Yeah because drake is running the battery and esc reverse of stock. It almost looks like the body is wider like they are using a wider chassis similiar to the new wider chassis nitro car.

what's with the TLR drivers and the yellow bodies. Is that some kind of official thing? Every TLR driver I've seen runs a bright yellow body here and there.

I definitely don't want this rumor going anywhere, lol. Adam runs a stock chassis and side dam setup. What they are testing on the nitro may indeed someday come to electric but even that is just testing different things to see how it works. The body Adam is running fits on a stock 8e.

Adam's outdoor settings is a good start. You might want to go a little heavier in the shocks and I like to lay the rear shocks over a notch.

Questions??

**STEERING ISSUE**


I am having steering issues going full lock. I just picked up my 3.0 second hand and while I was going through it yesterday I notice it turns more to the right than the left. When steering full left the steering link off the servo horn hits the ackerman arm under the front chassis brace.

I picked up my 2.0 and noticed the same thing, but I was atleast getting full lock steering both ways whereas on the 3.0 it is severly limiting the amount of left steering I get. I went through the manual and rebuilt most of the front steering and checked the steering link length and adjusted - still the same problem.

What am I missing?

After a few races days I have noticed that my rear sway bar is no longer working properly. There appears to be a lot of slop in the posts the bar is attached to. The bar itself is flat and true, but there is no reaction when I depress one side or another. The posts move forward and back preventing the force from lifting the other tire. Are these wear items? Is there a way to buy the posts without purchasing the entire sway bar kit?

Front still works good.

The ball bearing ackerman plate bows out more and therefore should not interfere. If it does, something may be put together incorrectly.

Questions??

Is anyone running the tekno clutch system (TKR4301X) or any feedback on it? It seems to offer better benefits compared to pinion gears.

Questions??

What is the Orange plate used to mount the switch on the esc, does anyone know the part or is this custom?
