Then, before you try anything else to get rid of the push, go for the front one-way instead...

Thats correct D
What i did is i cut not only the red part, but the whole thing!
It should be no problem because the reciever will be well protected and cant get out or move when the protector-box is mounted...
RCJAY: if you want i can post some pics....

Disconnecting the rear sway bar slows lateral weight transfer in the rear, increases rear traction, and actually increases the cars tendency to push (understeer).
Hook up the rear sway bar again and set the two aluminum collars with set screws so that about 3 mm of the sway bar sticks out past the collar, and give this a try.
If you're going to disconnect the sway bar to reduce the push, you want to disconnect the front one.

With 0 deg toe in, 1.5 camber, 6mm setup ride height
Ball end mounted on top: maximum turn is 25.5 deg(inside tire) and 14 deg(outside tire)
Ball end mounted bellow : max 24.5(inside), 15.5(outside).
In real condition, as the car leans hard (1 side of chasis hit the ground) the inside tire angle is increase about 2 deg and the outside is reduces about the same value.

As you can see the ackerman is angling so extremely.
I think this is playing a big part to resist the car to turns tighter, coz the tire slip angle amount is too big to overcome.

Please share your thought....

I kind of feel the same way, and appears to make sense !!
I would also like some input on this issue !!! Ideas/Tips/Trick/Good/Bad ????

The linkage on his car was installed as per the manual (ball joints below the servo saver).

So you're saying installing the ball end below the servo saver as per the manual will give a more agressive steering due to less Ackerman angle?

This is what Bruno Heeramans has got to say about Ackerman...

A large Ackermann angle (ball joints above the servo saver) gives you smooth, predictable steering. You'll be able to round the corners nicely without all four tires trying to force the car in a different direction. A smaller Ackermann angle (ball joints below the servo saver) on the other hand can give you more aggressive steering, aspecially entering the corners. However, it isn't guaranteed that the front won't wash out now and then. Neither is a smooth cornering radius. It can be useful an high-traction tracks, if your car tends to oversteer in the middle of the corners, and you'd like a little more turn-in. Not to mention the psychological impact on the person driving right in front of you when you're entering corners.
