I'm not sure that even having 2 kits will solve this problem. Because no one knows where it is stemming from. Only X-Ray would be able to figure this out as they have extra parts to check everything.

BTW-My way of checking rear toe. I have seen Mike Dumas and Mark Smyka checking it the same way. It does work and is accurate. Everybody is entitled to there own opinion I guess..

When I built my car I squared my bulkheads up on the chassis. Just checked my toe; car has no toe-in spacers, just the standard spacer on each mount; and I get 1/2 deg on each wheel.

It depends on what you are used to....some find servos like the KO 2123 to be perfect at .06....I found it to be a bit much for me....

I'm currently using a 9350, which is only .12 and it's working nicely for me...

The 9550 is the only low-pro high speed digital on the market that I'm aware of...until then ew KO arrives...

Dual rate doesn't control servo speed.

Plus the guy's looking for something at least .08 not just good enough.

I've also heard KO is coming out with a low profile servo. Not sure of the specs.

Short answer would be on the fly servo travel adjustment. You'll have to read up on it. I don't want to go off topic. Back to the T2

D/R isn't like the feature to actually control the servo speed, but since it is limiting the servos travel, it does slow down the servo since you are moving the wheel the same degree but the wheels on the car are not going as far as before. R.W.

it controls the amout of wheel movement (left to right) you have based on "lock to lock" (full turn left to full turn right) it usually is rated by the lower the number, the less travel & vise versa.....

This is one of the most key elements to tuning your steering characteristics based on the track(s) you run on.....You usually want to set this by having set full "locked" for the most "tightest" or technical turn on the track you are running on....and this will always vary (day to day) especially on "outdoor" tracks where the weather plays a key role in "traction" on the racing surface....

or at least that's how I set mine...

just my .02..........
