I've already replaced all the gears in my servo. I run the s9550. You would think it's the 1 plastic gear that strips. But actually sometimes its the brass gears. That costs $40 for the kit. I have plenty of plastic gear spares though. Also I've learned that if the crash is hard enough to strip the servo gears, it's hard enough to bend the steering linkage arms. I dreaded that with my EvoIV. I don't know how many times I've had to replace the steering linkage arms in that thing from running no servo saver. I do however only run a servo horn if the track has curbs or corner dots for corners.
Ah, fair enough Trying to make it not sound like teaching you to suck eggs

Thankfully most the tracks I run are fire hose filled with sand, or Road-Rail.... tomorrow's practise could be interesting though, with solid PVC pipe :s

Cheers

Anyways, bring the ray out next weekend to Fayetteville. I wanna see what it's got.

Does Todd read this?? A few days ago I emailed him 2 times but the emails bounced back. I don't know if he got my replies or not. I sent him a reply through RCTech. So I dunno if he got my response on the toe blocks. He needs to check his email address he has listed.
No it was not the new tires.....They were Jaco's need I say more....The side wall Broke loose again that is why I had to slow down so much....after being attacked on the track by a carvan of mad racers. Not to mention your part.

You have seen what the RAY08 can do(I cannot believe you are not sold yet)....If you are looking to size it up with the TRF416; don't, they are night and day.....just buy one you will be very happy. To be honest a stock motor just seem boring to drive in the RAY08, a 13.5 feels like a silver can.

I AM DONE WITH FAYETTEVILLE until you can bring out more team racers or Laurie, George and Justin......

Todd does read this but I will text him so you two can play tag.

G12314: How many people were racing the TRF416....I heard there was a fast crowd in the A main, yet the B main time weren't that far off in GT1.

And what Body did the winner in the A main have.

I will try to make it to the Memphis race if I cannot make the race in California. I will be the racers with An ARMY OF ONE Bodies.

Good luck on you TCS tour.

Bring the ray. I wanna see if you can pick up the lap you were off in the qualifiers. I really wanna see you do good. Just stick with 1 car and you'll be better off. Stop being a car whore!! Anyways as I have said, I'm done with new cars (touring). I'm sticking it out with this one. Especially since I'm heading to the Roar Nats in June. Switching cars every round isn't gonna help anything.

I talked to Anthony today. He may show up from time to time at Fayetteville. I will let you know when he does so you can head out there. Not sure about Justin. He needs a ride to get there. George? Hmmmm I dunno.

Hey Terrell, if you are goin to the Memphis TCS let me know. If my work schedule continues as is... I'll be off that weekend. Plus I'm off work on the Laurel TCS as well. Not sure if I wanna race GT1 again, or borrow my TA05 back from Laurie and race GT2. I really wanna do GT2 because that's where all the competition seems to be with the much larger class.

Ofcourse GT2 is where the competition is...that why I did not sale my TA05r.
But I am still racing GT1........
As far as lap times or lap down, my Main beat your TQ check the paper work.....and that with the carnage. The Ray08 is faster(easier to drive) out of the box than my TRF416....but I am a TCS racer that why I keep some my Tamiya cars.

No, your main did not beat my TQ. My TQ was 17 laps, your main was 17 laps because your first lap was less than 1 second. So it counted that as a lap. So technically, you only did 16 laps.

I have problems with my rear diffs that it gets loose very quickly every time I tighten it/set it to my liking. Has anyone had the same experience? How do you fix this?

Also I understand you are suppose to be able to tighten the rear diff without having to take anything apart but I don't know how to poke my screw driver through diff hole when the spring is there. What am I missing?

Help ....

You built your diff wrong. The spring should be on the diff nut side. Rebuild it correctly and that should solve both your problems.
