You shouldn't have any problems getting that low with the 2.0 internal. I haven't tried it but you can get to about 3.75 with an 88 spur and 37 pinion. Should be low enough for just about anything.

I beleive the one way from the Yokomo BD will work, but you have to shim it differently as the bulkhead spacing isn't the same. If you do this, make sure while shimming that the pulley stays in line with where it was and that that it doesn't line up too much in the center of the car.

Ditto that...I'm going to pick up my servo this weekend and would like some feedback on what is working and fitting for others as well.

lets ask the team.....

Hey Brent, what swervo are you running? and did it take any grinding to get it in the car? What about you EA?

I have a futaba S9350 in my car....but the fit is REALLY tight...I am going to change servos because I am a little concerned that it is tweakn my chassis...

I was reading the manual after doing some building and noticed a whole list of servo's listed. Looks like the main purpose is to guide shim size and crank arm to use. Guess that doesn't really assure us a good fit. I really dont want to have to grind anything...especially since I'm going to buy a new servo...so I'm all ears on what fits best.

Got all shocks, diffs, steering crank, and turnbuckes together this eve...going well so far...

One thing I'm a bit disturbed about...why on gods green earth did they mix SAE and metric hardware in the same kit?? To put it nicely...that was a very silly decision IMO.

Hey Sean...do you know Geno at the Covington store?? I'm a good customer of his.
