what you can do to stop this which is what i had to do when i had my ssg as you can tell from the big gouge out of the back of the centre shaft afew pictures down (before anyone asks the shaft has been swapped round ) is to move the servo horn away from the centre of the car on the actual servo and then make the link longer becuase if you think about it if you had the the servo horn striahgt and turned in it makes the link go down but if you have it out to the otherside when you turn in it makes the link go up so therefore no more catching on the shaft

Haha, never thought of that the rod was too short, although i took the longest turnbuckle i had laying around..
The main benefit i see having the steering linkage on the left side is that you can have a turnbuckle on the lower steering linkage and thereby set the ackerman angle.

How is the Rayspeed chassis on carpet? Is it stiff enough?

Does anybody have any advise on how to get more offpower corner entry steering? Once the car is into the corner it steers good, its just getting it there. Its not real bad, but i feel as though the car just has to slow down a little too much before it steers nicely.

Thanks.

1. try standing front shocks up
2. add kick-up
3. add anti-squat

whats your setup?

Happy New Year! (Oops, isn't it a little bit late )
I always find my cgm doesn't get enough grip when my local asphalt track has poor traction... Anyone encounters this?!
Thanks!

I have to swicth to tyres filled with foam insert. You could buy tamiya 26mm foam / sponge inserts.

I think this way is easier than finding new setting for low grip.
