    Steering servohorn setup



    https://skydrive.live.com/redir?resi...C6s8PGSGK75ttE

    My Summit has the "Blue Arrow setup" at the servohorn.
    I think I will try the "Red Arrow setup" to get more steering power to the wheels.
    I still use the stock (2075) servos.

    If I go for new stronger servos what will be the best setup then. Blue or red?

    What setup are you runnig? Blue or red?
    Have you tried both? Feel any difference?

    Using the holes marked with the red arrows will give your servos more mechanical advantage and thus not work them as hard, but you will lose some travel and your turning radius will increase.

    With everything comes compromise. As easy as it is to change do a little testing to see what suits you best.

    The summit comes shipped with the linkages in the blue holes if that matters.

    If your summit was new you should have also received the corresponding steering stop (for the red holes) (correct me if I'm wrong) I don't know if its that big of a deal that you need to change that as well, someone else can chime in.

    Upgraded servos will turn the wheels more readily and I would recomend the blue holes for the smaller turning radius.
