Ok i've been building my SS and have it fairly complete now, but the wheels are on funny angles - Like toe out on the front? WTF?





Can someone please measure their controll rods and tell me what length they are ment to be - I fillowed the setup in the manual, but it just looks wrong...











Could someone measeure the marked distances for front and rear - the manual said 44mm for the front and 44.5mm for the rear.

Morphy, you probably don't want to hear this but I just measured mine (Savage 25 RTR) and the front is 44mm with the back at 45mm. Best as I could hold the tape measure.


BTW... Any chance of you getting out for a bash with us today?

You dont have to go by what the ruler or instructions say! The allignment was clearly wrong, all you have to do is twist the tie rods untill you get the desired allignment
