Default Motor space

Ok, I just got the SCTE 2.0 and noticed the motor mount with the motor only moves so far. I noticed that motor hits the plastic bumpers that run along the side of the chassie. I have already shaved the bumper down a bit to get the proper pinion / spur alignment. Is this a common problem, what should i do?

Thanks

Paul

Sounds like the common mistake and the side plates are on backwards or your motor has extra mass and your going to have to grind down but i have the Hobbywing 4000kv motor and the fins add pry 1/4 of a inch and i didnt have to trim much so if you have that kinda motor that could be the issue but i bet its the side plates are on backwards as i myself even did that and i knew how to do it as i read the manual and the assembly instructions Ryan posted....
"Side-Guards (F-1) – When installing the side-guards onto the chassis, at first glance, they look the same, however they are different. One side holds the battery in place and one side allows room for the motor. If you look along the inner edge of the guards, you will notice one has a high spot and the other is low the entire way. The one with the high spot is for holding the battery and is the left guard and the other lower one is the right guard."

Thanks for the servo help. I'll take the front end apart and retighten the servo saver (back off two turns) and use lock tight.

Cheers

Mines locked all the way down for maximum steering response. It's taken some hard hits and the servo still works fine.
