on another note, have you had any speedo problems before? it seems that i do not get enough punch out of my speedo.....maybe im just paranoid. im using a gt7. you?
Also using GT7. Speedy has plenty of punch and I don't seem to lack punch compared to others. It could simply be your batteries, I don't know. What profile are you using?? Lately I've been racing Stock so I am using 5 at the moment. I will finish up with Stock I think in a few weeks and focus 100% on Modified.

how do you guys go about this? shim it sits higher?
I presume that you mean the front upright. I now have the Aluminium Square part for that and I use the furthest hole to the rear of the car. Works a treat.

In regard to the tailshaft contact, I am actually using a turnbuckle instead of the carbon steering plate due to durability and I don't have that problem at all, unless I take a big hit.

Okay, cool. Be sure to let us know how that goes. From what I've heard, Profiles 3-6 are the ones to go for. Try them out and see how you go. I have yet to REALLY test them out for sure.

no no not the carbon steering plate that is hitting the tail shaft the actual steering link which has 2 ball cup ends on each end... ahhh to hard to explain!

but yea those square alloy hop ups are expensive!!! you must of spent a fortune!

also i noticed you advised 4 deg front c hubs does this give us more steering compared to the 2 deg?

Generally the tracks that we race on are bumpy and more camber is good for bumpy tracks. Also, I believe that they are better for rubbers too which is what we race here.

Because I use a turnbuckle instead of the carbon plate, this means that I can alter the ackerman by adjusting the size of the link with the turnbuckle. Because of this, I don't get that close to my front joint because my link is shorter then the carbon steering plate, if you know what I mean. When we catch up sometime, I'll have to show you. That will better explain it.

thanks Gailfrey!!
but for some reason it looks like the middle steering rod is not coming in contact with the front shaft and i looked at your shims on the left hand side that is connected to the left steering arm post. looks like what i did. very strange and it does look like you have full lock to the left as well!!!

beats me!!! lol but thanks! ill be trying to add another shim to see what it does if it has enough thread.

He is talking about the threaded rod that goes from the servo saver to the steering bellcrank. I personally have not had a problem with that hitting but I set it up exactly like the manual said. You need to make sure that at neutral steering, the servo horn is over about 30 degrees to the right when looking at the spline and then you use the topmost hole in the servo saver. If you do this, it will not touch. Otherwise, I can see where the servo throw would be off and that threaded rod would touch the driveshaft.

FWIW, I ran on insane traction carpet this weekend and ended up running -2.5 in the front and -2 in the rear with foam tires. I finally got the tires wearing evenly!!!

Check if you have your steering crank installed wrong. if you look carefully you will see that the length is different on the two sides and the shape of the holes are different too.

I think this pic will show what is wrong....

Bet he has used the middle hole on the servo saver rather than crank the horn over and use the end one...
