With my current 1/10 buggy I'm using a standard size servo, but it's a 4WD kit. Any of you using a standard size servo and running a Futaba 4PLS have any pictures of electronics placement? Makes it easier to plan out what you want to buy in one go
Just switched over to mid-motor 17.5 blinky with the following components:
servo: XP DS1015 (full size)
receiver: Sanwa RX471
ESC: Orion R10 Pro

Layout is very similar to Tebo's with a shorty battery in front of the ESC. MM is much faster/responsive than RM for me. Only problem I have to figure out is how to correct some vicious oversteer/twitchiness.

Nice, thanks for the pic E73. I'll be carrying over the Orion R10 Pro, Orion VST2 6.5T and perhaps this Savox full sized servo, but I'm toying with getting rid of all the Savox stuff I have.

Narrowing it is increases rear grip on tighter turns. It also induces a bit of high-speed understeer.

I have tried both and run Tebo's set up which is in the middle of the adjustment spectrum.
I appreciate your answer, but that wasn't exactly what I was asking. What are the narrow and wide equivalents with the standard 3 degrees of toe when using the adjustable hinge pin mounts?

I think this may answer your question.
I hope it does for you

Does the exotek rear hangers use the adjustable bushings or the delrin suspension balls?

The ones I have use the delrin balls. But I might have an older version though.

Hmm. I'd rather have the adjustable inserts. I guess I'll just go with the kyosho ones.

No the extoek ones use the delrin inserts only, you have to buy the set of hangers you wish to run, ie narrow front/rear or wide front/rear. They are really solid though and fit perfect.

Thanks mike, which ones do you think would be better suited for high bite carpet and clay? Midmotor.

I prefer the wide mounts on our high bite clay track, it gives more on power steering, I would get the UM521 or 521-1 arms as well.

RF is C-in
RF2 is C-out

The new hangers for the RB6 are B-out

Please correct me if I'm wrong, but doesn't that chart indicate that B-out is RF2?
