If there is a ver.1.1 sticker pasted on your box, then you will know you have the updated gears.

I've broken about three of the original oneway gears, but I have gone several races without any problems to the original gear. It's just a part of racing to break parts. HPI can't engineer indestructibility into the car. Anything will break when going into pipes. Work on your driving and you won't have to work on the car.

the nut under my steering plate that holds the left toe link ball studs keeps on scratching the "F/R" toe pivot blocks on the front end.

the f/r block was pressed forward evenly with two fingers while being tightened, and the steering wipers were new parts so what gives?

the left side of the plate seems to swing closer than the other(on max. point) as the right side nut doesnt get half as close when its at its closes pt to the block.

thanks guys


heres an attchmnt.

What is most likely to have happened is that you have bent the F/R toe block somehow, which is causing it to catch on the steering. Mine also slightly does this on the opposite side, it must be when you take some hard hits it just bends it back slightly.

Yeah most likely the f/r toe block is bent like skill said. You could take it out and put it flat on your tweak board or what ever and see if it sits flat or compare to the other block. hope that helps.

Another Ackerman question. I was looking at set up sheets from HPI, there is a field to add a spacer in-between the servo saver arm and the carbon fiber Ackerman plate. So what affect would this have? If I put a 1mm washer in between the arm and plate will this add steering or decrease it? Thank for all your help.
Snowy.
