2). gears
3). drive cups
4). shim kit
5). o-ring kit

the drive pins that hold the gears on the cross shafts were not in any of these bags- I had them in my pit box. You'll also need the 2.6mm screws from the original kit to hold the case together.
Hmmm, the pic of C0228 in the instructions seems to include THESE PARTS.

While surfing I also found these HEAVY DUTY GEARS. . . . . are the standard gears a bit "weak"?

Yes, your items 3, 4 and 5 aren't included in C0228, and thanks, I'll need to get some 2.6mm screws.

Thanks AFM. That's kind of what I figured.

That is not lowering your roll center, it is raising it just so you know. Which usually works quite a bit better with rubber tires.

Hmmm . . I made up some 1mm shims but was a bit worried about sufficient hex engagement of the wheel. Maybe it isn't a problem
I might be able to mod some V-One items.

Not correct. Servo saver kit comes with 3 pieces named "a", "b", and"c".
"a" is the longest "b" is 1mm shorter amd "c" 2mm shorter than "a".
"a" is the one that gives you the most ackerman (more steering), and "c" the least ackerman (less steering), but the 3 give you ackerman.
The difference in ackerman between the 3 pieces is very little, and only expert hands will notice the difference.

According to official Japanese drivers from Mugen, the usual setting is with the "a" piece and in some ocassions the "b" piece, specially when you have a lot of grip and you wan't less steering.

How do you change ackerman? simply by changing one piece for the other.

i think he wants to know the easiest way for changing that servo saver thingy. Example, what to take off or disconnect and what not to.

OOOPS!! well... the only way is taking the radio plate out and dissasembling the servo saver...there is no other way.

But still, if he want's more steering, "a" piece gives you the most, and he allready has it on.
Maybe there are other issues to look at his settings to know why he isn't getting enough.....

Default ackerman

the article in xtreme rc from robbie collins says the A ackerman gives u less steering in the corner on tracks with very good grip, im running on a parkinglot track that tends to be a little slick in my opinion, and i had to fight my car threw the turns with the A ackerman?
I just put the C ackerman in and ill see what it does.
