You need to to shorten the servo turnbuckle by 3 or 4 mm to get the right length so that the servo saver is inclined forward. Centre servo then move saver 1 spline forward. if that's to much then use the trims.

On the cross damper make sure the grub screw is at 90 degree's to the chassis so it's not touching in roll

or try the following if the above is done,

If you've built the front end as per kit then try the hinge pin inserts so the hole is at the bottom to lower the roll centre

Also mount the side springs inboard so they touch the chassis not the links as this removes preload from the spring. You need 14mm screws for this and make sure the ball joint of the centre damper doesn't touch the 14mm screw in roll.

It adjusts your ackerman. -0.5 give you the greatest ackerman while the +1.5 is the least. I've been playing around with 1mm to the 1.5mm to mellow out the front end.

No, not a problem at all. It's fun to tinker with. Has downstop and travel set screws (droop and ride-height screws), and dampers. Its way cool.

Any one know the part no for the new wire type anti roll bar for c3?

I upgrade from conversion kit. The kit not come with it.

Is it worth to buy or just use the original anti roll?

Thanks.

Yes, I think it is this.

Any test for use or not use anti roll bar/new or original type (R12-17)?

I'm mounting and truing some donuts for a friend with a C3. Is everyone using the Yok arbor, or is there an alternative for truing them?
