took that off but it didnt solve the problem as it just increased the ride height of the front. I have found some spacers just waiting for them to delivered to fit them! That should hopefully sort it. Will post a blog update before the weekend hopefully with a fully sorted car even though it was fantastic last time out!!

What motors are you guys running? I'm just getting into onroad and will be running in spec 13.5 class. I'm using a Tekin RS because I had a backup for my offroad vehicles. Are the Tekin motors good for racing or is there better motors out there?

Default spacers under balls

a quick solution is to put a 2mm spacer under ball joints. ive left risers on , because if you remove them ride height increases.

I did the servo conversion this past weekend.
I have the risers as well, but the 1/12 servo saver and my links are dead flat.

how many followers do you have? last season we were running 1s 10.5 boosted and it was alot of fun but on we were lacking new enthusiasts. my home track is a bit smaller than yours but from 10.5 to 13.5 it was only lacking a few 10ths... nothing to significant....

at first i was against running 13.5 blinky.... too slow!! but now running 13.5 blinky makes the class more challenging and levels out the playing field to who is a better/consistent driver with the correct set up and corner speed!!!!! and not just relying on top end speed. (and living in the NW we have some of the fastest drivers to practice against)

this year the WGT class has doubled and is the most popular class at my track.... and its still growing!

good job roar

I ended up going with th X10 LE to get my feet wet in the onroad scene. I'm putting a Tekin RS/13.5 in it since thats the class I will be running in. Can you fit a standard size servo in these or do I need a low profile servo? Also any tips on must have upgrade or anything in general is much appreciated.

Not lowpro but mini servo. The 2 most popular seem to be jr 3560 or futaba 9650. Futaba is cheaper but works just as good.
