Ok I guess I should update my setup
I've ordered a HobbyWing Xerun V2.1 ESC and a Yeah Racing 8.5T Hackmoto motor which should arrive next week! I got some Short arm MST alloy front uprights installed on it today. I have also install some Square 48mm R31 wide angle CVD's. Got huge steering angle now!

the good thing is that you lost alot of your ackerman issue with the new nuckles, the bad thing is you still have alot of ackerman angle lol  

mods look solid though. good job
Keep Drifting Fun

Thanks Mate, I used some Tamiya metal bearings (the crappy non ball race type) as spacers behind the 10x15 bearings to stop the front bearing being pushed out

Is the the standard top deck the same length as the CF one?

Yeah I think it is as the wheel base is the same I think it's just where the rear bulkhead screw holes are positioned that is different? slightly further back
