thats exactly its purpose. i broke blades on every tap with the regular spool. since putting the slipper spool in no more broken blades and the spool stays locked and only slips when you hit a board

Weird thing is my friend who is running the shame chassis (itf) and same servo (S9551) has the servo mounted in the same way as me just his servo has a bigger gap between the bulkhead and the front of the servo... Weird cars...

Easy to drive and easy to setup though which as a plus.

I am having that issue with my ITF chassis. It looks like the chassis is getting tweaked when i put the servo in. I'm going to try some different mounts that i have lying around. If not i'll shave a little off just like you did.

They may have been tamale parts. I don't see them on their website anymore though. They didn't look like the integy ones. Diggity used to make 6 degree castor blocks. I don't know if they still do. My integy steering blocks and rear hubs were ok, but the front castor blocks s****d.

Yeah, I saw those from Diggit Deisgns. There like $19 with the Derlin spacers. They look nice, but I'm curious if they would work with the Integy Nuckles.

I tweaked my rear left bulkhead. Now the car is 1 degree off in the rear toe after I tried the straighten it. Is this a common problem? I guy I race with did the samething with his front bulkhead on his t2 009.

It happens. My buddy has bent over 4 rear baulkheads in his PHI. The only thing you can do is just buy another, or else it will lead to more problems.

Stupid question... but did you break the A-Arm aswell? Or did the A-Arm not give and you bent the bulkhead?

That must have been a pretty hard hit.

Just the bulkhead the a-arm didn't break and there is no other damage. I tried to straighten the bulkhead as best as possible. I checked it with a straight edge it was straight but on the set-up station it shows 1 degree off and the car pushes like hell now. I ordered one but they are kind of expenisive to have extra's in my box. That's why I asked if it was common.
