Yes you are trying to get steering linkage from the servo to the drag link at 90' to the chassis when looking from above.

OK. Looks like a lot of stuff different than my AC:
Rear hubs
Rear Axles
Shock Towers
Pills and possibly hangars?
Inner bearings for the rear hubs
Shock pistons
Already have the brass front pivot block thankfully. Are the things mentioned above available yet?

Here is a 22 5.0 AC setup sheet (without the ELITE parts).

You can use standard pistons, and go up 5wt front and rear. You can also make pistons with a few minutes and a dremel.

Shock towers have been available since early this year.

The Hub/axle/arm/bearing/hardware all come in TLR334069, so you only need one item. It should be available in 2 weeks or less.

Is this the correct brass C block to be used with the new Adjustable Pivot Set?

Yes that is the correct C block to be used with the adjustable pivot.

Anyone else having the diff loosening up and thrust screw backing out, diff barking and being ruined? have had to rebuild the diff 5 times in as many months, no matter hiw much I check the diff for correct setting, it seems to back off and bark in the middle of a race, seems like the thrust spring doesn't hold enough tension or something like that.

I'm debating either buying an Elite, or upgrading my 5.0 SR. If I were to go the upgrade route, I think the first thing would be the Adjustable Pivot Set C&D. Will this work independently of the VHA Conversion, or is it a situation where I have to do both in order for everything to fit correctly?

Good point. The screw side of the diff should be on the left side of the vehicle, (Or to explain it more visually) the screw side should be opposite the spur gear.

I was thinking the same thing, but after all the bling and add on parts I added to my 5.0 SR, I'm about 90% there already.

It would be more expensive to buy an elite and add the light weight drive line that the SR comes with, vs upgrading your current SR with the VHA and new pivot set.

Are you running a slipper?
Do you break in your diff after a rebuild?
Does your track have loose dirt?

Yes, yes, and damp med/high bite clay, seems to have a very narrow window of too tight to too loose. I build and break it in the exact same as my B6.1 and it last forever!
