Assuming you mean the the steering links? that go from the steering hub to the servo saver?

I run mine on the outer one for increased ackerman effect.

Yeah. Isn't Ackerman achieved by the servo saver? I thought the hole position just increases the throw with respect to servo movement?

it still changes the angle relative to the wheel on the other side. Check it out

ackerman extensions are sometimes used on touring cars - http://www.microtechracing.com//prod...t=TOURING+CARS

is one example

hey guys we have started to run a mini class at our club.
eastbourne electric car club in england.

these things are great so much more fun than raceing snoring cars lol.there seems to be more people turning up every week at the club with a mini. its been a great way of introducing new people to our great hobby

heres some pics from a meeting we had at the weekend as you can see the swift seems to be very popular.

skiv - I enjoyed the pictures. Thanks. Tamiya minis may be one of the most popular rc cars around the world.

Just drop it off at the lost and found. I'm sure someone will come looking for it.

I might sell my M03L. How much should I ask for?
It has universal shafts, aluminum knuckles, BB, and two beat up bodies.
