Merciless:

Hi,

I mount my servo flat because I run the old skool front end most of the time. I think you run the servo angled with the new front to get the correct geometry. never tried it though. never had the new front end on a car long enough to really want to run it long term. Mini likes the old skool better (remmember K.I.S.S.)

Thanks

Merciless,
On rough tracks mount the servo on the angled mounts, on smooth tracks flat. On an angle is more forgiving and changes the acerman and bump stear.

I would call them but for the small fortune it would cost ringing the US from the UK.

Rick:

Hi,

The online ordering should be working now. I talked to Jason's web site guy last night. LMK if I can help.

sg1:

Hi,

Ray tells me your nothing but fast....... maybe I should send Mini down for SG1's school of driving 1/12th scales..... so he''ll be ready when we get ours up and running. they finally let out of the house
for the last two weekends so I've been going racing. Mini is still doing other things but might go this weekend.
I've got Q's on the 3 shock setup for a low bite track. (if I ever get a new chassis).

Thanks

John,
It's all in the set up of the front lower a-arms... They're so far out of wack. Make sure the chassis doesn't twist when you tighten them down and that they are the same hgt. I shim them all the time.

Tim,
Things been going well here. I ran the one run today starting at 11.0 and finished with 11.1's the last 4 laps!! I'm running the standard dampening washer set up. The traction is pretty good right now.

Wayne
