Sorex dishes are terrible I think thats because they are made up with very hard compound under stress they can't flex but breakes

only speaking for myself, i've broken more much more sweep rims in the past two weeks then i have in the past year using sorex and rp premounts. how they work on carpet i don't know. but there will be plenty around after nats to fine out.

Hey guys - had a servo question

I was racing my mi3 the other night and after i bumped into something the servo was of to the left - I pulled it off re centered and it was ok for the next race. By the end of the main though it kept going to the left no matter how many times i recentered it.

So i took it home and put a new hitec servo in it and its still doing the same thing -
I install and center the servo and after i turn it a few times it gets off skew to the left

Is there something that could have happened in the chasis that would cause this, or did i just get unlucky and ahave two hitec servoes (both digital ultra speed (138oz/in)) with the same problem

Could it be that the impact has ruined the 'spline' effect on the inside of the servo horn?
Or are you using a servo saver

After 2 rounds of qualifiers at the nats, 2 MI3's in top ten. TQ and 9th. Mark Burt is TQ and Dave Duncan is 9th.

Several others are close, 11th and 12th.

Thumbs up keep it up!

the mains are lined up for the 08 roar nats!

http://liverc.rccars.com/view_result...ns_Listing.xml

congrats to mark burt for some solid qualifying performances, placing his mi3 in the show for both stock and super-stock. and to tim kowal who gets to pilot his mi3 from the 5-spot in masters tomorrow. with triple-a mains, it's far from over.

awesome job, guys. lay it down tomorrow.
