Sweet. Are the fans really necessary?

Also what servo are you running and did you have to make any adjustments to it to keep the bellcrank from hitting the servo?

Thanks.
The fans are sold by BOSS RC Motorsports and drop the temp about 30-40 degrees. The stock car (white belts) has a KO 2413 servo, the mod car (black belts) has a Futaba BLS551. No mods were done to either servo except shims for the KO servo.

Both are Parma bumpers for the TC4. I had to elongate the body post holes a little and cut a little slot for the standoffs. The mod car had a little more dremel work for fun. Just cut this one tonight for a friend.

Hey Tony, how are you finding the low friction belts?
Is there any advantage/perfomance gain over the standard belts?
And how do they fare?- wear rate etc

Try the standard setup mentioned in the manual.
Move your top point of the rear shocks one hole further inside and work your way from there.
I did it at our track and took 5 tenth of my previous best time off.
The car handles great just out of the box.
At least it did for me

cheers Roy

I can't say that there is a substantial difference in the belts. They are softer, but I didn't see a drastic change in lap times. Every little bit helps though.
