Next up... I promise! I'm almost done with it but I'm just trying to add a more realistic touch suspension-wise.

Man... love the first Subie, I had one for the longest time then I think I gave it away at one of our events.

hi optimaforever... again nice pics... was wondering though if you experienced any clearance issues with the tires and the rear fender...
sorry for pic size... that's what it looked in the autoscale case... yuck...
and this is what i did to remedy the 'look' click here i also noticed the same thing with the mazda bodies... but from your pics... they look good, clearance wise... what did you do?

Hey Herman,

Actually I think all the C9 suffer from this problem.
The clearance and the tires offset issue is a headache for each Autoscale.
Usually I remove the rear damper, loose the T bar, and remove the front suspension coil springs. That's for the clearance issue.
Then for the offset, I add washers on the shafts. But here this isn't enough.
The rear clearance is too huge to get rid of it with the usual fixes.

I don't race nor drive these cars so it's not an issue for me but what I did is:
1. dismount the dummy chassis
2. remove the front body clip from the dummy chassis (2 screws)
3. mount the dummy chassis upside down (that is, with the bottom turned above)
And then the clearance becomes kind of OK.
Of course, you can't store the Autoscale in this config, because the attach gets too far from the screws on the bottom of the Autoscale box.
My purpose was just to get the clearance OK to take pictures...

thanks for sharing your great tip... kinda relieved to know that i'm not the only who noticed it… just a bit annoyed that kyosho missed this simple detail on such wonderful looking cars...
