      Thanks Dave,

      You have hit the nail on the head. This is exactly the information I
      needed. If they are ajustible, than I can do that! I have a feeling that
      my sister will still want to sell the little car anyway, as she is more of
      a Toyota Mom.

      I am happy to hear that the set up is ajustable, so I will go and buy a book
      on it. If I can pick up the car for a decent price, I will get it for my
      daughter. These things don't scare me, like my sis.

      Best of Luck!
      VME Barry
