I wouldn't, no real way to ensure that everything is tight and indexed properly.

The only thing that I've actually broken on my 6 is a left rear hub....bad enough that I also broke the outer race on the outer wheel bearing. All my fault, didn't get set for the dog leg on the track properly! All in all, I've found it to be more durable than my 5 ever was.

There is a bit of play between the bearings and the hubs even on brand new parts. The solution is to score the surface of the hub with a knife which will make the bearing a tight fit. See OJs guide http://cmldistribution.co.uk/news.php?view=0000001651

Some 5mm shim washers to get rid of any end-float on the driveshafts also helps; there are some included in the kit but I needed a bit more on the rear to get rid of the play.

If you do those two things there will be almost no slop at all and the car will feel a lot nicer.

I'm yet to break something on my 6 and mine has flown into a fence a few times and a person!

Default Another quicky...

Could a couple of you please recommend a servo for this car? Planning on racing spec class (outside/rubber) till I can drive and then stepping up to the next level here in West Palm Beach. A Spektrum dx3s is in the mail.

I've been told something .10 or faster will make me happy, but that is all I know. Low profile, high speed, digital, high torque, titanium gears, uhhhh....yeah...I just know I need one to steer!

Building up the car now and this thread has already been very helpful.

Thanks for your help!

Most of the AE guys are running the xp digital DS1015

Price is reasonable and the servo is bullet proof.

caster blocks and steering arms (usally stripping out because of the caster block breakage) are the only things that break really in SS TC, maybe the occasional rear hub if you like to throw it into the corners...in 17.5 or VTA the car is pretty indestructible...

I'm running a Savox 1251, and it's working perfectly, and priced right.

Are Savox servos quiet, I have heard that they make some noise, if true, is it all the time or just when there is a load. I like quiet servos

Thanks,
Steve

I also run a Savox mg1251 servo. It is awesome, but I haven't heard a louder servo. It only really barks with a load though.
