Hey Randy,

I know this is off topic, but how are those Orion Servos?

I hope i made the right move.
I filed some relief from the front and back of the upper deck. Given its virgin form, it was causing some tweak in the chassis when installed on a surface plate.

They have been good so far for me, I'm using the 1409's in my sedans and so far they have all centered perfectly and have plenty of speed/torque.

KO is not the manufacturer

Do you think expanding its stock team in the US would help Tamiya's presence in the market? It seems like picking up some stock drivers across the midwest and east coast might help with more grassroots interest. I know there's sort of a negative stigma about sponsoring people that race stock, but it seems to have worked out pretty well for the likes of Corally and XRay.

Just finished up my kit.

The LiPo fit is going to be close, but I've got it figured out in my head, going to order some TQ Racing 13 gauge wire tonight, supposed to be very thin but shouldn't have any problems handling a 3.5-4.5 motor.

My transponders should arrive this week as well, so I'll mount one of those in and get a pic of the wiring when it's all completed.

Pics were taken with my cell phone, so they kinda suck.

Do you mean drivers in the 50-65% range, or traveling factory drivers?

My wiring is such hack, cannot come close to Randy or the like... But I bet my diff covers are unique.. And is it sacrilege to have spring steel turnbuckles ?

I've had issues with the low profile servos not centering as well as the standard ones, so now that the receivers and ESC's are getting so small it's no problem to fit a full size servo and still have a ton of room between the ESC and motor.
