I my futaba BLS servo yesterday, it really made a difference in the lap times. I think its slower and more analog something like that but helps a lot.

On another note, ran the full exotek front steering, its awesome as well. I noticed there are two holes at the front, I hope to god exotek replaces this part from the original car, I am on my third plate now (http://www.amainhobbies.com/product_...n-Plate-Type-B). The two holes are here on the front

Sure looks an awful lot like somebody elses layout I know

1 piece of advice, you get far better transponder performance when it's mounted horizontally instead of vertically. Might not be an issue for you, but if your RD ever says your signal strength is low, put that guy on top of the servo instead of behind it. I hear its also important to keep it off an alu chassis.

Along with the aluminum losi 22 servo horn fitting great, their ballstud shim package is great too if you don't mind using plastic. Comes with .5mm, 1mm and 2mm shims.

Ballstud washers
