any suggestions before i build another set of turnbuckles?

PICS OF THE MESS!!

You can see that the right wheel (left side looking at the pic!!) is turning outwards while the left wheel is straight.

maybe i'm too tired to see the problem!!

What he said. You need to et your sevo horn straight up, then make sure your steering rack is straight, then you make the tie rods straight.

For outdoor asphalt, medium to large track, I would say 3mm but 2.5 works also!
Just my 2$

[QUOTE=mini master]smooth asphalt[/QUOTE

I would use 2.5 mm...Since the MSX is design mainly for asphalt racing and 2.5 is what they came out after R&D.

I tried the steel outdrives on my 415 that was from the TA05 spool and it chatters at full throw. Anybody knows of replacement delrin outdrive or that maybe modified to work, I would greatly appreciate it! Thanks in advance!
It is possible to get just the outdrives now. I know Champ RC has them instock. You could try asking steve at Speedtech to see if he can get them in as well...

i would not do that. due to the stress of the one way, you would eat up the aluminium in no time..
