I have been running it this way for about 2 years now. I'll get my setup up there once I get a chance I'll summarize it below.

-1.5dg Camber
-6dg Caster
-3mm ride everywhere
-1.5mm pod droop above ride height
-asc. .020" front springs-neutral
-Top Black side springs barely touching
-15K Kyosho grease in tubes and front pins
-41mm front/42mm rear BSR blues (kinda big, low traction)
-50wt in shock/Top copper center
-165mm front width, 171mm rear

i'll get my speedo setup on here too when i get my hands on it. LMK if there anything else specific you need to know.
Thanks for Sharing Donny and congrats on your efforts at worlds!
Just wondering if you can share you ESC/motor settings.

Thanks,

Brett

You could also use the Xenon steering blocks, which are a little 'nicer' and will also give you the option of changing scrub: http://xenon.ocnk.net/product-list/48

To mount the servo flat you can either just shoegoo the servo down or use servo mounts from any number of other chassis. I think the following are pretty good:

- VBC Servo Mounts (expensive, though) - B-02-VBC-5012
- Kyosho servo mounts KYOPZ029 (this red isn't a perfect colour match, fyi)
- CRC molded plastic servo mount - CRC 3315 (made for imperial screws, but should work with metric)

With the servo mounted flat and with r5 steering blocks, I believe I have 3 mm shims underneath the ballstuds on the steering blocks. Servo saver is a normal black kimbrough, lower holes.
Hi Chris,

What servo do you use with the Kyosho mounts?
I got the mounts but alas it did not work out.
I have been running a savox and it seems that it is non standard size or just a little to wide.

Thanks,

Brett

If you like the Savox servo and don't mind taking it apart, this mount it awesome. It converts the Savox to the Futaba mount spacing and you just have to run the servo on the left side of the chassis.

Yeah the problem with savox is that the spline comes out at a different point than any others so you can't get it centered using stock holes on pretty much any car. That McPappy case is the hot ticket if you want to use that servo.

Hey Brett!

I use the KO Propo 951 with the Kyosho servo mounts. As others have said, you are encountering 'the issue' with the Savox servos, where the spline is at a different center point than with all other servos. You will have a similar issue no matter the servo mounts you use, so I would recommend either using a different servo or buying the McPappy case, as linked by Ralph.

haha Cheers guys,
I have it stuck flat but wanted to mess with ackerman so I ordered the mounts.
It's a learning process right! That McPappy case looks sweet. (Glad there is a silver option) It is a cheaper option than a new servo i guess.

Loving the top btw. Consistently placing top 2 at my local club in mod. Thanks for all the help FJ, Chris and the rest of the guys on here.

Or you could do what I did at the IIC when mine came loose. A healthy dose of CA and bang. 20 seconds later back on the track

I need suggestions for some Tires for higher bite/big race conditions.
Currently running Black/yellow combo but I know there are better combos. I have been looking at the BSR Blue/double Blue and green combos and Ulti options. Will be running 17.5.
Any help is greatly appreciated because my head hurts reading for the last 3 hours on all these newer tire compounds.

Same problem here. I have a Sav÷x 1257 and the spline is about 1mm left from the middle. I use the CRC Servo mounts.
I think I will get a new Servo. and I had the Futaba S9650 on my mind. Is it any good? Is it possible to get this one centered correctly?
Thanks!
