Or has a different chassis/topdeck combo vaused some alignment problems?

Thats made me think, with the PAL R2 conversion having machined section for the bulkheads and motor mount, won't it also need slightly shorter steering posts. Is this going to be a dremel job? or will hey machine the chassis at the steering post holes or include shorter parts needed?

THhere were some issues with the upper deck were the Steering posts mount ....the under side of the upper deck

On a side note about my local club racing, we've just ordered the Road Rail system, so no more rolling and unrolling of long fire hoses that then need to be taped or nailed down
Should look a lot more profesional too, and stop some of the all too easy corner cutting you get when you use flat fire hoses

Just hoping I get my next order from Steve by next Monday, it's looking like it will arrive on Monday at the earliest I need the extra diff I ordered or it will be one way slideyness on the wooden floor it can be done but it takes big *ahem* to get your thumb to keep on the power in every corner even though everything tells you it has to go slower to make it, you still need to slow down but long before you arrive at the corner very odd and very difficult not to spin out atleast once a lap

Look closely at the PAL conversion pics, the part of the chassis where the steering posts mount is machined down, use the stock posts with no mod.

the upper deck had counter sunk holes there where the post mounts . it was done that way so you could use it with out shorten the steering post. the movement is free and if you installed the short post then you simply added a washer no biggie. but i never had a problem with it.

Well our work was done for nothing though. I still got it 100% tweak free which was time consuming, but should be very worth it on the track.

It gets it's debut in BL today

How'd you get rid of the tweak?... my WEB has a bad tweak.
one day its' on the right front and the next day it's in the rear..
can't figure it out.....
I laid the chassis down on a flat glass panel...unscrewed the upperdeck & bulkheads and retightened.

If you can't get rid of it, just have a friend at the track hold down on the front and rear shock towers (pretty hard) and tighten all of the bolts down in a star pattern, you can usually get a perfectly flat car by doing that.

I've found the shock mounts can shift both front and rear. if you loosen them hold them down and tighten all will be good. i have recently countersunk the two top srcew holes and for the last couple weeks have not had this problem any longer

you may want to try this
