I used that chart and looks to be a 75.xx mm rollout. Seems kind of high to me. Most rollouts I see seem to be in the 50-60 mm rollout. Not sure if I should start off with a lower pinion then check temps etc.

It's rare for me to run anything other than zero (0).

Depends on how much steering you want on your track.. -1 is a good starting point. If you have to much steering take some out.

Default OPinions on this servo for the car..

I just grabbed one of these up (LE), pretty stoked to have it on a track before long. Only thing is, I don't have a "proper" servo available, short of raiding my 12th (don't want to). I do have a Savox digit 4096/ sc-1251 MG that is not being used, better it for a touring car I know, but for now I was thinking of laying it flat (tape or shoe-goo)... It will lay more to one side after being centered, and the links will still have some angle to them. Will run on smooth indoor asphalt and carpet. Any reason this should not work? I can balance the chassis out with weight if needed. Just trying to get something together to run untill I can buy another servo. I added a pic...

Also, for the surfaces I described, what battery position has worked best? I was thinking the middle position would be good to start. Thanks for the help.

I sold off my more expensive TC servos to get most of the funds for my pan car servos...

A good TC servo should get you most of the way to a Futaba S9650 mini digital servo for about $60.

Thanks and God Bless
1/12th scale front kingpins, .50 front springs
.410 kingpin length
red center spring
white side springs 1 turn preload
10k in tubes
Reverse servo front plate mid track width
4.5mm rear ride height
4.25mm front ride height

This is pretty much what I run everywhere

Jsaves a very important part of setup is tire size. If you use this setup im sure dumper is running small tires. If you have too much steering keep cutting them down and adjusting ride height until you get around good.

It will work fine.....

My best friend ran a KO Propo lo-pro TC servo in his. Just shoe-goo it in, and let her rip!

After a couple months of running boosted WGT on Nor-Cal carpet, we recently converted over to non-boosted to practice for our upcoming ROAR Regionals at TQ Hobbies in SoCal. As of tonight, I already have my car to within 2/10ths of my boosted lap times and the car is so easy to drive...fast!
