If not that can cause enough of a angle to cause a bind on the steering post.

Here is a link to the King Headz brace with an aluminum shim.
The kit shim is plastic.

For parklot racing you normally lock the centre diff or thick oil ie 100K oil . A 30K-100K-30k diff setupset A arms fron t and rear to level with droop screws ie very little droop. The jump may cause th car to bottom out if the shock oils is too low. Go hard with shock oils start 60F and 50R.

Paradoxmaker - I've never heard of that problem either. Is it possible that you are using center diff posts rather than servo saver posts in that location? They look very similar. I don't know if that's possible, but it's the only thing I can think of.
I recommend you get a Gotech 7 port or 5port. Good price and awesome performance.
