I'd suggest starting out with what you have!

Then depending on conditions start experimenting with caster and front roll center and sway bars.

i read the tips and tricks pertaining to steering on the dalton shop page, but if i could get some clarification/assistance, it would be appreicated.

right now i have the servo set so that when it is in nuetral the horn is at 90degs (pointing straight up). the link from the servo horn to the servosaver is the right length so that when the servo is in the nuetrual position, the servosaver is pointing straight toward the front of the car. the links from the servosaver to the knuckles are equal and the car tracks straight.

now my question/problem is this: when i steer to the left (servosaver spins clockwise) the servosaver moves all the way until it hits the plastic part that holds the hingepins (good)

when i steer to the right (servosaver spins counter clockwise) the servosaver moves and just before it is about to hit the part that holds the hingepins on the left side fo the car the movement gets all "mushy". this is because the servo horn is pulling the linkage towards teh back of the car and this causes he plastic ball cup to press against the servo horn. (bad)

is anyone else experiencing this, or know to to resolve it. i thought about tilting the servo horn toward the front while the servo is in nuetral, but i was nto sure if this would effect the rate of steering in one direction over the other.

if you have any suggestions, please, lay 'em down. thanks.

Hi all

What is supposed to be better with the soft rubber caps and the foam inserts in dampers?

When i installed it, i couldnt move the piston all the way up, it kept coming back? I had to remove some oil to get rebound right, is that the way to do it?

What is the proper rebound? And what good/bad does it do?

Yes. I've tried it a couple weeks ago and was very happy with the way it handled.

You could say the same about many things we buy for our cars. Likewise, you could also the same about many other things ... TV, HiFi etc.

Ah, with a JP FX 3 port, why should you need to be relegated to join the rubber tire class? I'm sure the 3 port kicks in every bit of butt in the outlaw 5 port engine class.
It'll be interesting to see during the next club race. They plan to have tyres open. Touring body and engine open.

There's a couple of guys with JP-FX, one made it to the A-Finals at last weekend's Rubber Nationals ... his car definitely smokin'
