I would recommend the 5 holes pistons if your track had a lot of jumps. the 8 hole stock one don't give enough pack

Most of the local guys are suggesting stock silver springs and 5 hole. My biggest problem with the 15mm was to get the front to not slap the chassis on a jump was to make it so springy the car would not drive well. So I just dealt with a little slap. I am hoping I can fix this with the 16mm. I'm didn't realize they took the same springs until yesterday. I almost ordered some new springs and I already have a lot of springs already.

It's gonna be really interesting to see how the universals hold up to electric power source.

forgive me for not searching but does the shock towers, rear stand ups, and under drive option gears interchange from the 7r to the 7r eco? as in someone has done it compared to just searching part numbers?

Default Camber Adjustment

Hi Guys, I was wondering why I have such a big space in the arm when I set my camber to -2 deg? I have looked at other setups and I don't see the same gap.
What am I missing?

That's about right for -2 camber stock setting is about -4.5 screwed all the way in....also two top washers will give you -2.

1) Hobbywing Xerun XR8, Tekin 1900 or TORO X8S 2150

What the difference of the tekin and the Toro ? not mean the company

2) Tekin Gen 2 ESC and Tekin 1900


3) battery 4 s or 2 x 2s

Thanks
1) HobbyWing works just as fine, but Tekin 1900kv is an excellent motor.
2) Tekin is good, but so is also HW
3) 4S battery is less hassle
my 2c...

Having a weird issue with my steering and want to see what people think. I'm running the sidewinder system so was running with the esc bec before which is 5.5v. Steering was pretty weak and slow with my hitech 7954sh.

Last night I wired up a castle 10a bec to it set at 7.4v and now the speed of the servo is much better, however it's getting much more torque turning left (pushing the linkage) than turning right (pulling the linkage).

When pushing the linkage if I hold the wheel straight the servo will completely overpower the servo saver and rotate the top half about 30 degrees. However when pulling the linkage if I hold the wheel straight it will not overpower the servo saver at all, maybe a couple degrees.

Anybody else experience this? Seems to me that I should have the same steering torque in both directions. Haven't swapped out the servo yet to check my spare.
