It may be time to have your eyes tested, because those two front wings are so vastly different, that the only explanation as to why you would say that is that your eyes don't work.

Cav is sponsored by Up Grade, I would be willing to bet that the front wing is from Up Grade, or maybe ae.

Oh, and news flash, he ran a front wing at the worlds warm up too. He runs a front wing on high bite astro (likely an idea he got from some astro specialists at the warm up race), and noboby bats an eye, he runs one on high bite clay and wins the nationals, and its the end of the world.

Everyone report back on how many front wings you see this weekend at the races. Subsequently how many people will complain that lexan isn't durable enough, so they're gonna run a Mini E-Revo wing in the front to match their heavy Rubbermaid garbage can lid S-Workz rear wing.

Oh, and one more thing.



How does that one song go? Oh yeah, "It's all just a little bit of history repeating".

I don't think he was saying those two were the same. He was merely saying "I don't know who makes that one BUT I also saw this one". It looks like the front wings used at nationals were the center portion of an LMR wing cut down.

People ran front wings on the original gold pan RC10 in the 80's. I did for a while.

Default Steering problem

hello everyone,

I just built me B5M and noticed that the steering would go full to the right and then on all the way to the left, I did adjust my end points and at the point of the knuckle touching on the right it is 85 and the left is 124. I have adjusted the toe and that is good and when I built the kit the turnbuckles were the same length. So do you think it is a servo problem or what? everything was built correct but this is puzzling to me. Is there any test on the servo I can do to make sure it is set right? The servo worked great when I took it out of my TLR 22 buggy last week, so I have no idea what is going on.

Did you set the subtrim to 0, EPA set to 0 and installed servo horn straight up and down or close to it? once installed, trim the servo horn is straight up and down and then make sure both turn buckles are same length.

Default steering problem

yes I made sure the EPA was at 0 and made sure everything was right, the servo horn is straight up like it is supposed to be. That is why I am having problems figuring this out. Could it be the 1MM washer under the ball stud on the servo horn? I checked it and it looked like it wasn't hitting anything.

hey, just noticed you are close to me. What radio and servo? Also, if you are getting full let and right lock, dont worry about it. I have rarely seen a car with the same left and right epa numbers. Not without the ability to change the length of the steering linkage.

My epa settings are always within a couple from left to right. Go through the manual and double check everything. Set everything epa and sub trims to 0 then install the horn per the manual.

Do the turnbuckle lengths matter?
That's how I adjust my steering arc & toe. Mine are 26mm and 30mm between ball cups, but on the set up station, the steering arc angles and ackermann angle difference are equal on both side.
