Not sure where you race as you don't have a location listed. Windy day here in the Midwest yesterday. We were all having the same trouble and concluded it was just the wind doing it. We all were having to trim out radios to go straight on the straightaway.

Could be tweak or some other kind of imbalance. What kind of servo? Are you running a cap on your receiver? Maybe the servo is losing power (strength) at full throttle?

thank for help
Might be your droop, place your car on a flat surface and lift the center of the rear end and look to see if your wheels lift off the surface the same time. Are you using a servo saver? Try swapping that for a servo horn see if that fixes the problem.

Bearings
Shocks (if all4 still have same amount of rebound)

Nexus has the new servo mount in stock.

I ran it for the first time last week. I don't know if was the difference or not, but that's the best and easiest my car has ever been to drive. It certainly didn't hurt.

Took the car out for the first time today. Heaven.
My car has been great and can achieve full steering throw but I to can not get my servo saver perfectly 90 degrees also. Let me know if you find a solution. Thanks

Correct about the rear, but the fronts have a total of 2mm of spacers, so with 1mm in front of the front wishbones, he must also have a 1mm spacer at the back of the front wishbones (kit setup)

Can someone explain the shim behind the shock setup?

- what does it do?
- which box on the setup sheet indicates it?
- I assume the shims should be the same both at the top and bottom of the shocks?

I built mine with no shims. Seemed to work.

Default Diff position

Hi,

Ive noticed in recent setups that people are now putting the diffs in the upward position rather than the down position which is kit. What affect does changing the diff position have on the cars handling?

I had a similar question over in the '11 thread. What I was told is that 90 degrees with the arm and chasis isn't what you are looking for. Rather, you want 90 degrees between the link and the arm. The arc the arm travels is what you need to be concerned with.

If you have your arm perfectly centered and your endpoints adjusted for full lock, check their values. I bet they are not the same.

I had some weird steering issues going on and after adjusting using the following technique my steering has really improved.

Here is the method:

If your right endpoint is higher, shorten the link, adjust subtrim to center steering, readjust endpoints for steering symmetry, recheck endpoints, repeat if necessary.

If your left endpoint is higher, make the link longer, adjust subtrim to center the steering, readjust endpoints for symmetry, recheck endpoints, repeat if necessary.

Due to some steering layouts, if may be necessary to reverse the above procedure.

Worked great for me, but it is a bit tedious!

90 degrees between the arm and the link would be even more challenging to get with the stock pieces.

I have a converted (east/west) config on my '11 and I have really close to 90 between my link and servo saver. My endpoints are exactly the same now whereas before they were about 25 points difference.

This is how close I can get with the stock link as short as possible. looks like I will need to find a shorter turnbuckle.
