With both tires held right, blip the trigger full throttle for a fraction of a second. Does the diff slip? does the slipper slip? do the front wheels come off the ground? You need to set it so that the diff does NOT slip, but the slipper does. But the slipper should only slip the TINIEST bit... it should still grab enough to pull the front tires off the ground.
got it.
Will try it later after work.
I did not make it to the track today.

Thanks

Will try that as well Tom. Thanks

Why would you need to? The kit gives you a good amount of pistons to play with.

Here are the pics of the el cheapo low pro servo installed as I promised a couple days ago..I bought this one from a ebay seller here in the US,but will not recomend him since it took 3 weeks to get...funny thing is Hobby king carries the same servo and I ordered from the Ebay seller because it was in the states and should have been in my hands faster..LOL,yeah, right..
here is the link to this servo..
http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...13sec_32g.html

It centers nicely, the geartrain moves nice and freely,its MG,and weighs in at 28g with a .11 transit time @6v..as you can see from the pics I did have to shim the servo forward due to the mounting tabs being so close towards the output shaft face of the servo..I just used some plastic 3mm nuts I had in my hard ware box that are approx.4 mm spacers.
Have practiced with it and thus far seems to be a good cheap buy for putting the 210 on a diet..BTW it has a standard 25spline futaba output shaft..

I've had horrible luck with Bluebird servos. They're way more hit or miss quality wise than Hitec was years ago. I hope it holds up for you but I wouldn't count on it... Sorry to drizzle on your parade...

I have had a couple now and had no issues with them so I am hoping this one holds up also.No drizzle man,just wanted to let some know there are other lightweight options out there than the savox lo-pro that everybody is running in this buggy..Just been trying to put this portly buggy on a diet since outdoor dirt is right around the corner..have it down to 1535gms now still running a full size li-po.

Hi,
He now has the front tower/mounts in stock. Under servo weight and spare towers he should have in stock soon.
