Default Ackerman settings

I have looked all over and cannot find anything that tells me what the different ackerman settings do. i.e. what would happen if I rotated the servo saver holder 180* from the stock setting?

Thanks

Hey Devil dog If you look on the Xray website, someone posted this PDF file that breaks it all down. It tells you about camber, ride height, droop and so on. Hope this helps!

MSHAP33 I think Im going to go with the 112 tooth b/c I never plan on running the 3mm chassis. You can go to rcshack.com and they carrry 64 pitch spurs!

For everyone who has their kit already, I will be with you soon.LOL

I think I have seen the document. It basically the manual for the setup station. It is also included in the kit and it has some great information. It talks about everything BUT ackerman.

Does anyone know why the thrust bearing has two different shim sizes (different internal and external diameter)?
Thanx people.

The ackerman extension gives less 'toe out' in the corner, I think this means less front traction and higher cornering speed. Can be I'm wrong.

Yes, I belive you are correct. I would just like to know what the different servo saver settings do. What is the ackerman setting if the servo saver shaft is toward the rear vs toward the front (stock).

Thanks

DO NOT Try to Tighten the Eyelets to 1mm from the Shock Shaft! Just go 2mm And they Won't Leak around the Threads Due to the Bottom Spring Retainers. Pre Thread/Tap The Eyelets With A Screw From your Kit If You don't Your Shaft Or Eyelet Is Going to Get Boogered UP!!! THEY ARE TIGHT and it is hard to hold the Shaft While Threading They are So Tight!!!
