Default which hole? Ackerman

On the Jammin X1 buggy, which hole on the steering link "servo saver connecting plate" will give more Ackerman affect? front or rear? Ackerman- as in greater angle between front wheels when at full lock.

do you mean steering throw? if so, i thought the rear hole gave you the most steering throw, maybe i'm wrong...

foward hole gives a more even throw of both wheels throught the corner (smoother)

back will give you more aggressive mid-corner exist steering, but the inside wheel will turn more into the corner rather than say the right wheel.

i find i will 9/10 leave it in the centre hole.

so foward progressive. back aggresive

if you leave it in the rear hole, you don't have to run as much toe-out, right?

In General yes. I think that would be some what different for most everybody. It would depend on their driving style and the track they were racing on.

Front holes & 2 degree toe out works good on most tracks.

the middle hole gives you the a little bit of both the progressive and aggressive steering quality.
