How much better does your car handle with the speed control installed on the other side of the chassis next to the batts?

I tried the servo on the batt side, and it came up perfect L to R balance, i am surprised more have not gone this way.

Yes, 'Form' refers to the use of the rebound foam.

On Andys' sheets, yes, pressure is the amount of rebound built into the shock, in this case no rebound....although I'm not too sure what you mean by the car floating?....

The cells are directly in the centre, no rear or forward bias, this is not the best position.....
