Yes you do, I think it's about 8mm wider on each side. Something like that.

Will the RS steering rack work with the stock chassis?

forty6- no it will not work, the rayspeed setup is spaced back a bit.

fire- the rears will work with no modifications but the fronts you need to grind down the end of the drive shaft or it will be too long, grind it down until it's even with the drive pins

Default RS steering rack on SSG

i cant seem to display the pics here..seems my website got some hotlinking problem..
anyway.. managed to install the RS steering on the SD.. the centre stiffner post had to be taken out and the part where it made contact with the steering nut had to be sanded down..
alternatively u can just take out the whole centre stiffener...
Oh and you need to get one pair of servo set ( the one with the spring and the collar.. can use the ones used for mr4tc custom or SP as well) and a pair of arms thingy

I'm using the Rayspeed steering rack on the stock Chassis. You just cant use the Rayspeed upper deck then.

Thanks rookie and the game. I am planning on keeping the my stock chassis. Was the mod worth it? I mean, did the car seem to be more responsive with it installed?

Thanks KilRuf!

Another question regarding the universals: Do you guys "grease" your universals(like shown in the manual)? When running outdoors I do not grease mine because I find that it attracts to much dirt. But what about indoors?

Do you use Loctite when assemling the little set screw?

Regards,
ingo

Ralf- when I built my shocks I took the spacer thingy that's in the shock body and cut it so only the triangle part is there, giving me a longer shock. Since I did that I was able to use the regular shocks on my rayspeed conversion but you still need to use the longer shock ends

IH- I don't grease my universals either because like you said, it attracts dirt. I recommend using locktite on the little setscrew as well, they always loosen at the worst time
