If your setting up for a fuel gun hole 'directly' above the tank lid, using a cable tie to pull open the tank, then sure like Robert had at the EC with long grub screw would be fine.

But it's just the a club/test body shell, where the bulk of my refueling is going to be from a bottle, pulling the tank open with a thumb, and I did not want the hole that far onto the roof for all that, the hole I made is about 8mm onto my roof, meaning 3rd post kind of needs to be further forward.

I don't see how what I did can foul the servo saver in any way?,

I see.. then you need to train your mech to use gun then.. hehe

We use the strap on our Capricorn; Kerry. It actually very easy (and fast) to fill from fuel as well as with a gun that way. Just don't push the bottle spout too far into the tank, and it's easy to see when the tank is full.

Kindest regards,
Lars.

Nobody else had problems with the rear camber links? when I use 0 offsett wheels and 199-200mm with then only about 1-2mm treads are into the ball link, I had to get some xray links and bals that I had to get it to work.
And the button head srews are not good and to big in the hex slot.
Other then that I liked it just a lot of understeer with stock setup

use one of the steering ball links which are larger in each camber link, that will give you extra thread and therefore strenght!

Anyone else notice all the different setup sheets?, the download-able one is different to the one that came in my kit, and Japan gets a different one also, I think the one with my kit also has some changes from even the build instructions.

Though now we have a Robert EC sheet and a Fukuda sheet.
