I centered and sub-trimmed the steering servo with my radio then pre fit the servo and retract unit to the mount. Next I bent up the offset wheel strut and installed the wheel. I found the Spider wire that Ken recommends in the instructions and found it to be excellent material for a pull / pull system like this. Itís kind of spendy if you have to get 300 yards but I figure this is cool stuff that Iíll use again for sure. I also like to be able to adjust the tension on my pull cables so I opted to make use of some long straight fishing hooks I found that fit the DuBro EZ Links perfect when cut of before the bend.
