    Eliminating bump steer

    Trying to run my servo flat. How is this done and still be able to get rid of bump steer ? Seems like no matter what I try , the right front toes in between 1 and 2 degrees when I compress the chassis. I have been able to eliminate it from the left but not the right. Any setup tips on how to stop bump steer with a flat mounted servo?

    Thanks

    What chassis are you running?

    It's my own chassis using a KSG front end.

    A flat servo is harder to get bumpsteer solved because it's hard to get a good angle on the right turnbuckle. It usually requires using lots of spacers underneath the ballcup/Dubro/TC6. Usually you want to get it to the point where the connector is about to touch the inside of the wheel. To test, draw a straight line on a peice of paper. Turn your wheels about 11 degrees, and line it up with the line on the paper. Look down from straight above and compress the suspension and see if the wheel moves. Each wheel needs to be solved independently .

    Thank you for the reply James. Maybe I just haven't used enough spacing on the right side.
