Thumbs up

Tried the center-point steering system today and was very happy with it... much more mid corner steering, but it did cause my front tires to wear as much as the tradtional system (unlike some of the other results that some racers have posted). My lap times were faster - and as the race day went on, my confidence increased - making my timese much more consistent. Great investment. BTW - I race foam tires on carpet.

I felt like I got better results with even tire wear using the new topdeck, but not because of the steering. The even flex is what I was thinking. I'm not using the new steering (yet).

I thought uneven tire wear is due to car setup?? Smaller tires on either end means the car is either tight or loose.

By the end of a race day (with the carpet spec chassis) I have about .5mm difference between the front and rear tires which to me isn't that significant. Then again, I rotate tires from side to side every run which I'm assuming most racers do. Anyhow, can't wait to give the new topdeck and steering a try!! Hoping to gain at least a tenth or two.

The difference in my front to rear tires is about 1mm by end of race day. Yes, uneven tire wear is set-up - which I will be working on over the next little while to try to even things out.

With the changed ackerman with the new steering, the car has even better rotation then it did before (which was amazing). Great investment for sure.

Anyone use scales to tweak the car? If so, how many gram difference side to side would you call the car not tweaked?
