Always make a double check on steering linkages from servo.
Well done GoldFinger ... thanks!

packetdreamer, there you have it. GoldFinger beat D to it.

You mean Euro's ...

I think he might just be doing that. He loves seeing the best-of-best. I respect him for taking the trouble to go to the Serpent Asia Challenge recently.

Sir Julius have a great tip about preventing popping out dogbone when using front diff on his post.
About trackwidht, on normal condition 1mm narrower in front should be good and balance.
When traction rolling is an issue, narrow the rear end 1mm from the front. This is not always a good solution but I solve many traction roll issue with this adjustment.

Try tighten more until yuo cannot turn 45T pulley while holding R + L axle.
The rear diff slipping is always a problem that many would make when assembling.

If you're using front ball diff, then you need to put some spacers in between the dogbones if you use 200 mm front trackwidth.

Remember to put some spacers in the wheel axle side to make sure the dogbone does not sit in too deep where the slots in the wheel axle will catch the dogbone shaft and break it if you're on maximum wheel lock.
