Tekins work perfectly with a booster or pack.
The 1s Orcca is also a great choice for 1s racing.1

That is completely normal. The diff balls are wider than the diff gear otherwise the diff gear would bet compressed by the diff rings and your did would not work.

It is not a problem at all. It is supposed to move like that... It will center itself when the pinion gear pushes it... This is not like a touring car spur gear...

and last question. Trying to settle my gearing for the car. What would be the recommended rollout using 10.5 motor? ESC is TrackStar GEN II. Running 1s blinky. Currently I have 100/26 gears. Track is carpet

EDIT. How to center out a low profile servo? I'm using reverse mount kit in my car. Please tell me that shoe goo'ing isn't the only way of mounting low profile servo...

I have never seen a centered low profile servo without it being glued; and that was only in the old style standard position.

I ran the Ginna body for the first time last night, not bad. One thing I did forget to do was to add a little caster for some mechanical grip. I did have a little bit of the rear skipping around at high speed mainly coming out of the sweeper on to the straight and then into the other sweeper.

Drilled additional hole to center out the saver as much as possible. But after a race which was a real headache, I ordered normal mini sized servo.

Another strange thing was braking using my new TrackStar One Cell II Gen esc. Brakes were maxed out (100), but I still couldn't feel the brakes at all. It feels like brake percentage would be ~20 %... Might sound stupid, but can gearing be involved in this braking stuff? I ran 100/26 gears.

Quite common to not have much in the way of brakes; but, it is not a touring car either. On spec tires, your car should fly through turns.

I sometimes have forward roll on my WGT; like I always did on my 1/12th scale pan cars.
With a good Orca or Hobbywing 1S ESC, I can achieve some braking; but, it is minor.

Never ran a 10.5 in my WGT cars; but, did used to run 13.5 boosted. So, it would equal the speed of most mod TCs down a long back straight...And kill them in the turns...

Only if the track dictated using drag brake to achieve fastest lap times or to be more drivable in traffic while racing. Would usually be one or two REALLY tight turns on a course to require such. But again, not much braking required because a properly setup WGT car on a good track rolls through the corners really well.

I do find that my new Trinity D4 13.5 motor with a 12.5mm rotor (from EA) has a lot of cogging action; so, I am expecting it to have more braking action than normal. Will probably be putting in some forward roll with this puppy.

Hi, I have an x10se. I use it both on carpet and on asphalt with 13.5t blinky, 2s shorty and sophia gt body.
My setup is basically the same for asphalt and carpet: box stock setup, but green center spring. Toe-out: 1°. Camber: 1.5°, the front tires wear flat. Caster: 1shim front, 2 shims rear. Enneti tires.

On carpet i use 35sh front and 30sh rear. Good grip, nice handling in the infield, quick at changing direction and good speed in the straight. The only problem is the U-turn at the end of the straight: it takes ages to complete it and it goes to wide. It's the only turn in the track where i would like more steering.

On asphalt i use 40sh front and 30sh rear. In this case the problem is that if i get on the gas too early (before finishing the turn, before having the car perfectly lined up) it will spin out. I tried harder front springs, softer rear springs and more camber, but without success.

Any advice?

Got my Goteck mini servo, but already faced a problem... servo's spline is 4.8mm diameter and it is too small for my servo saver. Servo has 25 teeth spline, but it is small enough to fit in to 23 teeth saver. Is there any adapters from 4.8mm to bigger? Or should I buy another servo? I'm budget tight, so I cannot afford these high end JR's, Futaba's and Hitec's
