New servo saver: those two holes is nearer to the centerline as well as longer to the front of the car compared with standard s saver. Should provide less ackerman by design.
Roger that.

I wont be coming to the race - again - sorry dude, but I will try my best next time, when things have been sorted out.

I've ordered the new rear bars and a mega shirt from DTS JITC.

Onkel Sow has spun a yarn about flying off to America this week, just so he can go to the track (which just happens to be his LOCAL track) and practice each day
I have proof that I'm in the US and you have proof that NiMo is spending his week off at the track without me.

Yeah, if you have time you'd look at where you want the on-power steering and work the ARB, front caster and DRS in conjunction with each other.

Have you managed to get your front arms un binded? Lemme know how you did it.
Crashed, either you're not practising enough or you're not looking at the clutch.

I find the yellow cluth definitely wears. Not as dramatic as the black but it sitll wears a little more. Tkae your pinion clutch bell out and look at your clutch, if it does not appear to be wearing out then its probably glazed and is therefore not performing as it should be.

Yes, he did but I got round that trick ... I got someone else to order the engine for me. A full option one will be waiting for me on my return.

May the force be with the OS one Oct 3rd though!

Took mine apart and cleaned it all last night - I think I had this problem, too.
I think I had the clutch gap set too small and there was too little end play.
This time I rebuilt it with a 6mm clutch gap - as best as I could measure it and left, as Glenn recommended, 0.1mm endplay. To ensure I got 0.1, I added 0.1 spacers until there was no endplay and then removed the last added spacer.

Lets see if it makes a difference

Not sure why ... maybe because you're glad I can't practise?
