Default TM2 Rear with Mini Pins v BRCA Box

The TM2 rear end in Standard set up with Mini Pins will not fit in the BRCA Box

Can anyone think of a solution as I can't see what can be narrowed

Its things like this that make me question the tm2 other cars go straight in its only team c cars that dont go in adding bits here taking stuff away there dont follow that part in the instructions
Although im sure its a good car and everything but seems its not finished paying over 200 for a car i would expect it to be finished i could understand on the x2c tc02c it is for sale for around 120 but not when team c are asking assoiated/ durango money

All the tm2s I've built were finished just fine, it would seem that the car is built to the maximum allowable dimensions including the wheels, but they didn't take into account the big overhang that mini pins have on the wheels, mini spikes and ballistics will go straight on with no size issue. Everyone that I know who has bought one is more than happy to tweak the odd thing if needed, because they know they're about to drive an awesome car.

Didn't X-ray have to bring out a repair kit for the xb4 to stop it falling apart?

Oh really? How do you build a carbon fibre shock tower wrong??

I respect X-ray greatly for realising their kit had big issues and bringing out a free upgrade, but if it was just down to how people were building it they would have just put a new instruction manual out!

Not really John. Upgrade pack to address some customer concerns. I wouldn't get confused with that one.
