Don´t know if Phil used this. I know you can find this at some instructions, but in reality I have seen this not really much.

Next steps

Front end
I have most parts including the early hexagonal turnbuckles for upper arms.
Missing currently are 8411 white eyelets for the upper arms.

Steering setup
4448 silver aluminium ball ends, 4404 turnbuckles and 6274 white ball cups are needed. Steering setup parts are not really important at the moment, could be added also at end of build.
White servo mounts, I have used ones in bad condition. Trying to get them looking nicer but also something for final setup.

Dampener section
missing parts are 4440 upper dampener tube, 4341 dampener springs and 4338 white locking collars.
Also a complete Delta style micro shock is needed.
Actually I should have such RC12LS Delta style shock and maybe the 4341 springs somewhere in storage, at least think so but can´t find them. I have some white collars what were intended for the RC12E rear body posts, not sure if there is any difference.

Other parts missing are 8185 white rear body posts.

For the diff I will use the Stealth diff. Not sure if this had been introduced to the public already in early 1995, but Phil was using this. If someone knows release date of Stealth diff, I´m interested to know.
Spur gear is dark colour so Kimbrough I think.

Thanks for offer, just found those parts.
Found also some other parts at the weekend so build could be continued.

When building the t-bar pivots before, one used plastic socket had to be borrowed from an other car.
These parts had been replaced now by new ones.

All parts for the friction damper gathered, ready to install.

Also rear pod could be completed now.
Phil used AE 4-40 aluminium screws for the upper plate, I had exactly four of them left.

Found the Delta micro shock, white ballcups and aluminium ballends are needed.
Most of the missing front end parts are there also, some small hardware parts still needed. Hope to find them in the next days.
Phil used a Stealth diff for sure, Stealth I uses regular RC12L wheels where the Stealth II require other rear wheels with different screw pattern.

it's looking good. keep up the great work.

by the way, you could also use parma (tamiya) adjustable body mount collars if you have trouble finding the associated collars. they're the same inside diameter as the associated collars.

Parts unpacked and prepared for building the front end.
Most plastic parts need removing debris from moulding process. Metal parts cleaned at the supersonic cleaner, as always.

Adding pivot balls to upper and lower arms.
You can do this with pliers or a vise, I personally prefere this special tool for not damaging anything.
Bought this in the 80´s and have worked for my for lots of cars.
