3 mm inwards and 2 mm upwards from the original pivot pin hole location on the front bulkhead. See attached pic that I have posted earlier.

Yes, it is quite tricky to get both holes to line up correctly and equally for both left and right upper arms.

Default Front Shock Placement (705)

Mark, this is how I do it on the 705. I do not tighten it down hard. Just enough that the M3 screws do not bind the shock movement.

Yep, that's how I had mine, but mine seemed to bind even though I didn't screw them right down. As if the tops twisted a little and hit against the button head of the screw.


Cheers, Mark.

Here's my clockwork D1 picture InitialD

We've got an airline at the track now, so I can blast all that dirt off my car and no longer need to use my Dirt-Filter (c)

Cheers, Mark.

I believe in HK you can get Tornado fuels right? Stick with it. I have very good experiences with it so far. Very good power and easy to tune.

The pictures have gone to my head. It isn't even friday

Here's a pic where you can see the 1/8th servo saver fitment and the solid front diff (sweet)!

I own up... I'm feeling really jealous already? Play the car more often !! It is too clean... Arrrhh !

I see that you use an allen cap screw to lock the servo saver onto the servo... Nice and easy right?

Perhaps the reason why you're still getting good steering with the front solid is because of the 1/8th scale servo. They give more agressive steering... Just a thought.

It's a clean machine

The allen screws are indeed much easier to fit - but it is only that I lost the screw that I ended up fitting the allen headed screw Lots of screw lock this time

Maybe you're right about the servo saver giving me a lot of steering - certainly seem to get a lot of lock on the steering.

I'm going to alter the sensetivity on my RX unit for the breaking - I can program in different curves. The travel of the lever is too long when I want to break. I'll make it so that a small bit of travel in the breaking-direction results in a larger movement on the servo. This should give me more responsive breaking

Then I need to turn up my ATV a bit - it is only running on 40% at the moment. I probably haven't seen the full breaking potential as yet

Don't get carried away with too much braking... You need to maintain speed around corners to go fast. Brake just enough to slow the car down.

You must remember that at home, it can be a clean machine but on the track, it is a mean machine !

The power of the breaks is going to my head

It's a mean, lean, clean machine!
