What???
Do you mean connect the steering bell crank to the servo that is mounted using a floating mount?
Remove the screw that holds the Ackerman adjuster and replace it with a pillow ball. You can find some details a few pages back with pictures. It's easy.

I have finally had time to install a WC chassis and install the xray T4 floating servo mount.

Really easy to do, it feels very solid and wont budge with the extra key hole on the mount to the chassis,

With the WC chassis the servo has lots of overhang




cant wait to give it a try

Extra info, i used a 10mm long ball in the bell crank, and put a nut on the other end to give it that little extra security

Hi beth,
Looks like we're running very similar setups.
Is there any tips you can give regarding xerun v3 setup with the sonic? I'll be running 17.5 boosted

Thanks!

evochick - does that servo mod require any drilling to the chassis?

Yes, it requires 3 holes drilled, you use the carbon servo holder as the template, im hopeless when trying to measure and drill things accurately, this way you cant stuff it up.

Stupidly expensive, Xray parts are not cheap, but i liked this mount. Parts used are ( a-main prices)

XRA306201 XRAY Long Aluminum Servo Mount $6.99
XRA306230 XRAY 2.5mm Graphite Servo Holder $20.49
XRA306202 XRAY Central Aluminum Servo Mount $23.99
3RAC-TR328 3 Racing 28mm titanium turnbuckle $10
ASC 31285 Associated 10mm long ball stud $9.25 (i already had these)

beth the photon one would probably do the same job & would have been a lot cheaper than the xray part

I've heard the Yokomo BD-7 one works too, but it might be just as expensive as the Xray one

I have seen many guys did the centre servo mount thing (or floating servo mount).
From what I have seen, as long as the aluminium mount in the chassis centre is not more than 5mm thick, you are ok.
Anything more than 5mm, the front belt will def rub it.

So... Would it be accurate to say there is a market for a direct fit, floating servo mount for the TC6?
Perhaps I will work something up that folks would be interested in. I like the 3 piece design like the Xray.

I don't think there's a way that it could be done without drilling.

I'd be interested in someone proving me wrong though
