I should point out that I'm using Lunsford turnbuckles with thread that's a bit bigger than 3mm, though. The TC6 rod ends might not thread onto the stock 3mm turnbuckles tight enough.

Note aside:

I always run -15 expo in my Sanwa radio and my car is slopfree. Expo and double post steering go together very well.

Anyone running the dp steering, try to run the servo mounted as I do as with this you get a different steering link (servo to steering) angle alteration throughout steering movement.

Gives a different steering response.
Happy eastern everyone!

Thanks Martin.

I will try your steering setup. I was wondering why your steering linkage was setup different to the instructions. I was hesitant to try it without knowing why you ran your car that way.

Regards,

Calvin.

How about posting a picture to show how the servo is mounted.

Hi Guys,

Does anyone have a copy or a link to a good set up for the MI4CX apart from what is in the manual. Track Tarmac.

Regards

Not yet. I might throw one in my order when the gear diffs come in. I have 2 chassis with 2mm, and one with 2.5mm, but I don't think I'll ever race on anything grippy enough to really need the 2.5mm. Plus, asphalt season is coming....

Here is my set up after this weekends practice sessions. I am 3 tenths slower than the lap record but this is due to a lack of grunt and new tyres. This set up suits warm weather asphalt, large track 17.5 boosted. Any thoughts are appreciated.

The general view from over is that the soft chassis are better, it's something that a few of us have been playing around for quite some time.

did the "martin" steering thing, interesting setup, epa's are almost 100% for a perfect throw/feel of the wheel. can't wait till sunday to try it out. servo mounts actually fit on the cx moving the servo forward giving a tad more room and could lay my rcvr down.
