In the last year I've tested 10 different Ackerman positions and the kit setup remains the best for multiple conditions.

Because if you don't raise at least 6 mm the original topo deck, you can't fit the servo saver 1/12 style.
I made by my self a total new top deck like a "square A" that don't need to raise
ciao ciao

Yes. You obtain a center post steering rack. But I made non for copy other Touring Cars, but to abtain more ackerman angle whit very long tie road e better steering precision. Finnaly it result in more quick steering response and more power on steering.
ciao ciao
p.s.: probably monday the pictures

Nothing of wrong. Simply once I removed all Losi steering system and I tried direct servo saver 1/12 style on the servo with direct tie-road on the front spindle and I prefer it. (less pieces is better )

take off the complete steering rack, flip the servo so the arm is at the front, attach servo saver and links, then raise, or cut a hole in the top deck to let the saver swing.
