hey bubonic.. no my car isn't twitchy.. its perfectly dialed... what I was saying is instead of saying never use an adjustment , maybe try it .. granted it wont be right for every track but if your running on a really loose track where everyone is searching for traction the a speed adjustment on servo is good. if your running on good traction you don't need to worry about it..

same with epa.. you use them as just another tuning option. anything to give you an advantage helps.. that's why the companies put those things into the radios.

hope that helps.

I am sure. new motor plate too from the pics. The AE alloy brace is crap. But in either car, the plastic one is fine. The bumper offers not protection so the brace will look like crap in a week or 2.

Why did you say it was twitchy? Nope I make changes to my setup As everybody else said they dont change the servo speed they make other changes doesnt make any sense to me to slow down the speed of the servo.
That really doesnt help... Do what you want But Im not

hey bubonic.. no I said if your driving on a really loose track and you are using a really fast servo it can make your car twitchy... or at least that's what I meant..

I also said that if your on a high traction track you don't need to worry about it.. I also said it works better on some cars more then others.

with the traction you have in az you don't need to worry about it.. if your running on a really loose dirt track that's kinda dry and you have super fast steering chances are good you will spin out nomatter what 2wd your driving. if you slow down the steering it makes it easier to control the corners. and I said its used as just another tuning option.

no worries though.. you guys have some sweet tracks down there. and the days of really loose tracks seem to be fading away more and more. now I am hearing rumors a couple places want to do carpet outdoor offroad tracks so they don't have to water or worry about the dust. we may all be running on tracks like in Europe next..lol

So everyone leaves the sever at 100% speed on the controller and just adjusts the EXP or EPA on the controller to help tune out twitch?

First, I use EPA to stop the servo from over traveling and make sure left and right turn in equally.

I then use dual rate right on the transmitter handle. It is an on-the-fly-adjustment with your thumb.

On a big sweeping track, you might turn it down to 80% ,this way you don't over steer the car. On a tight track, you may want more travel so you set it higher.

Yep, servo at 100% - set EPA to set the hard travel end points (dont allow servo to push further than it physically can or needs to go), and like others have said can use dual rate to take equal throw out of the steering range on the fly if needed.

Expo for steering has always just felt weird to me. Steering is something that feels best when is linear with the turning of the radio wheel (or stick if you are that guy). I think it can make useful for throttle feel if you are into that sort of thing.

Chances are your car itself is just twitchy (tires, general setup,etc) and/or you just need to get used to it more. Even with the fastest of servos, the actual travel should be linear to the turning of the wheel.
