Default Question for Losi 8 users

I've seen that there are some different castor blocks for the losi 8 chassis. I'm not sure what angle the stock blocks are , but I'm running some aluminum blocks that look pretty laid down, and I think it might be affecting my turning in slower/tighter corners, as well as my initial turn in.

What are you guys running?

Clay

Clay - I believe there are 12 and 10deg. STOCK for US is 10 and 12 for EU. If you still have the 10's, run those and see which you like better. I believe Less caster = less offpower steering but improves on-power steering

Try routing it under the rear driveshaft/rear brace/under the motor. It will give you more slack and you can secure it (if needed) to the chassis w/ servo tape.

Im thinking of an extra servo for mechanical brake!
Then the box for the transmitter has to be relocated.
That might be an solution for the short wire.
