quick question, i would like to know if im reading this xray setup sheets correctly, when he has checked off in the boxes next to the wheelbase setting 2(x), 1, 0(x) can someone explain what these setting are and where do they go, ive included the actual setup sheet so you have a better idea what i mean. Thanks for any help. The problem im having here is why is the 0(x) checked off is that a shim or spacer?

Is easier with 2.5 or 2 mm?

If you look closely the arrows from those check boxes point to the spacers in front of the wishbones at the front and the back of the car.

I don't understand why it has a '0' box at all, but if the 2mm is ticked, then a 2mm spacer is in front of the rear wishbones, if the 1mm box is ticked then a 1mm spacer is in front of the wishbone.
You then put put whatever spacers were'nt used at the back of the wishbone.

The rear uses a total of 3mm of spacers, the front 1mm.
So if 2mm is indicated on the rear wishbones, a 1mm spacer is fitted at the back of the wishbone.

If there's 0, it means you put all the shims at the back like you said.

Is everyone using the foams and o rings. I dont see what the foams can change in your shock. Is it better with foams or without?

I have the new servo mount 306220 can you use the new servo brace together or is anyone doing that now.

I'm having trouble getting my servo saver to 90 degrees. The link is bottomed out. This is with a bls551. Is this a common problem? I suppose I could just get a shorter turnbuckle.

Took the car out for the first time today. Heaven.

You need a screw remover... you can get them at Sears, Home Depot, etc. etc...

I've had good luck with torx bits fitting really well. Even when stripped out.

No this is not Normal...I would check the tightness of the belts and make sure your drivetrain is free.
