Be sure he has the proper horn for the brand servo being used...sometimes if you grab the wrong one it will feel like it fits but not work right.

Yeah!!!!! What he posted!!!! LOL

Also, with this PRS adapter you can run several other brands of spurs as well. I know the PRS spurs are a bit pricey but I promise you get what you pay for! Their pinions and spurs are of the charts cool! Good luck Gabe!!! I hope you dialing in the Type-R setup for all of the hommies that come to the Nats!!!!

So I am thinking that this is a large track and I'm sure you have to gear up for it. What ratio would you be running if you were using a CO or Monster stock motor? The reason I'm asking is that I think our club is getting ready to start running brushless and I want to get a handle on gearing if we do. Thanks.

Yeti 35,, I started today with T Hodge's Ripon setup that I found earlier in the thread, It has hi frt dif, low arms, Low rear dif,low arms. car was tight in, loose off. By cleaning off the left front corner of EA3 with the pipe, I had the opportunity to expirement. I went to hi frt arms, hi frt diff, short arms. this helped the tight in a lot, still was loose off. I left the rear diff low and raised the arm mounts and it stabilized the exit dramatically, I could get to full throttle much sooner. I race on a blown off parking lot, no treatment, about 425', 13,5 BL rubber tires. Just a note, I cracked a jr link in my shunt with the pipe and put some quick fix standard frt camber links on it and made an improvement to the turn in. Got sideswiped on the first lap of the A main and took off the right rear EA3. End of day for me. Hope you can make sense of this , it's late.

Race report from this weekend was pretty good. Ran Todd's nats set up again and it was good at the begining of the day. As the bite came up the car got a little lazy in the switch back sections. After standing up the front shocks all the way I was able to carry my speed through the switch backs. We put in the exact Reedy race layout at Norcal hobbies so that we could work on our lines. The only problem I ran into was the corner dots that will not be at the Tamiya track I am now the owner of three broken left front arms. If it weren't for the breaking I had a very good car for the main. Got to battle with a buddy (Rob pull the trigger next time ) The set up wasn't quite there to battle with the big boys at our track yet but I liked the progress that was made this weekend. I have a new trick up my sleeve for next weekend. If I don't break I'll get alot more done. The car is great to work on and other than it weighing a ton (after balancing it out side to side due to the GTB) this car is nice. Thanks to Todd for getting my parts in time for this weekend's race. Stay tuned for next weeks report.......

REEDY....I'M COMING FOR YA!!!!!!
