Is that the mod sedan/foam class? Is Chris' setup available anywhere?

Actually these are pictures of my car...

I mounted the RS steering plate in the same way as on a TB3 because my servo mod did not allow me to do it the RS way...

Do not need any parts other than the stock steering and RS plate. You just need to cut one part off the plastic as the picture above shows.

And the RS steering comes just with the plate/bearings/balls, so if you want to mount it like on the RS conversion kit you need to buy another plastic part / servo saver.

There is much less play than stock but I can't say compared to a RS one as I've never seen

any...

What' sthe advantage of the RS steering compared to just turning it with the standard parts. I just can't see the point. With the RS steering one can't even use the center brace.

Default RS vs. Stock steering assy

With the stock steering setup there is a lot of steering slop on the left side. The reason for this is that the distance between the bearings in the left bellcrank is not very great. Just a tiny bit of slop in these bearings causes the bellcrank to tilt sideways, resulting in steering slop on the left side. Even with the "precision" bearings there is quite a bit of slop. This is not the case on the right side, where the bearings are relatively far appart.

With the RS steering you add another servo-saver, and thus weight, but gain steering precision on the left side.

The Rayspeed steering (when fitted correctly, as in the Yokomo USA pics), makes the steering response even in bothe directions. With the stock steering, the play in the ackerman link means that one wheel is sloppier than the other when you steer.

Since you used this in the TB3, that means it should mount on my 414 with out no probs. Like i said i was using the MR4TC steering bell crank then reverted back to tamiya but the TRF ones is slopping too much compared to the MR4TC.

So this Ray speed is the same ?? Correct ?? What parts do i need ?? Is that blue post optional ??

Thanks,

The Rayspeed steering uses the same plastic parts, the same servo savers and the same posts as the normal car. The only different part is the carbon link and the hardware it attaches to.

I did not use it on a TB3. Read better I wrote that I mounted my RS steering link like it is on a TB3 (TB3 uses a carbon steering link).

It will not mount on a 414. If you want to reduce play in your 414 steering, use glue in the holes of the 414 steering link (like it is used to prevent carbon from delaminate but not for the same purpose).
