I'll get the electronic gear loaded up and throw on my spare Impreza body just to give it a try. I'm anxious to find out how it works on the carpet at my local track.
I've put mine together, loaded up the GTB and SS17.5 Novak and immediately stripped the included Futaba servo horn when I touched the wall in the hallway of the house on the initial basic test! It took a couple minutes to dawn on me, but the horn doesn't quite fit my Hitec 625. Those metal gears made the horn nice and smooth on the inside.
The real news: The kit only comes with 2 styles of servo horn, Futaba and Airtronics. The one I need for a Hitec servo does not come with the kit. If you purchase this kit, as a precaution, order the servo saver for the chassis to match the servo you will be installing. The kit doesn't have an integrated servo saver anyway. The arm length of the kit servo horn is longer than the Kimbrough saver and the E4 servo saver matches the included servo horn length. This is peace of mind anyway, so a no brainer. They should be in tomorrow or the day after. Not bad for shipping from California to Wisconsin. The gents at the LHS want to see it run, take it for a spin... keep it for a while, or longer. It made some eyes pop, even if it doesn't steer at the moment.
