These photos show the latest work on this 1/8th scale Alfa Romeo.
The front axle was a huge pain. The toe-in of the front wheel on the car is *way* too much. Getting this adjusted involves a careless bent on both sides that is very tricky, and can only be done once without almost certainly breaking the metal parts.
I go one side really. But the other is still angled more than I'd like. I don't think it will be too obvious though.
One of many problems with Pocher kits "out of the box" is that the car is too heavy for the solid plastic leaf springs provided. They just bottom out. Most people support the car with stands when displayed. And I am mostly building this kit "as is" for the most part, without a lot of customization. But since this is a functional issue I am using steel springs.
That's the breaks.
Here, the front end mechanical details are all installed. This includes brakes, suspension and steering. The steering and suspension work well. The front brakes on these cars are notorious however. Mine come really close to being functional. I added and modified a few parts to eliminate the play in the system that usually is the main issue.
The linkage from the pedal to the pads all works now. I think once the rear brakes are in, and everything to adjusted, I stand a good chance of everything at least moving when the pedal is depressed.
