I haven't tried his rear tower mount, but can see why he has done that, interesting and as always with Alcyon a well thought out design.

I will order one and test it.



On a different topic. I found out that the C-Hubs and steering knuckles from the Xray T4 are a direct fit for the Lazer ZX. They are available in medium, strong plastic, and aluminium and the C-Hubs are 0, 2, 4, and 6 degrees.

The knuckles have Ackerman adjustment and the C-hubs also have a grub screw to lock the outer hinge pin.

Pictures are below. Pretty cool!

I replaced the stock ZX C-Hubs (0 caster angle) with these so it must only be appropriate for the shorter version.



I guess you are using the longer ujs...

Default servo position

Hi All,


Just wanted to share this as it makes the steering adjustment a lot easier. All you need is a low profile servo and LA361 or the expensive 39655 equivalent.
With this I have a lot more space for the servo saver and I can also use the inner hole on the steering assembly without having the link hit the belt cover.



Cheers,


Ubi
