Just a quick question for people using the Hot Racing aluminum axle cups... were yours threaded? I got a set recently with no threads at all in them. I figure I'll just run a tap through them, but it seemed odd so I wanted to check.

mine were all threaded and perfect alternative to the stock plastic one - a well worth the money investment

Ok, sounds like mine were screwed up then (both packages were missing the threads). I'll just run a tap through them. Thanks.

When steering is straight, Check to see that your servo arm is centred and adjust the steering turn buckle accordingly. Also make sure the turn buckles that go to the steering knuckles are evenly adjusted.

Last, make sure your servo is centred when you are checking this.

If all these factors are set up, you should have equal steering on both sides. If you still down, then you may have an issue with your servo.

i got it to go full lock left and right...it was missing that little plastic plate that goes inder the plate that the upper arms attach to...but those two vertical screws that connect the upper and lower arms start to cause it to bind so i took them off for now..maybe i had them too tight ?

Thanks for all your hard work Mike, I'm sure this product will be as great as the rest of the Exotek products.
I was running the Exotek chassis and your set up last season and did real well..........Our track here has decided to go all off road so I'll be turning my CR into a drift machine...............oh well, they still are allot of fun.................

You don't need to order from HPI and pay full retail plus high shipping. Try one of these sites

Any time and thanks for your support!

Drift actually looks like fun and the body and rim choices for mini are perfect looking for drift
