its your Savox servo. A glitch buster is necessary but may not entirely fix your problem. The BEC in the MMP may not be strong enough.

Switch to a Hitec Servo and you'll be fine. Try the glitch buster first, hopefully that fixes it.

Shock position front is inside top inside bottom. Rear is mid top inside bottom.
It's seems to have too much body roll. Any suggestions are appreciated.
Front shocks, move bottom out. What's your camber link setup on the rear?

Would switching to a rx8 esc and keeping the savox be any better?

i'm purchasing brand new front/rear driveshaft cvs and axles. There is zero binding that i can find.
What I have figured out is that after running the new bump steer mod and having my EPA at max throw,I gave it more throw to touch at some point, even more.What happens then is the bone will rub on the stub axel back bowl area and start to cut the bone.Truck has so much steering but it is the culprit I feel.

Yea, a gen2 RX8 should work better.

MMP BEC's are kind of weak.

Personally I dislike Savox servo's they've caused me brownouts more than I care to share, even costing me a race on the last friggin last lap.

The bottom was in the middle I moved them in, it seemed to help but same problem still. My camber link setup on the rear is top hole on tower outer on hub.

hi guys not sure if this the right thread or not ill ask anyway

my 2.0 is running the hobbywing exrun system with the 120a esc and the 4000kv motor.
what is happening is whenthe battery is fully charged 8.1V its runs perfect but when the volts drop to 7.9V it begins to estitate and the motor makes a weird humming sound. when this is happeing it wont allow you to apply anymore than about 1/4 throttle if you do try to it shuts power of to the motor until you release the throttle and go again.

has anyone eles running the same electrics had this or heard of theis happening at all.
this is my first elec kit and im stumped.
a guy at the track said to put a capicitor in the receiver so i gought a novak one from amain and it is still doing it.

any help will be appreciated greatly

Sounds like you might be bumping up against the low voltage cut off. What type of battery are you using? How long are you running the thing? These things will suck a 5000mAh battery dry pretty dang quick so you are better off going after a decent quality pack of 6000mAh or better.

Try turning your lvc in the hw program box down between 2.8-3.0 . This should help.

Wow so sorry to hear about your house. 4wd SC is a lot of fun. More traction faster speeds. The SCTE 2.0 is an amazing car.
