Mike...Thanks for the tire info. Another question though...

What are the advantages of your and Barry's servo position? I imagine you get more weight over the front axle, lower CG and lower body fitting...is that it? And with that servo placing, you shim out bump-steer with shims under the steering arm ball stud?

I read in your 2002 'Birds set-up that you ran a shim under the front t-plate ball. I know this lowers the rear roll center (minor), but it also induces roll-steer (major). In what type of circumstances do you recomend running roll-steer? and how much makes a difference?

Thanks,
Phil Matthews

pilmat.. The reason i run the servo flat is one to get the weight down also i think this allows the car to turn alittle more with the bump steer that it makes....

I run a shim under my t-plate everywhere. Seems if i don't i do not get the car to rotate enough ...

Mike, for mounting the servo flat do you use servo tape & put shoe goo around it for rigidity or is it all shoe goo? Thanks, Jay.

iamramos,

FYI...lifting the center point on a TC just allows you to see which side has more/less droop than the other. If they lift at the same time, droop is even.

Mike...What are you using under the damper plate (stuck to the pod plate)? Is it teflon? And where do you get what you are using?

Thanks,
Phil Matthews.

Very respectfully Brian-this is the ask MIke Blackstock thread-not the TC3 thread. PLease let Mike answer all of his questions in here.
