I am using the Reflex Vertical stud mounts. They have 2 holes. An inner and outer hole. I am using the outer hole. The shims are underneath the ball end.

Just wanted to post here about some of your products. I just bought some of the clear low profile shock bladders and installed them on my Xray T3 shocks (recommendation by awd). They are fantastic and makes shock building so easy. Thanks for the great product!

Nice! I'll be placing my order as soon as they're available on the site.

For those wanting to achieve "full lock" (steering hub touching caster blocks) like you could with the original chassis, take a look at the following picture.

6mm behind ball studs and new hole drilled in steering hub.

Pretty large image.

Cheers

Nice Mod! Nice alternative for different ackerman. What do you feel this changed?

I however, have not had trouble getting full lock. Which servo horn/ saver are you using?

I have noticed that when running TC6.1 steering arms with TC6 Caster blocks, a bit more steering lock is possible.

In any case, a longer servo horn will require less throw to achieve full lock.

How is the car doing Dennis?

Any chance we could get a little hint at the surprise? If its cool i'd add to my chassis in order to save a little on shipping

Really? I don't think I was able to make the steering hubs touch the caster blocks before drilling the new holes. The servo horn wouldn't make a difference as the actual steering rack stops on the nut underneath the steering link Ball stud.

In any case this mod/ackerman gives the car a lot more steering/aggression in low grip conditions.

Cheers

Going pretty well actually. The car "Transfers" trough corners really fast. I changed to a lighter shock oil last time and I could push a little bit harder. Car is great, I havent seen another RSD6 on the track yet . Currently i'm running offroad, when the weather gets worse i change to onroad. Offroad track is a 5 min drive for me But the car is great!

Velocity, we have a new steering bridge that has a threaded hole instead of a ball end with a nut at the bottom of it. Initially it was made this way so that we would have a stop on the steering. We are now using either a socket cap M3 screw or a button head with a 1mm spacer underneath to stop the steering throw. This should get you a little more throw. One thing I did instead of the nut was just to superglue my ball end on the steering bridge. To this point it has held up.

I have some pictures of some new items coming today and tomorrow.

Stay tuned
