Quoted from crujones4life:
I noticed this plastic on my NIB Mando was raised up on the end slightly...they must have started putting something under this plastic to raise it. Build date 7/22/21.
I think that low hanging plastic also causes some missed left orbitals to. Interested as well!
Edit: Upon further inspection it seems the front of the plastic, near the spinner and that's screwed into the post, is higher than the back near the center ramp where it rests on the ball guide. So maybe you are on to something.
