Default Cheap servos are the devil!!!

Dont waste your first few years learning to drive and race with a cheap servo. It is more important to have a high torque-speedy servo than any hot motor, great ESC or the newest best car kit!!! Take it from someone who learned the hard way-cheap servos are a waste!!!!

Default Still Getting Wheel Chatter

Hey Guys, I posted this question a month or so back and am still having a problem. When I run diffs in the car the front wheels seem to always make a chattering noise when entering a turn. If I install the one-way it goes away and steering is smooth but I cant always get the rear traction needed for a one-way. I installed rpm ball cups but it didnt seem to help. Anyone else have this problem? Any help or opinions would be appreciated.


Thanks, Blake.

You have probably been throught all this then, but
have you already limited your steering throw ?
also, how long since you rebuilt your CVDs ?

The Cvd's only have 8 races on them and are smooth and free. Reducing the steering throw was one thing that someone recomended to me this weekend. How much should i reduce the throw on the steering? I have been adjusting it so the steering spindle just touches the carrier and then backing it off 2 clicks on my m8, is this to much steering travel? If so, how should i adjust the base steering?

KO- Are you running on foams or rubber? If it's foams I'd get the 25lbs-40lbs. On rubber I've run 11.6- 17.5 I have no idea of what to run on concrete as I have never run on that type of surface.

Does anyone know where to get a hold of the new G+ chassis? My LHS orders the part number and keeps getting the old one. I've already got a G+, but am in the process of rebuilding my "old" car and would like to run with the new chassis.
