If you're referring to the link with the servo saver, it would be more precise at the higher point as it take a larger movement of the servo to make the same movement of the wheels.

I think you have that backwards. The longer the lever the less rotation required for a given amount of steering throw.

Yes, the longer the servo horn, the more speed and travel, at the expense of torque and resolution.

Didn't Hudy buy up an entire batch of Hanulec's spool outdrives for their own use?

Yep, you're correct, after staring at my steering linkages etc it all became clear

I don't really want to have to butcher the saver, but I don't think full lock is achievable in the lower central position without modifying the saver.

Are you referring to the soon to be invented and patented by Xray optimized spool outdrives?

Skiddins
Some may call it "butchering" if prefer the term "optimization"

Unfortunately, every track surface is different and each change may not work across the board. Another thing worth mentioning is depending on the carpet and what the the layout looks like, you might find that the track offers more forward bite than lateral grip, and vice versa. Before making any siginificant changes make sure that you are NOT chasing the track, speaking to locals about what the tracks does throughout the day helps greatly, but if its brand new carpet like IIC, Indoor champs or Snowbords, just wait for the grip to come up before taking a big swing at it. Lastly, sort out your tire prep as you may be able to get allot more grip just by adjusting the length of time your compound sits on the tires or the type of compound.

Below is what I have found to work from both testing with Andrew and from when I used to race.

To increase forward bite:

Stand up shocks
Less camber
More rear toe
More front droop
Higher rear roll center
Thinner rear diff oil
Spool

To increase side bite:

More droop all round
Shocks in
More camber
Shorter links
Lighter swaybars
Lighter springs
Lighter oil

Keep in mind, you can go too far with any of these changes and end up going the wrong direction.

The trouble with Xray's outdrives for blades is that a lot of the blade is left exposed which means you wear a groove in them.
On Xray's forum I mentioned that they needed better outdrives for their spools.
Perhaps they've listened

Corey, can you explain what forward bite is? Do you mean traction going forward? I don't think I have ever had a car just spin it's wheels unless on pavement. I only race on carpet. The only weird handling issue I have ever faces is a back end that wont stay planted when I pour on the power at the apex of a turn. The back end comes loose. Would that be lateral grip?
