Servo Flat Mod
I decided to see what it would take to run the servo flat. I used a one piece Aluminum Servo mount from a TC3. Cut the transponder ear off. It takes about 1/2 inch of spacers on the steering arms to remove bump steer. Seems to be rigid enough. I used a female ball stud and a long button head screw on each arm. Ackerman seems OK. I'll test it on the track this weekend. It has rained all week since my last post. Chassis required a clearance cut for the servo horn. A smaller servo saver would probably be the ticket for this mod. This is a heavy duty Kimbrough model. I used one factory hole on the chassis for the servo mount. I drilled and countersunk the right hand hole.

Running the servo high caused it too move around in the slippery mounts a bit. Never had this problem with another car.
