True. Having a forum like this does not mean that personal websites should not exist ! All in all, I think it's more of a personal preference... For me, I just like the dynamics and interaction of a forum. Giving and receiving information is a two way thingy.

Just thought you should know that you need to take off the radio plate and the steering cam to fit the servos. Especially the steering servo !
Yeah... I've been cleaning the dust off

I am still confused about this steering link problem?

D, which track are you doing your testing on?
Which other track is the nearer one, which has pit tables, shaded, reasonable tire wear on 40 shore, relatively clean and pebble free and reasonably big?

I suggest if you're not in the hurry, install your radio as per the manual. Steer the car left and right and then I think you'll see the problem for yourself. Then you'll see that the only way to solve the problem is to have a shorter linkage.

If you using a modded engine like Max, JP or similar with that, just go with stock ratio but make the 2 speed to engange a little later.
If its stock engine, just prepare the smallest pinion in ur box.
