Direct bolt on, servo does need to be flipped as shown. Cost? I bought it from Schumacher UK for 21.27, so it depends on the exchange rate of the day as I am in California. I do believe Stormer is going to have it soon.

Happened to me as well after I placed my order for the bellcrank. They were fraudulent internet purchases made with my debit card to Adobe and another company. I found it but my bank happened to call me first. Just canceled the debit card and am getting a new #.

I was able to steer more proportionately in the corners rather than full lock to full lock. I did not play with the ackerman though, I left it on the the outer middle hole and front most hole on the bellcrank. Still lacked a touch overall cornerspeed, but I think I know the changes I have to make to make that progress.

Here's how I have it installed and please excuse the dirty car:





We ran something similar a few years ago with the MI2 we ran the Corally RDX steering bell cranks

simple fix to all that, but requires a little time at the bank, I set up a secured credit card with a 300 dollar limit, and it is only good for RC stuff with a list of approved companys. actually I have a couple of them. one for rc stuff, one for real car stuff, one for internet po.... never mind TMI

Schumacher just changed there payment system? It now directs me to a different site ( can't remember what one but i've seen it printed on ATM's and stuff here in the UK ) and seems alot more secure, I did have one problem but have made many orders since then with no problems.

Whats amazing to me is that a Shumacher rep has not responded about this on this forum. Its clear to me that it is one of their employees.

Yes. One can still purchase parts online in the US or direct from Schumacher. Hasn't been a problem for me at all.
