One build tip shows in the post that follows yours and that's replacing the servo saver with a stronger piece.

Thanks guys. I didn't like the feel of the stock servo saver and was looking for options.

My fault, thought you were asking what servo it might be. Looks like a Futaba BLS-551 if I had to guess.

I have the same one.
Anyone happen to know the part number for the Tamiya Servo Saver?

I found it on the RC market, but unfortunately is not available now, hopefully it will be soon reassorted.

had a little problem with traction rolling so have to work that out but it was only on certain parts of the track.

Not sure if this has been answered but are there any Front Steel dog bones for the front, it's the only thing on the car I find myself checking over and over again.

For anyone running 17.5 Stock Non boosted, I found a gear combo of 100 spur with 52 pinion worked great,
had to take the motor mount brace off to keep the pinion from hitting
using a spur from 100 to 104 is probably the best option.
Was this with the standard kit setup?

What surface were you running on?

Rubber or foam?

Cheers

Are the stock TCX shock shafts pretty smooth or are the titanium shock shafts the way to go? Same goes for the suspension shafts. Just seeing if I should upgrade them now while I am building or wait until I wear out the stock TCX parts.

What about shimming? Was much shimming needed on the suspension shafts or bearing areas?

Default Purple battery tape

Agno helped me find the purple battery tape. I thought I'd share since I'm sure a lot of you will want some of this bling. You have to order it from HK.
