Default question

hey guys I am just wondering when building the car how many of the spacers under the front steering assembly do you use for carpet? I am using the big ones and the big phillips screw is coming through and hitting the upper suspension arm and pushing the arm up a small amount. Thanks a ton for any help

I run the shims that come with the arms. There is a small one and a big one, I run both... I also add 2 .01" shims between the pivot ball and the top of the knuckle and 3 on top between the pivot ball and the e-clip to add a little more steering to my car and take out slop. This front end setup with magentas all around gives me a ton of steering.

Generally you will need the thick one and the thin one and some finner adjusting shims.
This spacing is used to set ride height so will vary with front tyre diameter. You want to be starting at about 4mm ride height for most circuits.

Many people like the Futaba 9650. For the screws and spacers... start with both thick and thin. That will get you close to ride height with new Jaco tires. I also have some shims that I've made out of Lexan that I can give you once the season starts that really makes it easy to get the right height. If you are going to run your front tires really small, you'll need some 1/2" screws for the front of the arm to use when you only have the thick spacers. They're not really needed though because tires that small start to get a bit twitchy.

If you have the extra money get the machined aluminum spacers that BMI makes for adjusting the front ride height. These make setup much easier.
