Does anyone still run an upright servo in this car or am I the only one?

166 is pretty narrow.
I don't know the exact term but that's a change I am not looking for vs just track width by widening the geometry of the arms and not by shimming out the wheels from the axle

are you wanting longer arms to reduce camber gain? as well as width?

Widening the track width via front axle shims will also affect scrub radius... whereas altering the width via the lower control arm(ie: adding shims b/w the bulkhead and arm a la AE) will not.

This is one of the reasons the Xenon front end is cool... you can adjust the kingpin inclination angle independently of camber, thus changing the scrub radius.

I'm going to be racing this car in full-length limo mode at the mile high champs. Long chassis and long rear pod plate from an altered ego. The spot where I have to cut the rear holes in the body is comical, but the long wheelbase should calm the car down!

Now all I need is some talent...

I wonder how the wheelbase in the long mode compares to the new Kyosho...would love to be able to run that Kyosho 962 body

What sides are you currently using? Better yet, what's your setup. What surface?

I think you would get more on-power steering with the trailing front axles as you use the maximum amount of castor on your setup sheet. Have you tried that?

The sheet doesn't show how much front droop you have if any. If you do have front droop try reducing it. Also when I go carpet racing in Vegas I notice the mod guys often run softer fronts than rears. I don't run mod though so I can't say why they do it...only an observation that I've made.

Are you actually running inline axles? Or is that a misprint?

Has anyone got any tips for identifying the new non painted side springs?
