In other words you want the inboard end points of the lower A arm and the upper link closer together than the outboard end points of the A arm and the upper link.
Hi Martin,

Thanks for the explanation on roll centre adjustments. To raise the roll centre, when would you choose to remove shims from the inside upper link rather than to add shims under the toe blocks and vice versa? Are there pros and cons to using one method over the other?

Thanks,

Vincent

Edgarski no real need to get the transponder holder, just get a old peice of lexan off of a bodyshell and stick it to the servo and the transponder.

No, that's for MS and std 415, also only for personel.....
The servo mount is thicker, placing the servo further forward on the chassis, uses same std. mounts as Evo IV (that's for MSX )

That's nice bling though...
