Perhaps a cool trick to add is the short wheelbase mod if you're having tight hairpins. Especially since you got the rear part of the car stable.

802145 and it comes with the new diff ring.

That would be the same as the 3Racing one. Use that and the front section will hold up crashes better. Of course not the ones that go straight into the wall.

In my opinion, that's pretty heavy ! If you have Associated 50 or 60 wt would be about right.

Yes, that is correct. I guess a lot of people complained about setting up the 705 that made it almost undrivable out of the box. Serpent probably included an out of the box setup which was possible to drive on most tracks which would mean an understeer type of setup.

Perhaps I think it's time to ask those two old guys to pass the RING to you instead of hording it for themselves to try and look young.
Don't be jealous ... are you looking old and needing it back?

From which link? The one on Mark's signature or from 3hobby.com's download section?

What is the part number for the new servo saver? I am using a Futaba S9402 servo.

I have the cf front upper brace from RDlogics

InitialD, Associated 80 wt shock oil

With the stock setup, the car has lot of rear traction.

I'll give your advices a try and see what happens
Roy

Try the setup I posted and work backward from there.

You will not complain about push. that's for sure

Mark, to prepare better, drag the old D along with you!

Speaking of the new diff ring i put that on and it rubs slightly But it is no big deal

get your hands on the new servo saver and the steering linkage needs to be at 39.5 - 40mm to give you correct throw
I would suggest that yes you do use the new ackerman arm. But I would not measure the linkage as it can be different for each servo. Instead I would make sure that your servo is centered (no trim) and then change the length of the arm until the ackerman arm is pointing straight ahead.
