I understand the principles but still have difficulty putting it into practice!
Appreciate your advice, really supportive and helpful

If I'm using the original abs suspension mount then I won't need the suspension ball right?

I plan to order whole set of turnbuckles in titanium for toe, camber and servo arm with some new ball end, the ball end comes with the kit is cup type and very hard to screw it into the turnbuckle, could you provide me a list to order? Many thanks again

Lightbulb UWA > SSK?

One of my SSKs didn't turn smoothly so i replaced them with the D3 ultrawideangle shafts #SAK-D331 to see how they fit. Here they are side by side:
imageshack.us/photo/my-images/706/3racingdriveshaftuwassk.jpg
(can't even post images from my rctech account?)

Now that SSK wasn't entirely (factory-)clean when i took it apart, but the UWAs support a bigger angle: they rotate smoothly even with full lock with the SAK-D310 Alu Steering System (which neither SSK did).
So now i have spare SSKs

Got to run my D3 for the first time yesterday, and man it was a blast. I ran it for two hours straight amd I was smiling the whole time, I can't wait to get my body and other stuff I have on order to run it again.

Nice! I knew my SSKs were limiting my steering angle and noticed big difference after the MST/R31 hybrid.
Plus, fixed my Ackermann....I think I'm at about 0 front toe or about 1 toe out.

And more update...I put back my 22T aluminum rear pulley. Can't find the 13T for rear center. So, right now it's at 1.99 CS with the 14T rear center pulley.

Wow, that's really interesting! Thanks for sharing. I really want to do pickled's KPI mod, but this may be a good way to go 'til I'm ready to do the full conversion. Anyone interested in my SSKs that I've never run?

I just realize I've installed the front one way in opposite direction, will this be the reason why my car keep spinning?

Just make sure when you throttle forward, the front tires spin forward also under power....and when you go reverse, the front tires just freewheel.
If it doesn't do that, flip the FOW over.
