What battery(over 5K mAh?) are you using pakk and how close to the belt is it in order to balance left/right?

What is the minimum weight in your area? Do you have to add a bunch of weight to make minimum weight? Min. weight where I am ranges from 1400-1450g, so I don't think it would make sense for me to flip the servo, but I was considering it on my new kit that is being shipped right now. Hopefully here they will soon follow European rules and drop it to 1350.

Sorry for all the questions

Thanks

I run a protek 5600 50c. If you can see that I have spacers on the battery tray, I run my pack all the way against that and it balances well. I think the lowest I have been able to balance my car is 1320.

Default Servo install

I have also installed the servo inwards to the belts on both my Photons. I am using the LPF orion(Savox). Not sure about Pak but I had to trim the upper mount ear off the servo to stop the steering linkage from clashing.

I dont think your steering link isnt semetrical L/R. And ur angle seems to be off on ur saver to turnbuckle angle . It needs to be a 90' between the saver screw,and each end of the turnbuckle

That's shoo goo'd in right, doesn't look like the tabs are even on anymore. I was wondering if the servo would fit that way, but the tabs were definitely in the way

mess with ur circles L/R at max throw. And the speed thruout the sweep of the tire. It would be like adding or takin away expo on the servo. Depending on the angle between the bellcrank pivot/ and each end of the turnbuckle. It needs to be a mirror immage between left and right. Using a angle finder for math works great to figure that out if u want to get it perfect or just take 2 pics one to the left and the other to the right and photo shop them over each other to see the difference. The little details make a big difference more than some realize

I use 3m double side'd tape. It's been on there for 8months and has not moved. And yeah, I cut the tabs off. I also had to trim the case a bit because the bell crank was hitting it. The servo is right up against the belt, but not close enough to touch.

T.O.P. made a running change to the top deck to accomodate battery packs with integral bullet connecters. Both of the decks in the pic are part # TC-PCHC004. The newer version is what is included in the Ltd. Edition kits

TF Racing have launched their fully universal carbon fibre battery tray. Made in 3mm carbon fibre they help hold batteries in place during an impact where tape would sometimes break. Light and universal it fits most touring car chassis’ and has adjustable positioning for fine tuning your chassis balance. Mounted on 2 rubber o-rings to avoid tweak, it can accept LiPo batteries up to 138mm x 47mm. larger sizes to follow

I've had both on the same car and couldn't tell the difference. The clearance is nice even with a thunderpower battery though.
