This is a complete 28 piece strut front end kit for 5-bolt wheels (a strut set for spindle wheels is found here.
The nose of the 3D spindle is designed to center in Futurattraction's 5-bolt wheels and includes 3D-printed hubs to fit to the back side of the wheel.
3D-printed strut bodies
3D-printed brake calipers
Coil springs (.125" OD x .250")
PE caliper brackets
Stainless tubing (.033" x .75") (to simulate piston rod shafts)
Machined aluminum upper spring retainers**
**The CNC retainers incorporate a machined spring centering pad and a stepped hole. The upper hole is .020" diameter; the lower one is .033". This allows the builder to use the included rivets to assemble the upper strut. The .020" stepped portion of the hole can be drilled out, which will permit the stainless tube to protrude through the retainer, if desired, which may offer more mounting options. Doing this will permit the builder to use the full-length tube, otherwise it will require shortening.
Also available is a Wishbone set that will accompany these struts for the lower A-Arms.
Instructions are included, but if you want to get an idea of what's involved, here is a link to the assembly instructions.
Photo etched, stainless steel, 3D-printed, machined aluminum and steel parts.
By Futurattraction, 1/25 scale.

Front Strut Kit
I plan to use this on the new Pro Mod tube chassis I purchased. It looks like I will also need the Futurattraction rear 4 link kit as well to do it justice. I am excited to get the build started.
