DS thanks for all the info.

Not knocking your work on the throttle ok as I realise that you have to do that to get it to work and I will have to do the same thing.

But that is disgusting, we pay $700 for this kit which is rather expensive and we have to make an abortion on the throttle linkage.

If anyone here knows someone at Capricorn, tell them it's disgusting, how hard would it make to put a hollowed out area in the corner of the fuel tank to clear the carb slide.

Cheers and thanks for the info.

I have tested the M3 fuel tank and it works good. You only have to enlarge the back hole of the tank by 1mm.
Another advantage of the M3 tank is that he has more place for the steering servo so it is easier for the servo arm.
The bottom of the tank is 3mm higher than the original, better for the accu, but the weight of the fuel (or gravity center of the tank) is also higher.

Well I will admit when I'm wrong.

Capricorn, the way you have yours is fine, it looks good and works well.

I will try mine out today.

But I think maybe Capricorn have changed some things on the kits at some stage because there is a few things on my kit don't fit like on some of the other guys pics on here.

I agree the solution shown by Capricorn looks a lot nicer. I decided to mount the throttle rod from the bottom because it makes it easier to reach the low speed needle with still the body on the car. Don't want to loose time in the pits with my mechanic fiddling around to reach the lsn.

Question. Is there any way to adjust the angle of the front upper arm brackets for active or non-active caster??

I have made use of all the slop in the motor holes already.

Never mind I figured it out. I didn't have the 2 speed shaft bearings seated 100% in the plastic inserts.
