Rick Hohwart ran the std steering at the iic and was very fast all week end.
It is more of a feel thing that something that will improve lap times greatly. I use a slightly shorter servo arm with the servo in the stock position and it produces the same effect although not as drastic.

Note that with Keven's setup, the belts need to be flipped which means flipping the diffs and re-positioning the battery.

You could always use one of those servo horns that act as a servo saver like the ones on pan cars.

Would this allow me use more of my servos throw? Right now I am only capable of using 25% of my servos throw. I would like more to have a higher resolution of steering.

Which servo horn are you using?

Here are various high res pictures from RC50 of TC5s. Couldn't find a high-res picture of Keven's car.

Yes.

if you look at this picture you can see the motor is inline with the rest of the bulkhead (also if you look closer you can see the top deck has been machined)

We've tried that over here as well, don't think the drivers took to it.

Is the trouble that once screwed in the pinion is sticking too far out? There is a brand of pinion (sorry not sure which) with two sets of holes for the grub screw and one of the holes is much closer to the teeth so you can push the pinion in more. Not sure if that would fix the problem or not?

If you're able to make it next Wednesday night, or maybe even sometime this weekend, I'll show you what I'm talking about.

Christer Anderson Did this on the ETS Kastellaun last year, It worked for him. I tried to do the same, but didn't work for me.

Best Regards,
