True, but I keep seeing the '0' ticked, and the 2mm!

Took the car out for the first time today. Heaven.
When I converted mine to the '12 spec, I used a steering turnbuckle, but I cut a couple of mm off each end.

You just need to get max steering both directions (lockout) and then adjust endpoints so you are not putting torque against the servo by trying to turn to far, this is not good for your steering components, servo or chassis.
A lot of people even reduce there steering so that it does not go all the way to max lockout. Between adjusting steering linkage length, servo saver linkage position and proper shimming between the saver and arm you should be able to find a fluid and efficient steering setup. Don't be afraid to trim excess plastic from the servo saver if it is in the way.

You then put put whatever spacers were'nt used at the back of the wishbone.

The rear uses a total of 3mm of spacers, the front 1mm.
So if 2mm is indicated on the rear wishbones, a 1mm spacer is fitted at the back of the wishbone.
ok so in his setup sheet he has a 1mm checked off for the front, so this would mean that a 1mm go infront of the front wishbone and nothing in the rear, and in the rear he has the 2mm and the 0 checked off, this would mean he puts a 2mm in the front rear wishbone and the remaining 1mm in the rear?, thanks for your help guys

Do you guys do this with 2mm chassis?

Important note:

When changing the chassis, the roll centers will be 0.5mm lower compared to the standard chassis. Therefore, to keep the same roll center height you need to use 0.5mm shims under all lower suspension blocks.

Front needs 2mm total, most setup sheets you find they have 1/1, the rear uses 3mm total, most common is 2/1 but some run 3/0.

I often adjust rear arm spacing, I do not change the front as often . The more spacers you have in front of the rear wishbone the more weight transfer to the rear creating more rear traction. I use this as an adjustment to change the balance of my car.

No issue with saver. Just the linkage can't be short enough to get the servo saver perpendicular to the chassis (90 degrees) when in neutral. It'd about 80-85 degrees. It seemed to work fine and I can get full throw in both directions. Just my OCD.

First race day with the car. Had 8 straight DNFs with my TC6 before today. Finished all races in the top 3 today. Handled great all day.

Glad to hear you are enjoying the car and finishing well. Most kits will tell you to align the servo horn slightly to one side.

Just buy some spare out drives front the composite are fairly brittle if you touch the boards. Otherwise the car has been great.

Yep normal cos new servo mount pushes servo tiny a bit more close to centre of the chasis you need to adjust the link on setup station
