Hahaha, if it works for you then by all means use it. If you feel it makes your "slop symmetric" then symmetric it is. Just like I said, it still does ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to take care of that slop symmetric or otherwise. Again, it is very cheap to try. Just my .02.

Allright, thank you for your input. There's no point in getting PO'ed at each other for that anyway, we all work in the same direction: making this car as fast as possible...

if you don't like this 2 servo-saver asembly solution, fine... if I do, fine too

PS: And you're right, symmetric is spelled with 2 "m"... English is not my native language, I'm glad to learn every day.

hmm i found that the 2 servosavermod(one with the spring one only the coiler) take away some slope,but only on the ssd kit ,even factory driver use this mod like masami,tosolini,pumpler.

but the main thing is not to take all slope frome steering becouse the car will never go straigt after a corner ^^

Matt won't be running the speedworld cup as far as I know. Don't turn my tribute into your sick little I won at speedworld before STLNLST type deal... I'm running stock this weekend so maybe I'll get a win in that class

MATT.

I see you're moving house for a while.

It's been nice discussing with you.

Keep in touch. I'm sure you'll find a PC in Korea!

Regards

Joe from sunny Malta.

Before people started using the CGM or the RS Conversion, it was fairly clear that people found an improvement in the steering by using 2 servo savers. In particular, Randman found it to be superior and talked about it very early on in the thread.

Personally, I never had any problems with the stock arrangement.

Then of course I used the RS chassis conversion and that uses dual servo savers. It's very nice, has a very positive action and is totally slop free with no binding.

Thanks

Pops wrote it down for us and I never copied it to a setup sheet yet, maybe he can post it or I will later today when I get the time. I know it was pretty heavy with the shock oil and a heavy rear sway bar.

I will run your body colors at the speedworld cup in honor of you.....if that's okay by you.
Well they're taking their time getting my orders ready so I might be leaving around the middle of July now, not sure as of yet. I still might try to make the speedworld cup, we'll see.

Try Schumacher ball grippas. They are a good tight fit.
