Sao Paolo? Are you pitting for Michael Salven or are you shooting a vid of the worlds like Ray Woods?

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.
That's worth a few credit points to you and Mark. The toe out is barely noticeable at 1mm but I imagine this needs attention as you go 2 or 3mm.

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.
Ah, you seccumbed to the FORCE!

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.
You mean you still haven't for a shoremeter yet???

Who in their right mind would go to beautiful Sao Paolo to watch old men wrestling little toy cars going round in circles?

There's lots of natural wonders there to be ... err admired by the discerning gentlemen.

Sorry Onkel Sow. I think I need to exchange login names with you. A little slow on playing with new toys at the moment.

Sow it is about time we appointed D as our official test driver He can do the testing and setup once crashed has finished his work and it will give us more time for the cocktails

Test drivers are hard to come by because of the risk they take and are therefore highly paid individuals. Business class ticket please ! You need business class to enjoy the Golden Lounge at KLIA. You can put Uncle Crash is economy class.

Yeah, who wouldn't be if they have to wrench nitro cars!!!

So now I have to revise my statement:-

Who in their right mind would go to beautiful Sao Paolo to watch dirty old men wrestling little toy cars going round in circles?

My dear friend, it was YOU who convinced me on 3hobby the other day.

This is the objective, if there was such a trip, has changed!

P/S: I've got a new toy for you to look at, check out 3hobby.com.
