It's a group, not a page.

I'm setting up my 4.0 for carpet racing and can only find one or two carpet set-up sheets. Any proven carpet racing set-up suggestions other than those found on set-up sheets or anyone know where I can find carpet set-up sheets?

Thanks!
No kick shim with HRC molded pivot. Yes, 30* pin brace with HRC pivot.

I'm not sure about MKS servo spacing though.

What is the 25* kick angle referring to on J.R. Mitch's carpet set-up sheet? That is what is confusing me.

The pin brace isn't actually 30*, just lets the front of the pins sit up higher. It was originally designed for the 30deg pivot, hence the name.

Ok, thanks, but I'm still confused. Towards the top of the set-up sheets, where it says "kick angle" and has 20, 25 & 30 as the options to check, what is it referring to? On the Mitch carpet set-up sheet he used the front HRC pivot and he has the 25 box checked, does that not mean he used the 25 kick shim with the HRC pivot?

The standard pivot you will have a shim to run 20 or 25. There is a separate block for 30. The hrc is 25 but you run no shims in it as the pins are raised. You run the 30 pin brace due to them being raised.

It's just a glitch in the system. We have an order due any day.

Got it. That makes sense. Thanks everyone!

Does anyone know what size shims need to be used, if any, when mounting a MKS low profile servo?

Does anyone else feel a clicking or catching when spinning the front axles in the spindles? One of mine is real bad, even with brand new bearings, the spindle taken out of the caster and with no wheel on. I've tried removing both washers, removing the spacer between the bearings and even different bearings, to try and pinpoint the problem-with no luck. Almost like it's maybe the axle. Car has not been driven yet, other than inside the house, on the kitchen floor, to check the steering trim.

If anyone has a MKS Low Profile Servo, use 2.5mm shims for mounting the servo in front of the servo mounts. If someone wants to add this information to the servo chart, I have verified that it is correct and works.

I'm 99% sure this ended up being the bearings. I must have had 4 defective bearings because the third set I tried made the clicking feel go away. I'm using all of the correct washers and spacer per the manual with another set of new bearings and all is good now.

Mine did feel the same too. I switched out the bearings to newer ones and they are smoother. Still the bearing doesn't stay in place very well. I may switch out the inserts to see if that improves the bearings
