agreed. But that extra bit of info just saved me some money. Thanks

Why not use the official associated horn? You can get a set of 4 for less than 3 quid, part number AS9180. I have a Futaba S9551 and the 'F' associated horn is perfect.

Standard associated arms are perfect for the job!

Not all servos fit the AE horns. I'm using a Spektrum servo which is JR horn and the AE 'J' horn doesn't fit it, so I've been using a modified heavy duty JR horn.

....Because I moved the servo as far to the middle as possible. I can move it out and the arm will be strait, but I don't want to. If I have to choose between angled arm(which affects nothing) and move the servo out, I choose angled arm.

Wouldn't hurt to have a little bit bigger bearings. They do take a beating in touring so a larger stronger setup would be a bonus.

Gearing will depend on multitude of things, including track size, motor/speed controll (and what version software it is if you have a tekin), and ambient temperature, so we will need a bit more info to give you an answer

I've been running 66t spur with 37t-41t pinions, and I haven't got the motor temp over 60 degrees C. I tried 63/37 once but the gears wouldn't even touch
