I haven't seen the setup... I'm still looking to get rid of any and all of the steering slop.... Seems impossible....

Hmmmmmm...... That looks like it's worth a try.... Does the steering link hit the driveshaft???? I have some adjustable tension Dubro rod links which have like no slop to them just itching to be put to use....

I actually went searching and found the whole article...

I currently have the Yok apart to rebuild the diffs and clean/oil the bearings so I am going to try the steering like that.... Just need to rummage through my parts for a longer turnbuckle....

These are green YMP CVD's sent to Chris by Masami. Don't recommend them, he broke two on the same race...

Ok, this sucks... All the turnbuckles I have a re either too long or too short.... I'm guessing that's a Tc3 camber link he's using... Too bad I can't swipe it off my TC3....

You just need to use the old SSG/Black turnbuckle link.
It's not the slop that causes the play, it's the total amount of linkage that generates the total play. From the servo ball stud to the knuckle ball stud there are a total of 5 links. Each one with even a tiny play will multiply the total by 5.
Whereas the left knuckle only has 3.

Sorry, I didn't see that on his CGM he had different CVD's. Him's are Titanium Racing CVD's (it's one of his sponsors, you can see all the ball studs from them on his car aswell).

His cars are absolutely slop free I believe the use of TR ball studs along with the old school ball cups from yokomo is a pretty good idea...
