Sorry was answering the one who was having a binding issue. Yes the degree anti-squat is a tuning aide and is a personal preference, was just stating the standard setup, not what is mandated. of course nothing is mandated.

No, there is no option for 2mm trailing spindles. They only spindle designed to be used with the bell cranks are the 4mm ones that are included. Using the older 2 or 4mm spindles will alter the ackerman and lot let you achieve full steering throw.

Thanks for the reply.

Is converting the emulsion shocks to bladders simply a case of fitting the bladders or do I need different shock caps too?

The buggy wasn't originally designed to use a shorty in mid motor. I ended up designing a mid motor shorty mounting system that fits perfectly with no modification to the stock parts.

See the post a few pages back:

Default Steering Rack

Is there a certain way the steering bell crank has to be setup?
I've gone through three sets of servo gears and can't figure out what is causing it to fail.
I max out the steering epa just until it binds, then back off a couple of clicks. My epa ends up being around 90/150. The horn is biased to the right a tooth (when looking at it) and the servo horn is almost fully extended on right turn, but never reaches the point where it can get locked.
For some reason the gear will just fail and never has it happened in a crash or hard landing. It just fails... normally right around half steering.
I'm stumped. Anyone got any ideas as to what may be the issue here?
I'm using a Spektrum S6070 low profile servo and aluminum horn. Pretty much stock front end with stock spindles.

I have the Savox SC-1251 in my buggy, which should be about the same as the spektrum low profile. My servo is 2-3 years old with the original gears and I race every week if I can. You could always switch back to the plastic horn to take the edge off whatever shock the servo is seeing. What radio are you using?

Stock front end??? Are you using the spindles and carriers that came with the bell cranks or the parts from the kit?
I believe you still have to use the pieces that come with the bell cranks for the correct geometry. Unless that has been changed, it could be your problem...

Also, Instead of running the horn one tooth off, center it. I know a lot of people, as well as I, did that and it will bring your EPA points closer together. For me, I found that the servo will go over center when moving the wheels by hand and cause it to lock up. May also be your issue...

The manual recommends 35/70 which works out to 4.86:1 final drive.

Be careful and find out which type of stock motor you have before you select your gearing.

Most of the new gen stock 17.5 motors (ie. short stack stators and such) need to be geared considerably lower than 35/70. I think if you are running any of the newer hi revving stock motors you would want to start around 28/70 or 6.075 final drive.

Two years ago, I would have recommended 34/70, but nowadays with the latest stuff on the market, recommending a 35/70 will lead to a cooked rotor. (Don't ask me how I know that. I'll just tell you I found out personally, first hand! lol)

Cool, I'd recommend to start with 33/70 (5.154 final drive ratio) with 40-42 timing and gear to temp. Try and keep below 150-160f after 7 mins track time at speed.
