I believe a light spring allowing the wheels to just float (lightly touching) on the track surface would be how I would set this front end up.

Yes it seems to me that the guide flag will move up and down along with chassis as the suspension reacts to bumps. Best to eliminate the suspension by using light springs that allow the guide to be vertically stationary and planted in the slot.

Just to let anybody here know this is too rich for my needs, I am out.

This may go for $100+ bucks after tax an shipping.

Guys,

Sorry to drop out over the weekend. Nice to see all the discussion though.

I honestly do not know who made the guide.

The guide is a Revell according to http://slotblog.net/...-pickup-guides/. Steve is a godsend to us slotters.
