Silly q about DCJ's, I run 21.5 / 13.5 on a wide outdoor flowing track, with a front gear diff are DCJ's going to be any use to me over the stock cvd's? I know for a spool they are worthwhile due to wheel chatter at full lock (learnt that long ago, Tamiya TA05, Front spool, dog bones = BAD!) But in a gear diff is it a worthwhile outlay?

Probably, DCJ are certainly better at large steering angles. Depending on your setup and how you drive ie how much lock you use there will almost certainly be a small benefit whether that is worth the $$$ to you I cant answer.

Today, at my track (a small tight technical track with medium grip, track size is 36x60). I tried the spec r floating servo mount. Best 15 bucks I've spent on an upgrade, that actually made a benefit to my car. This is something I will for sure being using in the future. The floating mount made my car more predictable, and consistent. It gave it a slight amount more steering (as it should). I had to turn my dual rate down 4% to make the equivalent steering as before. I was able to get hot lap after hot lap, and the car just felt great. It also gave the car a slight amount more exit steering.

How does it differ from the stock standard floating servo mount?

It's a floating steering rack, not servo, hanging from the graphite servo mount.

It eliminates the bell crank post that attach to the chassis. It makes the servo mount a floating bell crank mount as well.

The only person I know that has run it used at my local asphalt track and took it off as it killed his corner speed.
Don't know anyone that has tried it on carpet.

This feedback on the floating swing rack all sounds correct to me. More flex on the front of the chassis would likely reduce steering on asphalt, but increase steering on carpet.

Or so that's been my experience so far with this car.

Eamotorsports has them.

I have snapped one screw head off of the threads, but I'm putting that to a rare mishap. But I've taken them in and out of my car a lot so they've got the miles on them haha.
