Well, I guess you must be one of the lucky ones who had a good pair/set.

Hi Kevin, yeah, noticed that with the ARB, too The new unpainted version (ahem) is now central

In theory it should make our weapon unbeatable in fast sweeper but a bit suffer in very low speed corner.
What do you think ?
I heard this from a good friend of mine, one who isn't too old or the holder of the Ring

this leads to more corner speed. And, becuase the servosaver is longer the curve radius is a little smaller. But when there is very little grip the turn in is a little poorer

Now you why I don't post pics of my car ! Turns out that they look even more dirty than in real life. Funny how somebody would want to sabotage you.

What do you think ?
Bro, the shorter wheelbase mod should take care of the low speed corner, no?

Doesn't the mod also affect the ackerman?

You got me thinking along the same lines... Bravo. I guess the RING is with you this weekend.

Moving the arms behind angles the steering linkage as the servo saver is at fixed position while the linkage to the steering block gets pulled behind when the wheelbase is shortened. Sort of like mimicking the new servo saver... I guess it makes the front wheels toe out a little too if you didn't adjust and compensate the steering linkage lenght.

Last week I tested the short wheelbase mod. From 1 mm shorter to 2 mm shorter, the car felt better and better. I'll try 3 mm this weekend. The car felt easier to turn. Sort of like less scrubbing during the turn on sharp apexes with the rear end still very stable.

I hope to test the new Serpent rims I got too. 40 shore rear and fronts. First impressions were the compound seem to be more firm like what you noted.
