Hey guys. Can some of you post pics of your flat servo install? Im having a hard time getting the link flat when looking down on the car. Either the servo is pushed up against the front arm or I had to drill new holes to get the servo back enough. Its not the new RR if that helps.
Next question. The new RR L-plates, is the extra hole more forward making the plate longer or is it the same length with an extra hole to make it stiffer?
Got my new 12R running yesterday. Spent most of my time getting the chassis sorted out. Started out with a little push on/off power. Played with a few things and ended up with a slot car. The car is very honest. Every change shows on the track. Very nice compared to some of the cars I have driven lately. Most of my problems is with the Akerman. -15% expo was too uneven for me and -10% wasn't enough. Just to overly responsive for me. I drilled new holes to move the servo back for the next time out but kinda worrying that it might take too much on power steering out. I allready have the upper arm forward.
Im sure a few will ask for the setup, its kinda odd and not done yet but this is what I ended up with.
arm forward (2degs ?)
7000 on kingpin
1 deg camber
Thick L-plate with/out set screw
7000 in tubes (thinking 10000 would be better)
30wt and red spring (blue was too soft and red too hard, have gold now and going 35wt next time out)
2mm pod droop (have 1mm now)
Black ballstud with no washers on mount
Magenta frt with 3/4 inside doop
Pink rear full doop
The fronts are still getting a little build up and wearing faster than the rear. The only other thing I can think of is that if the car gets a little off line it wont come back. Thinking maybe .018 front and thin plate in back will cure that. This way I dont have to goto softer tires.
