Default Steering Throw

Hi,

How much steering throw is too much?

I just measured mine, and I have 18 degrees of throw.

Will having too much steering throw result in significant scrubbing of speed in high-speed chicane sections of the track?

thanks in advance

Does anyone run the alu belt pulleys such as the option ones available from Serpent or the CSO Racing ones? If so which ones do you run and what advantage do they have over the standard nylon ones?

Regards.

Smoother drivetrain, Personally i run all of them........the nylon is injection molded so there high/low spots, the alu. ones is machined so it should be perfectly round. Plus I think the grime form the track doesnt collect as easy onto the pulleys

Injection molded, not blown.

Am I correct in saying that Serpent do not make alu replacements for all of the pulleys, such as the ones on the front and rear axles?

It would be nice to have all of them in alu.

Thanks for the info. Still strange why Serpent does not make them all. Maybe they think they are not required.

Also, what is the difference between these uprights

http://www.serpent.com/product/903257/

and these

http://www.serpent.com/product/903351/optionals/

they both fit the 960/966.

Is it true that the front alu body posts are discontinued? I find this hard to believe. If so are there any alternatives?

I have them in stock. They are not discontinued to the best of my knowledge.
