Thanks. Was not aware the castor blocks changed.

Should I update the arms to the 2.0 at the same time?

Not needed. The key difference between the 1.0 and 2.0 arms were moving the bottom shock mount forward a little to clear the steering link. With the bellcranks that is no longer necessary. In fact, many who run the 2.0 mid-motor with bellcranks switch back to the 1.0 arms to gain the 3rd, outer shock hole that the 2.0 arms lost.

Great! Thanks for the help!

I did the bellcrank update. Wow made a huge difference in steering stability and consistency.

Noob here. I want to change out the servo in my losi 22 buggy. It's the RTR version. Do I need to take off the front end? Undo shocks? Wanted to ask before I start taking things apart. Thx

You can typically get the servo out by pulling out the bottom 4 screws that hold the bottom of the servo mounts to the car and then the top two screws that attach the mounts to the front brace. Then you can usually pull the servo out the back and then unscrew it from the arm that attaches the servo to the steering slider.

So you do not need to take the front end apart.
