Hi,

Please ignore the poor quality pics below and the mud on the bottom, that is an experiement. The reason for this post is I need some info regarding the tracks on the Dragon Tiger.

I thought the guide horns went *outside* the idler wheel, but Dragon doesn't appear to have set thing up that way. Pics confirm my assumption is right, but dissasembly and double checking things shows that is right too.

So the question is, am I missing something? Has anyone built a Dragon Tiger using their tracks and had the guide horns in the proper *outside* location?

If so what did you do? I *think* the idler will have to be moved back some required just some cutting and sanding to do, but the position looks correct. Has Dragon simply messed up the tracks?

Thanks for the input folks.
Cheers,
Donovan

So the deconstruction begins. It appears the rear portion of the idler is too big and must be thinned. So far so good, I will post pics once I've got it done.

So here is a pic of one side corrected. As of now both sides are fixed and the tracks are back on. I've started the weathering process so more pics later on that will show the new track positions. Much better though.
