people are so sensitive lol - im a sarcastic person by nature. not to be taken seriously at all times. i know tone and intent is lost via text but by no means was a personal attack. it was just a funny coincidence that when i saw it happen I can visualize an animation of it - hence the homer meme.

dude it's double sided tape or gel tape for more cushion - no need for any special brands. the pros don't use any special servo tape - just use whatever. it's not rocket science use your noggin.

The red backed double sided tape they sell in automotive stores in the round plastic tub is the best I have used. The clear 3M type has more cushion, but just doesn't stick as much.

Either way, how clean you get the surfaces is everything. Use some denatured alcohol and scrub the heck out of the ESC and chassis pan where your going to mount it. That will make it last forever.

To add to what Josh said, I cut some pieces to fill in the milled out places in the chassis, double that up. Then completely cover bottom of ESC. Now when you put it down on the chassis there are no gaps under it. You can double it up on ESC to have two layers. Good cushion for the ESC. Seems like a good idea on some of the outdoor tracks with huge jumps.

Home depot has 3m Double sided tape. For SCT I fill put 2 layers on to help with the shock for the abuse we put these things through.

just hard to believe that double sided servo tape can hold all of these wires and take the abuse without coming off. Sorry I doubted y'all. Thanks.

Clean all surfaces well. I use some rubbing alcohol or a light bit of motor spray on a towel to get all the dirt and oils off the ESC and chassis and it should hold quite well. On this car the long wires are supported by the center diff if you mount ESC forward. If it is rear ESC wires are quite short.

All servo tapes are not created equal. Get some 3M outdoor mounting tape (grey with red wrapper), and it'll hold... no problem.

They are just shy of 58mm. They are the same front and rear on the 3.0 truck. They are very slightly larger diameter than 2.0 pins.

The 2.0 uses 58mm front and 59mm rear.

Default Rear suspension

I've raced my truck twice, once outdoors. Once yesterday indoors at a big race in NE Ohio.

Anyway... The rear suspension is sticky. For some reason something is binding up in the rear end its not as free as it needa to be.

Ive beveled the ends of the rear A arms and it's helped. But it's still not moving like it needs to.

I think its the sway bar, but not sure. Does anyone have any input on how to free this thing up?

Default ESC mounting

I use E6000 shoe goo type stuff. Its not glue. So its not permanent, and can be peeled off.

I order a 12"x12" sheet of 1/4" thick neoprene from. Ebay. I use E6000 and mount the ESC to the neoprene, and then again E6000 to the chassis. It won't go anywhere, trust me. Double sided tape doesn't work well enough for my preference. It always works loose.

The neoprene cushions the ESC and it won't break from hard hits.
