It is the distance between holes: 10mm, 11mm, 12mm.
The closer the holes on the servo saver, the less ackermann efect you have.

Ackermann efect has the most influence on low speed turns.

If your car steers well off-power but pushes on-power, use more ackermann and reduce dual rate. The opposite situation less ackermann and more dual rate.

I know that but shimo is running his own car as well as other world class driver with the servo laid down I think for lower center of gravity jus wanted to know if y'all tried it and see any diff??

i used to use the lay down servo before i got the km top deck/xray tank so comparing the kyosho upright and laydown verions i thought they were the same on the track. it adds complicated linkage and not much else to me

i run the KO half height servos though and NIMH, when I ran upright i mounted my lipo reg on the bottom of the throttle servo. there was no noticeable difference in lap time. running nimh though, i think the cg is higher than it should be with upright servos.

I could see a difference maybe if you had full servos (10g heavier each).. but the cost to the avg racer of having the linkage out in the open for a side collision is too high to me. i've done as others and moved my receiver to the pipe side for weight (ko micro isn't much) but it also protects it, not that i have ever had a runaway or anything from a hit.

basically, look elsewhere unless you have it laying around.. the evo2/shimo top deck is better than the previous versions unless you have something else like the KM or capricorn for the xray tank. the reason its better is because starting with the evo2 they started incorporating more flex in the front of the car (really shown with shimos worlds car having that two piece front deck, the fact that he used wheel discs and other random attempts to get the car to steer at the worlds)

i agree it adds more complicated linkage.. and also the servo is exposed.. so just hope u dont get t-boned.

plus the right side of my car is heavier than my left. so it works out good.

i run a low profile standing throttle servo, and i put weights under it.

i also mount the servo sitting under the top deck, rather than on top.

hi guys!
i want to ask something.
when you set your rear height you set 1+ from that are you seeing in the tool? or 1.5mm?since the chassis has an angle and it is not straight like front.
so 1mm or 1.2-1.3mm more?
