Nice to see someone building a desirable car like a Kinny to actually run.
XX CRs drive so nice,too.
A very confidence building car to drive.
Maybe you could think about using a stock,or polished motor plate,instead of risking scratching up the rare blue kit one?
I am jealous as hell of those rear hub carriers!
My Kinwald has every Trinity part they made for it...Apart from the rear hubs!

Thanks for the comments.

You can find the rear hubs on eBay for about US$9.00 from a seller in the UK.

The motor plate is already scratched pretty badly on the underside so I have no worries about making it worse

Thanks to a member here I have the Trinity shock bushings to install...going to try to get it done this weekend along with adjusting the slipper and diff after having run the car a few times now.

Also scored a bunch of sealed Novak GP 3300mah matched 6 cell unassembled packs. I do not need all of the sets so if anyone is interested send me a PM.

Photos of the Trinity shock bushings installed. Also a brand new rear shock tower after the original cracked in a parking lot mishap.

If anyone has new blue lock nuts for the shock bushing screws, MIP CVD rear axles or stock front axles I am interested.

I fear they will scratch when you get the car set up? Just like blue screws.

My thought was "too much blue". And the shinny ones also match the CVDs. Good point about the scratching on install too.

I suppose I can just hang these blue ones on the wall and admire them :mrgreen:

Time for an update...more Trinity parts added. New polished motor plate in place of the BK blue one. TBG body and wing for shelf mode. Also installed MIP ball bearing steering kit. Just ran it about a week ago, so the proline dirt hawgs and associated screws on the undercarriage remain in place.
