Trinity 40wt is thinner than Serpent 30wt ! But I have a friend who runs then on his 710 with red front and blue rear spring and it works wonderful with oneway front. I think the track we run on is quite similar to yours in Surabaya.

Are you saying that you've got the RING now?

Precisely... I think it's a matter of setting the steering throw on the Tx.

I think some people will not agree with me but having lower roll center makes the front roll more and therefore not necessarily faster steering input. I find higher roll center in the front makes the car move left to right faster as the front of the car does not roll so much. No doubt lower front roll center gives more on power steering but higher front roll center makes the car's transition changes from left to right etc better.

I did not use that D, it`s just an example for harder spring combined with much softer oil will make the car react a lot quicker to driver input and harder to drive because of that rebound strenght. Serpent 30WT = 55W Trinity to my opinion.

I`m now leanning towards using all around softer suspension as it gives kind of flying off the ground when cornering (ex: masami style), it`s not like full force stop and go (hara/surikarn style). I need Tony V from Xray to do the translation that the pros used.. but I guess u r not reading this threat do you Mr. V?

Hi sparksy,

Like Kreidel said, that is not a new part so if the old ackerman arm doing well, that linkages should be no problem.
Let me guess your problem, you were trying to measure/watch it closely without top deck being mounted.
If it true, just mount the top deck and the bolt will no longer kiss the bulkhead when he swinging.

I dont know why it hits, but it did. Mine not as bad as Picards did.

It has nothing to do with tx setting of the throw, as it is around the centering position of the servo saver, not at either lock.

Its not a big deal, I only had to take a small anount of material off to allow the clearence.

No, the problem was found with the topdeck on.

Maybe it is an isolated case, forget I mentioned it.

I was just curious as I would not like to have a rub develop during a race... Have you ever shimmed the servo saver spring from the top and have the assembly move farther down the post?

Not more steering faster car reaction.
