I haven't found them to be very smooth or precise. I run futaba and ko pretty much exclusively.

Hmm, maybe i'll have to give a comparison to see for myself. I've got a Futaba, Airtronics, savox and a KO laying around...

Just my opinion. I know quite a few people who have had great luck with them.

In this post you seem to say to do the RF and RR bushings.

Thats what he thinks too

Mark
But then you say this which indicates only doing the RR for toe because you discount track width.

Simple terminology shouldn't be so hard. 4 bushings.... FF FR RF RR

Rear only means, the rear gearbox shims ONLY. Frontside of the REAR gearbox, and rearside of the REAR gearbox. 4 bushings total.

Doing the frontside only increases toe, doing the rearside only decreases toe. Doing all four together INCREASES track with as a whole.

I'm taking my time and have completed bag 3. I'm impressed so far with the apparent quality of componentry. I'd like to thank Kollarova, Petovska, Dobiasova and Spisiakova for their excellent packaging skills!

i took the amain win and fast lap last night. it was driving awesome but i did break something i thought was odd. The bushings that go in the front hinge pin holder had the side broke out of it so i had to put .5 up in the front and it made it want to spin out easy. i then switched to .5 out in the rear holders and went back to all 0 in the front and it had great turn in and calmed the car down a little also. I have a question that maybe someone can help with. Our tracks getting really bump and the rear of the car seems to be bounceing alot in the straight and i was wondering what is some options to fix this problem.

how much rear droop are you running? How many limiters inside the shocks?
