There seem to be more than just a few parts that are included in the kit that are not in the directions for any of the optional builds. I've identified what seem to be door lock s and some others. Anyone find this also and maybe help identify some of them.?
I like this kit even with a few minor errors in the instructions. I can deal with that but I wish they had included a battery and more of the carb linkage. I have the kit linkage installed but the set up from the carb with the springs and linkage arms etc is what I'm interested in. I want to get close to as right as I can. I haven't built a big kit like this since the 80's when I hacked together the big 1/8 Corvette that I wish I still had.
The tires in the Big Duce kit leave a lot to be desired- that IMO is the worst thing about the kit. They are inconsistant and have a couple bulges and thin spots-- anyone else have this prob??????? Some of the tread is taller than other rings of tread next to it.
This is on the outside edge of the tread pattern.on more than one tire . On a 1 to 10 mine are about a 5. So for the $80 to $100 that someone might pay for the kit- it's not good to have jacked up tires. But I'm handling it I figured out how to fix the bulgees by lining the inside of the tire with chrome duct tape and then pushing in on the buldge from the outside. It took about 80% of the buldge away. Either way I'm most interested with getting the carb linkage down-- Thanks all.......
Sorry if there is already a thread on this that I haven't seen here yet. I was in a hurry and just jumped on here to get the good info.
