Default Need Help With TT-01 Servo Fitting

Hey folks.

I'm still a noob and have a second question in as many days.
I'll try to explain as best as I can and I've taken the liberty of adding
pictures to make it easier to convey my problem.

I've been working on my first R/C car; a TT-01.
Now the problem I'm having, is with the servo.

This, is my acoms as-16 servo

And this, is my Tamiya steering arm thingie.

And this, is the bridge for the ESC to sit on with the servo underneath.

Once placed together for the ESC to sit on, they look like this

The problem is, I can't get the servo and the steering arm thing (pics 1& 2) to fit together as they should....but, this fitting also came with
the set up.

The plastic cross looks like it should be used to connect to the steering thing
in picture 2, but I have no idea what the extra screws, plastic tie strap and rectangular black plastic fittings are for.
I have no idea how to fit the pieces together and don't want to screw things up.

Now could somebody please explain in real slow, special needs English to a
complete noob, exactly how I set this thing up so I can still fix the servo to
the ESC base thingie.

I apologise if I've gone the long way about asking for help, but this is the
first time I've ever built an r/c and I'm rubbish at electrics.
I'm so close to finishing it as well!
Once the electrics are done, I just need to secure them, put the wheels on and cut & paint the shell.

Any help would be highly appreciated.

The rectangle bits are probably servo mounts.
All servos come with a bag of assorted arms as well as little rubber grommets or flat pads to mount between servo and servo mounting blocks.

With the TT01 I dont think you would need any of the bits from that bag as they should all be in the kit.

The photo you show with the TT-01 steering rig looks like it has all the parts you need already.

In the kit on the frame that those parts came off there should be a few options for different servos.

Different brand servos all have slightly different splines so look for one that says acoms on the back beside where you fit the spline of the servo into.
(Thats part# D2 on page 12 of your manual I think)

Hope that helps dude

Thanks a lot for your help.
I managed to get it going using the white cross, but I think I'll go and look over the extra parts in the kit which were never mentioned int he assembly instructions.

I have a feeling that one of the extra pieces, will do the job!

Once again, thankyou for your help.
