Im a huge fan of the 9550 for conventional cars but if you can have more speed and power without sacrificing why not. I am running a JR 8800 servo right now. Its a little heavier than the 9550, which is good becasue a little more foreward weight in the car seems to help. Also its .03 faster and more powerful than the 9550.

And who makes the adopter for type R?
If you're using a Novak, look into the new 13mm sintered rotor. It's supposed to make gearing the 3.5 motors a lot more reasonable.

I had a damaged plug on this PT that left the leads short, so it seemed like a good opportunity to test it. It definitely makes for a cleaner wiring layout. I'm not sure I'd do it at a big race though, just in case. :-)

Larry, aren't you tempted to try the latest and greatest, the 9000S?

I had a break through day today with my Type R. I was doing a lot of IMing with Schreff and I finally got my car sorted out. Jason gave me a setup to try but it turned out mainly to be a bad servo steering setup on my part when I put the car together originally. I was telling Jason how it reacted and he was telling me to try a few things when the light bulb went off in my head. I am not going into details since it was not the cars fault but the idiot that put it together, that be me. All I can say now is that I am fully enjoying this car for once. This car rocks and I can't wait to run the foam car in LV this year for now that I know how it works on asphalt, I really want to see how on rails it is for carpet, in my hands of course. Thanks again Schreff and I am sure you will be a great help at IIC this year also.

I'm pretty sure I did the same thing. We can join the dee dee dee gang. The car will be a lot better now and much easier to control.

If two people have done it, maybe you guys could share to make sure others haven't had the same issue?

For me is was just not getting the servo centered right and actually using the link between the horn and steering rack as an adjustment also. It basically turned better one way then the other. The old car you could not use the link as an adjustment because it was solid. I plan on changing that later this week so I can get that car right as well. So with the servo really not being on center I was messing with EPA's to get it closer and it was just basically jacked up. I kept blaming the setups for the rear of the car not hooking up when all along it was just too much steering one way and not the other. I believe I also had a gear going bad as well in my servo for it did go out in my second qualifier so I had my wife run home and get my other Type R and took the servo out of it. It was even smoother with a fully functioning servo too. So I just now need to get the replacement plastic gear and my previous servo will be all good again. As I said, it was not a fault of the car but of the idiot that put it together.

Ah, that's understandable. I guess mine is fairly straight, though I think I used steering rods to get it that way rather than the adjustment between the servo and steering rack. The wheels can both turn until they hit the shocks, so presumably it's close enough to be even?

Glad to help.

The carpet setup development has been going extremely well. The setup will cost you.

How many of you are going to IIC this year? I imagine Schreff, Jason E, and Larry at least, right? Anybody else? I gotta know who to root for other than our lone brave local while I'm talking trash in the chat room.

all this servo talk has me thinking... i develped a "crunchy" spot in my servo (guess that servo saver was a bit tight), so i just rotate the horn one tooth and adjusted the turnbuckle to compensate. since then it seems like i'm always fiddling with the center point on the radio.

time to order new gears for my race servo and my spare and re-do the steering per the book.
