    That didnt work out. It did make the steering closer to True Ackerman, but I wanted less ackerman and I might have worded it incorrectly before. I want the wheels to remain as parallel to each as possible throughout the full cycle of steering. This is what I want to achieve..

    as opposed to this (True Ackerman)

    Basically I need to get the tie rod closer to the wheel or go for a bunch of toe-in which I dont want to do.

    Ah.

    Then couldn't you use the tabs that Cory posted but flip them so the end hole is farther out?

    I could, but honestly, its a little more work then I can do right now. I still havent got my tools setup in the garage yet and I dont want to buy anything I dont really need. Its not a big deal really, I dont need those few extra degrees to beat Cory

    have you thought about JB weld locking the rear diff to save a few bucks over the rear spool?
    or are there other advantages to the spool? i JB welded the ball diff in my HPI and its held all this time ;)
    or if it has bevel gear diff, it would be just like JB weld locking the old TLT axles.

    was just a thought, might save a couple bucks for the replacement battery or something:thumbsup:

    Appreciate the tip, and its funny, i just ordered a few parts for the Sakura and had the solid spool in my cart but then thought, nah, I will just JB Weld it:mrgreen: did order the front one-way, aluminum spur gear holder, 19t pullies and the vertical motor mount.
