I know you're right but I hate to admit it that you're right so I'll just twist the matrix. Standby ...

by the way, good job on 3hobby, hope it does not turn into a mini mytsn, we have that already.
Thanks, a lot of work but a lot of fun in these cold winter nights!

There's a mini MyTSN? Where? Which one?

I thought it was a lot older than that. I think there's too many old farts in here, err ... I mean MarkP and InitialD of course.
I would say it takes on to know one, but you're too old to be called an old fart - I think the term is decrepit

I agree with you ... it takes one to know one ... does that make you a decrepit then?

Yeah, I know that friend too. Anything he sees orange he'll like and forgets all the bad points about it before when it was in a different colour!

Ok, as your "friend" has a leaning for orange things, ask him where we can get one from

Done installing the new servo saver and new diff clamp ring.
I have yet run the car, though due to weekdays activities. Please let me know what the new servo saver does to a car. From what I see it changes the ackermann angle quite a bit (more ackermann angle). What'd be the affect when running on a small track with lots of switchbacks (180 deg turns) ?

I've also not tried it yet. Hoping the rain will go away.

I believe the new servo saver gives LESS Ackerman angle but you physically get more turning angle on each wheel. Julius mentioned that mid steering would improve on large sweeping tracks. I think someone mentioned here that it was good for him too on smaller tight tracks with 180 degree hairpins.

What is the significance of the egg-shaped spacer on the front sway bar? I find that when I tighten that screw it will cause the suspension to bind.

Thanks,
Jim

The egg-shaped spacer is an eccentric cam and allows you to correct the droop once you install the anti-roll bar. You should set the front droop without the front anti-roll bar installed. But once you have re-installed the anti-roll bar after setting the droop, you'll find a slight difference in the droop right and left. You use the cam to correct this back to what you set.

Cheers, Mark.
