Thanks. We try super hard to get every package shipped out every day! Never a delay. Most leave within a few hours of being placed.

No 1/8 reference here. I'm comparing it to my other 1/10 servos. 1257 and 1258.

Are some of you guys running so much droop that the springs are loose when you pick up the car? Seems like that could cause all kinds of handling problems depending on what the spring catches on after kinda flopping around when the shock is fully extended.

Maybe I'm not understanding what you guys are describing?

Default RC 101.....PLEASE

I'm new to this and stumped.

Just built my kit.....brand new, drove it down driveway 3 feet and it barely moved. Pull trigger...motor spins....that spins center diff very fast......front and rear dog bones spin up......vehicle barely moves. Lift car up in air and pull trigger and the wheels pretty much balloon up.

I noticed if I lift either the front or the rear end....hand turn a wheel, the opposite wheel doesn't move at all.

Center diff has been out and reassembled, it's full of oil.

Any ideas please? Thank you!

Do all 4 wheels turn the same direction if you give it throttle off the ground?
