I got 2 thick and 4 thin shims in my kit for the rear camberlink...

I used the 2 spare shims for the arms.... I had to sand them a little to get a perfect fit. Then I wanted to experiment with the camberlink.... lucky for me my LHS had split a kit for parts, I got the packet of shims from it for 5 bucks.... It also had 2 thick and 4 thin.

I got some .010" (0.25mm) 1/8" diameter shims (electric motor shims) and put some on the rear A-arms to remove the uneven movement. Needed 2 on each side only.

One thing that puzzles me: My car have the front axle underdriven - rolls less than the rear axle - is that true (basically it's a rear wheel drive)? Just ever seemed that the front end should be slightly overdriven.

I messed up the assembly swapping some pulleys? How is your car?

Today is the day for their virgin run (if none says me that I messed up with the pulleys).

Are a good idea if you have metal gears on your servo, if not, go with the plastic servo horns that make Serpent (part no. 1612 for Futaba type spline).

Scrounge through the box till you get all the bits of paper out and read them before building.

I missed the itty bitty one that had the rear arm correction.... Lucky I went to set my droop before its debut run, would have looked like a tool fixing it at the track.

Yah, I did the same thing too.

I don't bother screwing in the upstop screws, I never use them
