I got it functional... Still has a lot less throw but maybe I will work on the diff case and work the dremel... Its working nice and smoothe and should be 3x's as strong... We will see! Its no big deal cause no class here so this is my toy, play on the track with and hope someone thinks its cool?

I didn't shim the top plate, I shimmed the steering posts. I got the new servo tube and it works really slick not having any issues with binding or throw. I had to use three 5mm losi shims between the upper bearing and the arm on the steering post. If I remember right I didn't need any shims on the servo saver side.

Actually here is the truck (Same as Hyper 10TT - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1HcdGCEIxo0) I think it should go a little faster.

Default Finally

Finally got around to getting mine ready to go. I think. Mamba Max Pro, Tekin SC4X 4.5t 14 tooth pinion, Futaba BLS351, Avid Bearings, STRC upgrades. New body coming next week so I can screw up another one. It's a bullet out in the street. I will find out how it does at the track in a couple weeks.

It looks like you got the wrong tire setup or maybe the track is to wet? Sliding too much. What kinda of track is that? I am still trying to overcome that nose diving issue.
I had one of the fastest guys at my track drive it. Wow, he made that truck look good...hahaa. So I know its me.

The Sparrow, Losi 10T and Ofna 10TT are all roughly 11inch wheelbase. The Sparrow is likely longer due to that huge wing

Amain, Tower and even Ebay have tons of parts for the TT not to mention the Hyper SC which borrows alot of parts from the TT, and short course trucks and parts are all over the place.

besides...TT sounds alot cooler than Sparrowhawk....

Here is a video of the Sparrow XXT.

Do you have pictures to show them. STRC racing website doesn't show them? Part numbers if possible?

It was the tires. I put my Panther Switch Super Soft slicks from my stadium truck on the rear and it drove 10x better tonight. I'm gonna get a full set of 4 and some rims this coming week and get some better footage up. It is a hard packed clay surface. I let a friend drive mine after the races tonight and he did the same thing, made it look awesome lol.
