What do the different servo positions front to rear do for the vehicle?

I run the servo forward to get a little more weight on the nose. Also get a little more Ackerman. This is what i use for asphalt.

I have mine mounted back. I'll have to play around with that. BTW. Just got some of the new TQ wire for my 1/12 scale, seems like good stuff. The sensor cable is very pliable.

Thanks will do! The support for the car is awesome both on here and at the local track so it was an obvious choice. I'll kick around the stock kit for a bit and consider the upgrade in a few months.

Interesting to hear you run the servo forward on asphalt, that's practically all we've got here on Oz. Just to confirm the forward servo position should give more steering on account of having more ackerman and more weight on the front? If that's the case maybe I better start with it back

The TQ wire is nice.

Try messing with the servo postion. Its a nice adjustment.

Thanks buddy. I try to support the car the best i can. We have been getting alot of support all over the world with hobby stores stocking our kits and parts. Things are just going to get better.

It does give a little more on power steering running it forward and the ballstuds behind the servo saver.

Huh, didn't know you had those and my order left already yesterday Ok, no prob, I will let you know if I won't get it somewhere else before making an order from you. I don't think I'm going to order anything new till new year from any shop though, as the Christmas at the post office are just MAD!
