Assuming those are either Jaco or TRC foams....thats a pretty weird tire stagger. Either go cyan/magenta or plaid/purple (thats front/rear)

I'd definately say that the 2 degrees front toe in is 90% of what's causing the understeer...

just to fire an off the wall question out there.

i seem to be having a problem keeping my car straight. i seem to have everything lined up in my steering right, but after a while my car seems to drift left or right. I can adjust on the fly with my radio, but eventually it starts drifting again to either direction.

Could it be my RTR servo? Servo saver? Pretty annoying to have to be adjusting my car mid race

Servo saver, try using an extra silver ring on it, or just get rid of it if you drive clean.

Sounds like the servo. Most RTR's do not have a high quality servo. You pay big money for a good servo but you not only get speed or torque but they center better than stock servos. Hope this helps

Randy,

Good luck with the Reedy. If you can, please post pictures of the new baby (eh, car).

Have you ever used ceramic balls in the diffs? Pretty much decided to upgrade to ceramic bearings; but, not sure if the diff balls will be worthwhile. Any advise is appreciated.

Just get a regular ruler and measure the distance between the inner front and rear of your front rims, get it equal, or shorter in the rear of the rim.

I'll post pics, but I'm not gonna rush the car, want to get this one perfect... I'll do a bit nicer job on the new chassis too, it'll have some design element to it

Ceramic diff balls are awesome, they last forever, but they do lighten the rotating mass which is awesome for carpet and high bite surfaces, but isn't what you want for low traction surfaces. I'll actually propably run weights on my spur gear at Reedy as well as steel outdrives.

James - I've thought of more stuff I need to order, please send me an IM when you get back.
