Yeah. To me, it never felt quite right. I run at Trackside in Milwaukee. Medium to high grip. Track is a little bumpy but nothing overboard. I've run it on all types of layouts and it works well. It definitely changes the handling characteristics so their will be some time getting used to it.

Depending on the hole used on the hub, the camber link can rub on the springs. I switched them around to get a little more clearance. Obviously this is only good for 0* hubs.

Based on the specs on the Savox site and what is listed in the manual it looks like you should start with 3mm of spacers. I set mine up so the servo linkage to the bell crank is in a straight line.

Hey guys hoping someone could shed some light.. so I recently replaced the out drives on my diff. No big deal got it all back together and adjusted correctly. ( i think) Then started the problem. . I've been eating through spur gears..the first one broke the pinion too where the set screw goes in. Replaced it with a team assosiated 26t. Seemed noisy still. And have now eaten thru 2 more spurs adjusting slipper and just trying to get it all to quiet down. I'm using the paper method to set mesh. And I dont know what it could be unless the top shaft is bent or the actual motor shaft is bent. Idk any ideas?

I would look at both your top shaft and motor shaft. I run the avid aluminum top shaft and slipper system and I have actually had one warp on me. Gear mesh could also be the ticket..I actually never use the paper trick. I do it by feel and sound.
