Anyone got pics or a better option for me?
MIP tape seems to work for me.

They are in correct position. I have gone to 28.5 mm on my rear shock stroke assuming the drives may have snagged since they were pretty close to the ends of the outdrives. Also thinking the outdrives rings may have caused the sound as they seated or moved on the outdrives at it spun. At this point, who knows. Car running fine so probably all is good. I am leveling rear arms now whenever I break in my diff just in case.

step A2 of the manual, is it calling for the steering servo to be off-centre? or is it just a reminder to centre? i read it at as "build off-centre" which makes no sense to me

Yes, it should be slightly off. Plug your servo in and center it, then mount the servo arm at a slight angle as shown.

All the servo's i have used will not allow you to center the horn. It's always slightly off one tooth angled inward.

then the steering links are uneven length in order to have equal toe..

No, steering links need to be the same. Servo horn should be at approximately 1 o'clock position. If necessary, adjust the length of the drag link, but if you installed everything else correctly (servo, horn, steering links), it should be pretty close. If your servo is spaced too far forward/back, your drag link length will be wrong.

What tsair said, and...

I used servo shim to get servo link horizontal. 1-2mm gap on the servo link, doesn't have to be perfect.

Measure steering turnbuckles per the manual, it will set you up even.

Install servo horn one tooth inward,

Trim out the rest. EPA is about even at 80% with full throw both directions. Sub trim is about 10 on my airtronics.

No. Just build according to the manual like we are saying and you'll see. I have built five 22-series kits and rebuilt two more... it works out.

Im not doubting that it has worked out for you and others, but for me there is no way it will work with even length links.

I have already built the car and set the steering and the only way it will work is with horn centered. Ive had it all apart and double checked everything and its built correctly.

I am using the aluminium steering rack and posts so im not sure if that would be causing this?

another reason to adjust with the drag link instead is to prevent the link from going into an over extension where the servo arm travels too far, pointing down and then the link will dog leg the wrong way and lock

As long as you have full steering in both directions and the car tracks straight after sub trimming, it won't matter either way. You are only using part of the servo travel and have to limit it in both directions anyway, with EPA.
