IF you find the M body too loose, try putting min of 3mm of spacers between the body standoffs and the rear wing. You may have to trim the wing slightly to pass tech, but try it that way as well. The stratus 3.1 is always an excellent choice.

I have it set exactly the same I tend not to listen to others & try it out myself before I pass judgement on the body.

Wondering if any u guys have experienced this same problem? My steering servo saver is way close to the front drive belt. Its virtually touching, i am going to dremel a little of the servo saver just to ensure the belt wont rub under acceleration.. the pully position is not adjustable and the pully is installed correctly.. is this normal??

This is not normal, maybe you have got some play on the pulley shaft. And when you pull the trigger it moves horizontally, you can place some thin shims to solve this problem
I have something like 0.4mm of clearence between the belt and servo saver case using normal belt (I think SP is wider)

Well, the 5 RRR's i've had all had this issue -some rub hard up, some barely touch ( strange actually)... just get a dremel and slightly cut a groove into the servo saver, it's an easy fix!

So far, I only noticed that the servo saver was touching the front drive belt when you are using a differential with the loosest setting, you should change to the #10 servo saver. If not, your #11 and #12 servo will hit the differential case and sometimes the front belt especially if you have set the belt tension to the loosest setting.

Changing your servo saver to #10 to avoid rubbing against the bell is not the best recommendations especially if you do not know the effect that it will change your ackerman. you can try shimming the one way using the kyosho shim kit

Based on the manual I downloaded from the Kyosho website, it is recommended that you use the #10 servo saver when using a front differential. The #11 is recommended when using oneway

I still couldn't understand why there are racers out there with a #11 ackerman can't run a front diff. We have 3 RRR here last year, all of us ran between a 1-way and front diff constantly, and neither of us have the problem with the #11 hitting the diff casing.

My car RRR has a horizontally play on both rear arms and both upper and lower front arms.. I'm planing to put some thin shims in the shaft to solve this problem, but I noticed this problem on my friend Evo and more 2 RRR, I'm intrigued, is this play a part of the car project? Or should I take it out? Just wondering with that helps in the stability of the car or not

Guys
please help
I learnt from Kyosho what 0G in Setup Sheet mean. Correct if I'm wrong. To set your camber on 0G you have to disconnect the shock and sway bars and let the arms rest with the wheels off the ground. The question is. How can I do that? Any specify tool? I have no idea
ps: I have hudy setup station plus downstop blocks

another doubt. How drop affect in the car handling? My car has more drop on the front then rear and a guy on the track said this isn't positive and that I was loosing stability.. he said to set no drop, but I hesitate . I noticed when I break the front of the car dives What's the best set-up?
