Default 1:4 scale server

Anyone ever tried using a 1:4 scale servo? I realize servo's have come a long way in the last few years but I was just curious.

So Ive noticed a few people running a 25t pinion with the stock 51t spur.

Question I have is do you guys use a different motor mount or use different bolts/nuts/washers/etc to hold the motor in?

Only reason I ask is that the 25t pinion pushes the motor out to the outer limit of the motor mount and the stock bolts dont have much to hold on to. The bolts are about to get pushed through the bigger holes at the end of the mount.

NVM, I figured out a clean way to get the 25t pinion in with the stock spur and stock motor mount. Just went to the hardware store and bought 4 very small washers that fit the allen bolt and into the motor mount slot to get a better grip in there. 2 washers per bolt.

Morning guys.

Just finished my build of the GTP2e and I've got a question about ride height. I have absolutely no prior experience in on-road rc and so I don't know what the general rules are to setting ride height. Is it like off road where you want the suspension arms parallel to the ground, or is it better to be lower than that. Any help on the subject is appreciated. Thanks!

Most of us run between 8-10mm of ride height measuring at the bottom of the chassis.

Run stiffer rear springs, my tekin 2650 on 4s,17/51 was doing wheelies at 20mph rolling power on.
