I don't have boost timing (set at 0deg).
but I do have turbo set at 10 deg with a delay of 0.10s at full th and 20000rpm.

Scuffing I could try. The thing is that even on standstill will setting up. You never get twice the same nose lift height. It gets really hot really fast (I blip it for 1s max) .

The Yatabe Arena springs are a Yokomo brand of carpet and Astro stiff springs. I know Lee Martin carries them on his website amongst a few others.

Heres the deal dont use white alone. Need at least 1 red in the stack if not 2. Went through same thing on my sct & set it just a little tighter than you think. Theyre picky. Just a faint nudge of the nut will change it.

From the FAQ in the first post of this thread....

Q: I just bought the aluminum steering bellcranks. Where does this little washer go?
A: It goes between the bearings. It acts as a crush washer.

So this is obviously false since there is a 1/4" space between the bearings. So seriously, where do they go?

I didn't see where you stated which motor you are using? Since you posted, "the car would lift the front 1inch", I am assuming a mod motor below 17.5. For anything below a 17.5 you need one white pad, goes against the spur closest to the output shaft of the transmission. The other two pads are higher friction red pads and those go in the last two positions on the outside of the spur gear.

Sorry yes. The motor is a trackstar 7.5. I think you are both right on the red pads... I should've bought them.

The hard arms and c hubs are strong, but some at my track and myself included have broke multiple steering spindles. So I run all the hard parts on the front except those, but I do glue in the hard inserts to them.

The servo horn is the TLR metal horn for the 22. You have to drill and re-tap the hole for 3mm.

It goes between the bearings in the rack, not the bellcrank that you just purchased. They act as a crush tube so you can tighten the rack to the bellcranks.

Thanks! I kind of assumed thats where they went. I just don't think many people are rebuilding their racks when they upgrade the bell cranks.
