system.
Build Notes: None.
Step 1: Assemble the bellcrank arm. Press the 5×8 bearings into it as well, blue shield facing out (I've shown one in and one on the bellcrank post).
Step 2: Pop the assembled turnbuckles onto the bellcrank.
Step 3: Attach the assembly to the chassis.
Now, that sounds easy but this step will certainly test your patience. I mean really. If it's making you mental, you can remove the top plate to make it a little easier.
Once you've wrestled with that, pop the other ends of the turnbuckles in place.
Short, simple step. Time to move on to the rear suspension!
