It dosen't matter from a geometry stand point with a lay down servo as you can make both ways have the same geometry but it does matter from a weight stand point. The servo is a significant amount of weight and this will affect the cars setup.

Forward is better for carpet and rearward is better for asphalt.

With an angled servo the ball studs should be in front of the servo saver as this gives a better tie rod angle up to the steering spindles. With the balls behind the servo the angle is extreme and may hit the suspension arms.

My brother has moved into my old position when i moved up. He now helps keep the CNC's up and running and helps keep production moving. within the past 6 or so years, our company has about tripled in size when we decided to offer precision sheetmetal fabrication,government certified welding,painting,and centerless grinding to our list of capabilities. We have always been a precision machine shop, but the work we were getting required more.
The BMI area of the company was started by me about 5 years ago. It was something i did on the side for fun to start and as it grew i saw that i needed to incorperate it into the companies workload in order to keep up with the demand. Now that things have finally smoothed out and we were able to expand the company to accomodate all of our customers, It is all starting to work again as 1 company.

There was a pic taken of adrians car from this past weekends race. I will find it and post it in a few minutes

Where on Long Island was the BMI shop?

I'm curious if anyone has tested the BMI DB12R on carpet with the CRC Pro-Strut front end. If so, how did it compare to the ASC-style front end? What setup was used for comparison?

I had been running the CRC front end since the DB12R was debuted but this past weekend i put the stock front end on. the CRC front end was very smooth and I used the stock front springs which are the .050 I think and used the 10 degree blocks with no stiffening brace hope that helps

Can you explain the difference in feel from the CRC to the AE front? I have the CRC on mine right now but no place to run it so I have'nt been able to get a feel for any difference.

I drove chetons car with it on there and the car felt good. It was a little more pushy than the stock front end but still smooth.
