I could shave the material off the alum steering knuckle to increase the ride height.
those look like Larry's steering blocks for the Speed Merchant Rev5 or 6.

Have you shaved something off the lower arms ?? They look more thinner than mine.

Those blocks appear to be longer (king pin to ball) than the stock part. This could change the ackerman...not neccessarily bad. Maybe the Xray steering block by Tamale is a closer fit - anyone have experience with these?

fyi..the tamale and stock are very close the same...I can check tonite....
You can add the plastic spacer to set the servo farther back to change the ackerman..

Can u take a picture?
i need to talk to Mr. tamale about making some parts for this car. he maybe able to offset the axle on the steering block so that we can get more ride height from small tires. nothing is perfect until you can run some tamale part.

here is a link to team tamale steering block http://home.earthlink.net/~cbradshaw25/id37.html

here are the xray steering block

i'll get with larry. most of his stuff is just polished alum because he always cuts small runs of parts. basically what us local guys aks him about.

it almost has to stay that way, just so people know that they have tamale upgrades. lol

Yep, those are Rev5 or 6 steering blocks. This distance from the axle to the ball is a little longer than all of the other makes of cars. This will change the ackerman position if the servo position is not moved. This longer position will also effect the steering response making it slightly slower. I can get things anodized just about any color, if there is enough demand to cover the cost.

but the Rebel is closer to center line of the king pin to the axles than the Rev6 steering block...
I used the king pin to line up together and compare

The speedmerchant blocks do have a little more trailing position for the axle.
