Rcmushroom and Rcmarket doesn't sell S100 anymore, has this kit been discontinued?

I ran an S100LT for the first time this past weekend. Not much info out there on the car, but after an evening of practice, 3 rounds of qualifying, and 3 mains, I finally had the car working well.

I just got one brand new in the box and i am using a savox servo and can not get the servo to sit center to the front brace and also my kit didn't have the holes for the links on the inner bracket.

Savox wont center in any car I know of, they are different from everything else and no factory is drilling their car for just one out of a hundred different servos. Either Shoe Goo it down or get the McPappy case for it. Or of course, you could get another servo.

I had the same problem with the savox servo in my 1/12 scale. Ended up shoe-gooing it as a temporary fix to get the car on the track quickly.

I bought my s100lt used, but it has seen very little track time (3 events). However, the shock is quite leaky and sloppy. Rather than buying a new serpent shock, is there a better/more desirable shock that I should consider purchasing instead?

Replaced the novak electronics with a trackstar esc and killshot motor. Rewired it at the same time. Weight is 911g with regular weight Sophia body. Will use the ballast to offset the weight of the ESC.

Team Prime. CRC Encore is pretty good too.

raced my s100 for the first time this weekend after 2 weeks of testing and gearing. TQed and won at my local track RCCW. ran the box setup with the protoform Sofia and the car was fast and took the corners tight. looking forward to the class picking up and more competition.
