Here is some update on the Mini-T parts. I FINALLY got them together except for the steering knuckles. I haven't open the package for the knuckles yet because I forgot how they are attached to the hubs. This Mini-T have been on the shelf for about 3 years.

Anyways, the rear end was worst than the front end. I don't know how these parts got out, but they are terrible. The rounded areas on the arms were the main problem, they prevented the parts from fitting together properly. Then after I got them to fit together, the movement wasn't smooth because the mount would scrape on the arms during the up/down motion. So AFTER all the filing and sanding, I got them somewhat smooth. Then I attached their alloy motor plate onto the transmission case and bolted the arms/mount onto the bottom of the case...then the arms on the motor plate side was scraping the motor plate! So after more sanding on the plate, the parts finally fit like they should have out of the package!

I got an email from GH. They offered to send me any parts I needed because of these problems for free. But since I already had gotten them to fit, I didn't need them. But I did tell them the other problems I experienced. He said he will look into it, hopefully they do fix their stuff because their parts do look nice, if only they work just as good.

There's some service....

gotta say the parts for me have held up so far.... I came around a corner and punched it to make the quad and my pinion came loose on the motor. I hit what is dubbed the money tree (power pole)... didn't cost me any money though luckily.
