Step Three, Suspension and steering


Suspension arms


Not really alot to say about this step, went together well.

However i am i little confused by what it said in the manual. Its say its important that the arms move freely if not ream the holes. I built the arms and there have a free movement but aren't free as they support there own weight but I don't feel its the arms. Its how the shims on the pins tighten up.

I'm a little confused about it. So this lead me to have a conversation with Ian @ ardent as to the best policy i think.

Steering

Steering means turnbuckles and I hate doing turnbuckles!


Rips my fingers to shreds and these were no different. Felt very silly trying to thread a cup on the wrong way. But i got them all done and to the correct lengths.


Next was the steering rack itself. Went together very well, prethreaded holes for all components make building your Xray a breeze really.


pictured is the servo saver fitted (sorry for poor image), I heard some stories about this, how the manual is wrong and it doesn't go together properly etc. I have to say i couldn't fault the manual (on the servo saver section), everything went together fine and although i haven't tested it on a servo saver seems to operate perfectly.

  1. I always check they drop under their own weight. I would just remove a shim and try again. Then after running it for a night check to see if its feeling more loose. I will then re-shim it.

  2. Thanks for comment, I was thinking thinner shims maybe but i have decided to use and see what happens and go from there. Put a bit of use on it and see what happens. Cheers for your advise.
