Ackerman can't direct control in rolling outside wheel steering .

Stock springs are perfect for the manual initial settings and by the way they are the springs used by Toso in the warm up race.
Shortly we will release a softer springs.
The progressive springs are very similar to the stock spring but with softer initial reaction.
The harder type is the "CHROME" color spring.

The LAB-C01 has the wheelbase setup adjustment.
The lower rear arm has a 2mm shim that can be moved in front or rear of the arm itself. In rear position we lower the wheel base ... but u need to turn (180) the upper arm as well.

Hi.

Usually a well registered clutch need from 1,3 to 1,5 mm shim.
If u have gap from shoe even without shims then of course the bell shud have a problem or (we just wonder) the bearing house is busy from something that may avoid the bearing to place in it correctly.
Feel free to contact the dealer where u bought the car to ask the bell replacement.

As for thge flywheel .. yes we used the 31,8 mm
