my car ran fine AGAIN this weekend
2 questions: Are you guys using a tiny bit of loctite on screws that go through arm mounts
also
never had this happen 'til this weekend; my front spring perches come off of shock ends (like there is not enough tension holding or pushing down from the springs to keep it in place)
anybody ran into this? might just glue them BUT I think that is unnecessary

I first noticed it when turning the wheels by hand, but then disconnected the servo arm to rule out binding in the steering. I don't remember it being so tight when I bought it new. I send an email out to Savox as well, but thought I might get a quicker response here.
I run the same 2274 and it feels the same way. Does not seem to be an issue, just the way it feels. If you are used to the servos on 1/8 scale, then part of it is the different geometry of the 1/10 scale. Not as much leverage to the servo horn.

You can loctite the front screws as they thread into alum.
I only had a cup come off a cpl times but its good now. I bend about the last 1/4 inch of the spring coil inward to where it fits the cup tight. Sometimes I have to orientate it so the end of the spring falls into the cup on the slot if I over bend it. I also did this on my rb5 long ago.

Default Schelle Chassis

I am lookng for some first hand feedback on the Schelle chassis. was wondering if it would help outdoors in med to med/low dirt tracks. any feedback even on indoor tracks would be helpful. thanks

A little bend and the spring should snap onto the cup or be a tight push fit. A pair of good needle nose pliers is all it takes.

Randy, I have the schelle chassis installed at the moment and buggy drives much better outdoors on a med bit track. I am running the buggy this weekend on a high bit track. will update at some point next week

is this to keep the spring on the cup or the cup on the shock end? My son and I constantly are popping the spring cups completely off the car, no lie, every race night or practice day, we are out there looking for a spring cup at least once each. Matter of fact Saturday, ran almost the entire main missing a front spring cup. I even have tried a little super glue to keep it in place and still have lost them.

I put on the Exotek spring cups early on and have not had any issues with them coming off. They fit very tight.

I think you will find it helps a lot. If your are going to bump something enough to pop the cup of the eyelet, it won't fall of the spring. It has a better chance of finding its way back on the eyelet too.

the cup on the shock end!
To keep the spring perch on the rod end! I ran a q and a Main with both front spring perches off! I was gonna super glue but shouldn't have to
I'll post pics tonight
for my ride height, springs aren't that tight or under compression! Yes springs are broken in! I use the HB Gold front and Yellow rear springs
If I remember correctly my ride height is 20mm F and R

[QUOTE=snwchris;13894168]I believe that mainly from the shorter chassis. The Schelle chassis was made to help eliminate that and from what I've seen at our track and tried out a couple of the 413s with the Schelle chassis you can definitely be a little harder on it in the corners and sweepers.

I run 2015 reedy..ierc track.im using black rear sway instead of ty's copper and front hubs 1mm spacer top and bottom because I don't understand the effect of raising and lower front hubs yet.spring are stock but do have red fronts and gold rears..
