Would look better with black screws in the motor pod rather than red. But thats just my opinion.

Maybe Jason could do some 'copper' alloy ones

Nice thanks for sharing. Jason Do the medium balls come in the kit in case we want to mount the servo flat?

I dunno...I'm up in the air on the red. But that's the only aluminum screws I had so I used them. I think polished aluminum would look best.

maybe he likes to color coordinate his screws with the spring he's using. maybe he's got a CH12 for every color spring with screws to match? wouldn't that be sick.

Default angled vs flat servo

I know this has probably been discussed before. The angled servo, reduces bump steer, so other than that, what advantages over flat mounting? Flat mounting has lower CG.

So, some drivers or car set-ups prefer one over the other.

Just wondering why, or if, one is really "better".

By the way, nice front suspension Jason.
So does it work better with angled or flat? and why?

Thanks.

the angle is more aggressive turning in,i started with it angled and drove one that was flat and for me it was to slow or i call it lazy turning in

For the new front end i like the servo angled. It seems to give the best overall steering geometry before going to a steering rack. Flat servo mounting has bumpsteer and pretty odd ackerman. I have never really been a big fan. I sometimes run the servo flat on carpet but once i got the car set well with it angled, it was overall much better.

I did more testing last night on the CH12 with the double wishbone suspension. The car was on a rail. I ran into a few small snags with some screws getting loose but a little blue lock tight fixed that. The set screws seemed to get a tad free in the flex plates and droop screws in the suspension arms after alot of adjustments so i added a small dot of CA on the screw and that was fixed. It kept them nice and held adjustment perfect. I lock tight all the screws that thread into aluminum with blue lock tight. The car was super smooth, fast as hell, and handled like a dream. Tons of steering,minimal tire wear and just overall very fast. I want to try a natural rubber rear tire like a magenta or double pink as i dont think i need the synthetic foams anymore with this front end. The car rotates much better than the strut and doesnt seem to need the free feel of a synthetic tire. More testing to come. I will post my setup today.

Was this on a carpet track Jason?

Seems more and more like the car is a winning lotery ticket, with the new front being really good I can't wait to hit the local carpet track of my club MACH in the Netherlands.

I am very interested in the set-up...
