i dont have a camera handy but i will when i make my new pieces for it . it looks rough because it was for testing and was made out of kydex. pretty much it is a triangle piece that bolts to the swaybar holes in the topdeck and a center hole i drilled that put the bellcrank back enough to clear the diff pulley. i used xray captured ends for the links but i think that the stock ball cups are a better choice as i had to take a dremel to the captured ends so it wouldn't bind. and i made extensions that made the new knuckle hole 6mm back. this gives it the angle pretty close to the xray cars. i think that this would work better than actually using the corally one because you use the stock steering post with a 3mm spacer under the adapter so you dont worry about belt clearance.and you can use the 3.4mm regular topdeck which is stiffer.

i am going to also try the standard bellcrank setup with the extensions on the knuckles to see what that does on the track.. has anyone else tried this setup?

What's the ultimate goal with the steering modifications? Does it only change Ackerman?

brian, the extensions i made, make it so the hole is linede up with the same hole you normally use on the steering knuckle. the inside one. how does your car handle with the shorter links.
