Smile mini-z steering

hmm, okay...just picked up a mini-z (blue viper gts-r )

great fun!!! but i think it needs the ball-diff (and light kit looks fun!)...anyhow...has anyone done something to fix the steering slop?

i tried a bit of small heat-shrink which seems to work...but i think it binds the front suspension slightly & i'm not sure how long it will hold in becase it was too thick, so i cut a bit out so that only one side would space the steering pin (if anyone understands what i'm trying to describe here )

has anyone installed the alloy knuckles or steering rack? does that clean up the slop much?


btw. if any of the ac's read this...how's bolo's garage track going!?!? i wanna race!!! (is sick nights still going?)

recepition interference shouldn't be noticable for a brand new miniz~~so no worry~

and for the steering slop it is there for reason~ at least i think it acts as servo saver while the car crash

the alloy steering rod is not necessary

if your car can track straight then it should be no problem~

You can get a steering rack with toe out 1 degree, 2 degree or 3 degree. This helps the straight line steering quite a bit.
