droop wouldnt cause that, something else is weird. even taking droop screws out and shocks off, it will still not hit.

can we get a veiw from the front like both arms?

I have contacted Mugen and sent them pictures and they told me that my kit came with the wrong arms. so they r sending me new ones.

did you put the set screws in the axels to the wheels? if so, take the set screws out, the bearings hold the pins in. you might also have your front brake to tight from the start.

the pin that holds the two pieces of the axel can have a set screw and if you put the set screw in it, when you turn it can bind and not let it role.
