Looks like a nice place to play. Good job on putting it together, and I'm glad VP sent out replacements for you. Appears to have been an isolated incident.

Thats a misprint in the manual. Should have been IRC00211 - Incision 90mm Scale Shock Plastic Parts - Vanquish Products

Thanks for all your feedback

Thats correct. All components that come from Taiwan are re-checked when they arrive. We do final packaging here in Sacramento before they go out to customers/shops.

The components made in Taiwan are shipped to our HQ in Sacramento in the final packaging. Any products manufactured outside of the US is required to state the origin of the product when imported. In this case "Made in Taiwan" on the shipping box. Each box is then opened and packaged with all the components made here in the US.

It really is an impressive undertaking for two factories to work together seamlessly and bring a product of this nature to market. We always appreciate the positive feedback

We use the same procedure. If by "impressive undertaking" you mean "logistics nightmare" then I concur.

Any chance you'd care to share anticipated annual volume for this model from your business case? Understood if not, just curious what the market is supporting for such an elite example within the hobby.

Not having any idea when my backordered Q-series lights will ship, I installed 10mm LEDs in the interim. And 5mm LEDs in the rear.

Looks great. I like your sticker choice on the rear quarter panel. I dont think anybody has taken a photo of the included decals yet.

Someone has now...

I used 2 stickers, one for the tailgate detail, and one of the "banned" CA emissions stickers. I will me using the interior stickers, just haven't done my interior yet.

Excellent thread and build! Love the color choice, that copper looks great.

Iím having issues with my rear axle assembly, the front one went together like a breeze. Great fit and action everywhere. The rear one is very tight when I try and drop the gear assembly in. Iíve redone it a handful of times and still get a tight fit that causes binding. Everything spins freely outside of the housing but I canít tell if itís an issue with the housing or if perhaps one of the bearing carriers are slightly off. Either way, Iíve reached out to VP and hope for an easy resolution.

Sounds like the same issue I and others have had, so hopefully VP support will get you sorted quickly as they did for me.

Agreed , Michael emailed me back within 1/2 hour of opening for the day. VP has shipped replacements out already.
Shipper said Monday, Oh well I have the Body and interior to play with.

At some point, should this be moved to:

?

I agree. With so many of these released now, we need a place to go to with our builds and questions.

Interior update. It's mostly there. First serious attempt at an interior, and also first time using shapeways, so definitely learning a few things. The paint on the door panels should be the same color as the pain on the lexan, but isn't, I guess due to the texture on the 3D printed parts? I like chrome paint pens... Used flat clear over the seats and am pretty happy with those.

Ryan Gosling agreed to be the Driver (true story). He is almost certainly too tall for the Origin however.

I have the Knight Custom gauge parts and LEDs for it, but am pretty unsure how to make that look right (i.e. how to make gauge faces such that just the correct parts will light up). I also made an unfortunate choice for the ESC position, so the wires interfere with the passenger footwell. Have a bit of work to do before I can fit this for real.

Now with infinitely more DIG! No changes required to the driveshaft, so that was a pleasant surprise.

I'm using a 138 oz high-speed servo, so roughly in-line with Harley's recommendations. It's surprising to me how much it can flex the servo mount if trying to engage the dogs when they aren't aligned.

Neither the instructions or Harley's installation video suggested any lubrication, and I'm concerned about sand getting stuck inside it, so I initially left it dry. In this configuration the dogs usually get jammed against each other, which allows it to function fine (4wd, dig both work, but only through friction, the dogs aren't actually engaging one another) but leaves the servo straining, so I was concerned about burning it up. I'm guessing this may get better after some break-in. However it finally occurred to me that there are other types of lube besides grease/oil , so I tried a PFTE dry-lube spray on it, which seemed to help. Hoping to get it out on the rocks this afternoon!
