I use an Xray servo saver on my A700L but I am sure it should also work on the Evo.

Edit: I just noticed u wanted an aluminum servo horn. At one point I used a Tamiya servo horn temporarily after the plastic horn got stripped. I am sure any aluminum horn will work as long as its long enough to give the proper turning radius.

If anyone finds one, I'd like to know as well. I have only tried the Yokomo and ProTek, and that did not work at all. I'm currently sticking with the stock plastic unit since it has absolute perfect dimensions to get over the drive shaft while staying under the AM46. The distance from the servo is perfect as well keeping your steering link nice and straight to the rack. Unless you find one that has the exact dimensions as the stock unit, I probably wouldn't recommend it.

Any word on the new o-rings? I have one damper that insists on leaking, and I've run out of things to try.

I'm going to upgrade my shocks to 2.1's. If I purchase the parts separately, do they come as single pieces or in a set? Mainly the AT41-1 and AT40-1? As if they're single, it would be cheaper to buy a whole damper.

Thanks,
Iain

Default Question about adjusting downstop

I've been trying to figure this out for a while now but I'm still a bit confused. When I read a setup sheet and it says 2mm over ride height, how exactly do I measure this? Do I put the car down on a flat surface and adjust the screw until the distance from the end of the suspension arm and the surface is 2mm when measured with a ruler or ride height gauge?

I tried doing this on my car using the above method but I get a lot of droop. Is this normal or am I doing something wrong?

Droop over ride height. Set the car to the specified ride height. Lift chassis until arms hit droop screws (tires ahould stay on the board). Measure chassis height again. The difference is the droop over ride height.

I prefer this way since it eliminates the influence of all other chassis settings on the droop reading

Thanks, that really helped a lot to clear up the confusion I had to measuring droop over height.

I recently bought a used 700L from a fellow a fellow racer. I went through the car and had to replace a few parts nothing major and got to practice and race with it for the first time last night. Pretty amazing car, I now know what the hype is all about. I kept making changes and learning more about the car all night from fellow Awesomatix owners. Can't wait for more.

Hanulec: The Jackson RC setups work well as a baseline on my track in 17.5, Looking for evo2c setup from you there, I assume you don't have one?

Thank you

Evo2 vs evo2c setups will be close. I just scraped around my alloy chassis this summer.
I'd really make sure to have a top deck ... And then work on different spline (am33/am30) adjustments for flex.

Finally found one that works nearly perfectly from Integy. Their 18mm machined alloy horn has the perfect amount of throw and clears everything using the existing shims and ball cups I used with the stock plastic horn. They have other colors too, just make sure you get the same 18mm model.

Important note: The only thing I had to do was shim it out 1mm away from the servo to keep the steering rod perfectly straight and to keep the horn from binding on the housing of the Awesomatix servo. A SH10 works if you file down the diameter a bit to fit inside the splined collar of the horn.

Thanks Wes, I bought that one with a plan to use it but it bound against the case on my 9550. Might try the shim inside filed down.
