I'm sorry, man, but I just gotta say that build quality looks absolutely horrible. It looks like they might have spent 10 cents at the most to make that. If I were you, I'd want my money back and look for other alternatives


Just my two cents, I know it wasn't asked for...

Is there a way to modify the stock runners to get the same outcome as a HV3?
