You got me thinking along the same lines... Bravo.
I guess the RING is with you this weekend.
Moving the arms behind angles the steering linkage as the servo saver is at fixed position while the linkage to the steering block gets pulled behind when the wheelbase is shortened. Sort of like mimicking the new servo saver...
I guess it makes the front wheels toe out a little too if you didn't adjust and compensate the steering linkage lenght.
Last week I tested the short wheelbase mod. From 1 mm shorter to 2 mm shorter, the car felt better and better. I'll try 3 mm this weekend. The car felt easier to turn. Sort of like less scrubbing during the turn on sharp apexes with the rear end still very stable.
I hope to test the new Serpent rims I got too.
40 shore rear and fronts. First impressions were the compound seem to be more firm like what you noted.
